A Ferret Has A Tooth For Everything

A ferret has four different types of teeth, all used for different things.

Twelve small teeth known as the incisors and are used for grooming.  Four canine teeth are used for killing prey.  Twelve premolar teeth are used by the ferret to tear and chew food.  And finally, six molars are used to crush food.
