Bottlenose Dolphins have 18 – 27 pairs of small conical teeth in both jaws. Their peg-like teeth serve to grasp but not to chew food. When a shoal of fish has been found, the animals work as a team to keep the fish close together and maximize the harvest.

Pink dolphins have a powerful jaw. The front row of teeth helps to puncture and to hold fishes (or other preys). The back row is for crushing and smashing. After they catch their food pink dolphins swallow their food without chewing.

Toothed whales (or “odontocetes”) are so named because of the teeth in their mouths. However, a whale’s teeth look very different from human or even dog teeth, for that matter. Most toothed whales have cone-shaped teeth. A toothed whale also uses its teeth very differently than most other mammals.

Flipper, the world's most famous dolphin, was a bottlenose dolphin. The other reason is they hold a special place in our hearts, since most the dolphins at Dolphins Plus are Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. These majestic animals are dark grey and, as you'd expect from the name, have a short and blunt rostrum.

Most dolphins have equal-sized conical shaped teeth in both upper and lower jaws (porpoises’ teeth are spade-shaped) perfect for grasping fish and squid. Like most mammals, newborn dolphin teeth are still embedded in the gums. Their teeth will start erupting in the first 5 weeks of life.
