Some whales have teeth: beluga whales have small white teeth. Those that do are called toothed whales or Odontocetes. no they don't
Keratin is a type of folding protein found in hair nails and skin...it is the thing that makes hair dye cling to your hair but hair dye also strips the hair of keratin when the dye comes off...also keratin in skin gives it elasticity and makes dye such as henna stick to your skin. hope this helps!
Keratin is a type of organic compound known as a protein. It is astructural protein found in places like the hair and fingernails.
it depends on the type of whale. Narwhals, for example, have only two teeth, one (or sometimes both) of which breaks through the mouth and grows into a thirteen foot tusk. other whales, such as the sperm whale, have between 50 and 80, while dolphins (which are a sub-category of toothed whales) can h…ave over 100. . IS A BALEEN A BALENA . (MORE)
Keratin removers can contain . acetone . low grade alcohol and . any kind of oil.
whale sharks have 3000 little teeth but they do not use many due totheir special ways of feeding
Teeth of killer whales are adapted for ripping and tearing but not for chewing. The number of teeth varies among individuals: often 10 to 14 teeth on each side of the jaw -- a total of 40 to 56 teeth. Each tooth is about 3 inches long and approximately 1 inch in diameter.
blue whales have baleen this is a type of broom bristle fiber and it is only located on the top of its mouth this helps it swallow its favorite fish herring.
Where I'm from, whales teeth a considered "prominent" and are highly valued because of its place in our culture. Anyways... such a tooth could be held in both hands.
There are two types of whales what is the name of the type of whale that hunts and kills prey using its teeth?
Orca, or Killer Whale. Another piece of advice. The Orca, more commonly called the Killer Whale, is not a whale at all. In fact, it is a dolphin.
Structural proteins are fibrous proteins. The most familiar of the fibrous proteins are probably the keratins, which form the protective covering of all land vertebrates: skin, fur, hair, wool, claws, nails, hooves, horns, scales, beaks and feathers. Equally widespread, if less visible, are the acti…n and myosin proteins of muscle tissue. Another group of fibrous structural proteins are the silks and insect fibers. In addition, there are the collagens of tendons and hides, which form connective ligaments within the body and give extra support to the skin where needed. (MORE)
Most definately. Killer Whales -- odonticetes -- are pure carnivores and do in fact have teeth. Mysticetes or baleen whales do not.
Some species of whale's teeth are made of ivory. Most, however, arenot. Sperm whales are one species of ivory toothed whale. Eachtooth can weigh up to 1.5 kilogram.
No, many other species of whale have teeth, however most are nowhere near as sharp.
The sperm whale is the world's largest predator and has the largestteeth. Each tooth in a sperm whale weighs an amazing 1.1 kilogramor over two pounds.
No. There are toothed whales and baleen whales. Baleen whales do not have teeth; the baleen is like a strainer that hangs down from the upper part of the mouth and lets the whale catch plankton, shrimp, small squid, and other small sea creatures. ([P.S] Hope I helped you)
humpback whales have baleen, not teeth. The baleen filters out the water so that they just eat the krill.
A sperm whale possesses teeth with cementum cells overlying dentin cells. Unlike human teeth (which are comprised mostly of enamel on the tooth portion outside of the gum) sperm whale teeth have cementum outside the gum. Only in larger whales does some enamel show where the cementum has been worn aw…ay on the tip of the tooth, revealing the underlying enamel. (MORE)
In semi plain English keratin is a tipe of folding Protien...folding protein is when protein folds...not sure why though...keratin is around the outer part of hair and is also in protein...or skin...something like that...anyway as i was saying...keratin also has something in it that makes color like… henna and hair dye cling to it...it also makes die last longer...but hair dye takes off that layer of keratin so if you dye your hair alot it will be harder to make the dye stick t your hair...I'm not sure if keratin is replenishable though...i looked this up all over the internet and the words they use blow your mind!so ya...hope this helps!

