SKU: CROC6 Categories: , , Tags: ,


It is believed that crocodiles would find slow moving water to hatch and raise their young in a shallow pool where large predators were less likely.  These juvenile crocodile teeth (largest measures .41 inches) have a worn tips from feeding before being shed.

As crocodiles eat, they break off the teeth as new ones are erupting through the jaw. The teeth are constantly growing. These small broken teeth without the roots are called “spitters”. They are broken from a live animal. When a creature dies the teeth fall out with the roots, they are called “rooted teeth”.
