See Inside a Shark's Mouth!

Great White Shark
A shark can have hundreds of teeth in its mouth and, conveniently, can replace them if they fall out or become damaged.

Many Sharp Rows
Throughout its life, a shark's old teeth are shed continually, and new ones are rotated into place on a conveyer belt-like structure. A shark's teeth are not attached to the jaw, but embedded in the flesh.