They are fibrous proteins. Fibrous proteins are structural proteinshence beauty products often claim to increase collagen to firm theskin. Keratin is found in things such as nails, claws, wool andhair and is responsible for the appearance of things such as curlyor straight hair.
Whales do not lose their teeth, as a matter of fact. Their teeth are permanent. They can lose a tooth but it will never grow back. The only way a whale can loose a took is if another animal knocks it out or doesn't fall on purpose. But it is not natural for any whale to lose its teeth. Thank you!
Keratin is a protein that forms the outer layer of the skin, as well as hair and nails. It is made from amino acids by the animal's body cells.
Its because of its diet, which is mainly fish. Most cetacea actually do have teeth, from the smaller porpoises to the huge Sperm Whale. The only whales that don't have teeth are the baleen whales, such as the Blue Whale and the fin whale.
Decorative carvings made from whale teeth are called scrimshaw.These carvings are also made of walrus tusks and similar materials.
Blue whales are baleen whales. They have thin plates of this finger shaped structures that hang from the upper jaw. These act as a filter.
Keratin is a protein so, it is made up of amino acids (simplest form of proteins).
No the blue whales have bristles like the humpback to act as a filter to catch plankton and krill.
Right whales, gray whales, humpback whales, and blue whales are baleen whales, which means that they don't have teeth. They cannot eat large fishes, seals, and sea lions. They only eat plankton.
THE TOOTHLESS WHALES: blue whales, finback whales, right whales, sei whales, humpback whales, and gray whales. THE TOOTHED WHALES: white beluga whales, black beluga whales (pilot whales), orcas (killer whales), sperm whales.
Of course see now killer whales are toothed whales and tilikum is a toothed whale so he has teeth that are triangular shape but round at the tip. killer whales dont use there teeth that much when they are in captivity because the way they eat there food is swallowing it it is because they have no ga…g reflects. so dont worry they wont harm you even though they are the top predetor of the whole ocean! thanks!

All the whales usually eat the sharks as their normal food diet.They also even eat the killer whale or the orca. Not all whales eat sharks. Humpback whales (like all baleenwhales) filter feed on tiny crustaceans ( krill ), plankton,and small fish (including herring, mackerel,) from the water.
Bowhead whales are baleen whales, which means they do not have teeth. Instead, they have plates of baleen, a keratin-based substance. Each plate has hair at the tip.
They dont have teeth they have baleen so they can filter their small food (like krill and small fish)
Well whales without teeth swallow by opening their mouth wide but they have to be very smart and clever thought so their preys dont see them
A fin whale ( Balaenoptera physalus ) doesn't have teeth, being a baleen whale. It's baleen is made up of keratin, the same thing fingernails and hair are made of. They do develop tooth buds as fetuses, but these disappear before birth.
Whales are mammals and have never had scales, so no. Killer whale, dolphin, porpoise, and sperm whale teeth are modified bones in their skull and jaw, just like ours. Baleen whales, like humpback and blue whales, have large carotene plates growing out of their jaws instead of regular teeth.
The whales with teeth are called toothed whales. The ones that don't have teeth are called baleen whales. Baleen whales use filters to drain out water from plankton.
you know a broom has like like very skinny straws that's what the whales teeth are
whale baleen is not is teeth is the same stuff that your fingernails is made out of and it is strong but bendeble and brakeble
There are many different species of whales but one of the biggest differences in these whales are that some have teeth and others have baleens. the sperm whale is a thoothed whale and the killer whale too. The teeth of the toothed whales are a use of eating and the probability of fighting.Some peo…ple use these teeth to make drawings or carve them. The baleen is located in the mouth of a baleen whale. The baleen is used for eating, the whales takes a big gulp of fish or krill( a type of food that the baleen whale enjoys) and with its tung it pushes out all the excess water to eat the fish. The Baleen is a series of a straw like lines. (MORE)
Any of the baleen whales do not have teeth. Examples of baleen whales are the humpback and the southern right whale.

Whales and fish can certainly have teeth. Sharks are fish, and theyhave teeth. Piranhas are fish, they have teeth. Sperm whales haveteeth. Pilot whales have teeth, Beluga whales have teeth.
Some do, some don't. The toothed whales have teeth (whoda thunk it?). The baleen whales don't, except briefly during the embryonic stage.
they are very krooked and spaced out so all of the krill goes in and most of the water stays out
A toothed whale (dolphins, porpoises, killer whales, beluga whales, narwhals, sperm whales)'s teeth are just called teeth. A baleen whale (blue whale, right whale, gray whale, humpback whales)'s teeth are called baleen.
No it's made up of a dinosaurs bone and teeth and that is pretty interesting for men and boys
Yes they do have. The Narwhal (meaning "corpse whale" in Old Norse) is a rarely seen Arctic whale. This social whale is known for the very long tooth that males have.
some do! it's called baleen, whales who have that are known as baleen whales! however, not all whales have baleen. like orcas, they have teeth. anyways, i hope that helps!
Unlike human teeth, which are composed mostly of enamel on the portion of the tooth outside of the gum, whale teeth have cementum outside the gum.
