    Why do so many people have wonky teeth but animals dont??

    I was just thinking this as my cat spudge has just lost his baby teeth, lots of people I know have wonky teeth but I don't ever remember having a pet with wonky teeth.
    If its a case of bad genes why don't any of my pets have wonky teeth as some of them must get mates from the lower end of the gene pool?

    Never thought about this before ha ha. But yes, you may be right.

    animals don't shove bottles, fingers etc in their developing mouths.........

    Clearly not enough inbreeding

    My rabbit did :thumbsup:

    My rabbit had wonky bottom teeth, had to have them clipped all of the time because they grew out at stupid angles. :-D

    Some people still have perfectly straight teeth & I assume they shoved bottles & fingers in their mouth.

    just did a google search for beavers and I may go blind with the results:whistling:

    Surely the fact that we have so many more mates to choose from than most animals would mean inbreeding would be more likely in most animals therefore more chance of wonky teeth syndrome!
    I've had about twenty animals & all have had perfect teeth but three of my friends & my girlfriend all have wonky teeth :?

    Something foooking big :w00t:

    i blame jawbreakers:thumbsup:

    I dunno really...

    perhaps we inherit the teeth issues from our fathers...

    I guess animals with poor teeth would have just died and so not had chance to reproduce.

    Well - if the animals are doing it with good teeth being the result, then maybe there should be more cousin love - just sayin . . . . . :w00t: :-D

    I suppose after a few drinks someone's perfectly formed teeth isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind :w00t:
    Saying that I think a lot of people do care about teeth, would you go for someone with seriously goofy or wonky teeth?

    You sure about that?
