The Great White Shark has five rows of around

46 teeth each. It has an average total of 230 teeth. 24-26

positioned in the top jaw and 22-24 positioned in the lower jaw

making 48-50 different teeth. The teeth are arranged in rows of 5-7

teeth like a conveyor belt. When a tooth falls out from the front

the tooth from the next row moves up to take its place. This

results in the perfect eating machine.
