How many teeth does a alligator have?
the crocodilian species, among them the american
alligator have between 74 and 80 teeth , divided
into their 2 jaws.
But the interesting thing concerning crocodiles,
alligators and so on is the fact that they
change teeth all life, when one falls, another
grows in the same place, like our own nails.
Thanks for asking NEWTON!
