Question

Do elephants actually have teeth?

Answer

-Yes, they do. Their tusks (or for Asian females, tushes) are the incisive. Behind are the molars, flat and "mill-like", one in each upper and lower jaw, making a total of four. They will however, shift this molar supplement six times during their lifespan, making the total amount of molars 24 (with the tusks 26).
