Teeth

Post by Louise NI » Wed Jan 23, 2008 12:33 pm

Smokey and Bacon are 16 month old gilts. I was looking in Bacon's mouth and she seems to have two row of incisors on the bottom!! As I don't know anything about pig teeth in general can someone enlighten me. Her sister Smokey just wants to play when I try to look in her mouth so I cannot compare.

Hi Wendy. Only getting back to the site now. I have had another good look at Bacon's teeth. It doesn't look like another row as I thought at first but the two canine teeth (think thats what they are called) are leaning in towards each other and coming up behind the bottom front teeth. Still can't get a look in Smokey's mouth to compare!! :roll: [/code]

Yes pig teeth are pretty grim and being prepared to poke about in their mouths is a sure indication of how much we love them!!! : :P
