They are known for their razor-sharp teeth, but a new study by the dangerous fish have surprised researchers, revealing how important their teeth really are.

The study suggests that the fearsome fish are omnivorous, they are in a position to regenerate the rows of teeth at the same time. The teeth, as well as making them act as a single unit, the researchers discovered.

“The teeth are a solid battery which has been locked down and all are lost at one time and on one side of the face,” said one of the study’s co-authors, Adam Summers, in a statement. The new teeth to wear down to ‘hats’ until they are ready to break out. Thus, they are never toothless, although they are constantly replacing dull looking teeth, with a new focus”.

“I think that, in a sense, we have found a solution to a problem that is obvious, but no-one had articulated it before,” Summer added, pointing to the question of how to piranahas can regenerate teeth.

The impact of a piranha bite is more points, but they can also lose and regenerate their teeth multiple times throughout their lives.

The researchers used computed tomography (CT) scan is different because of the observation that it is difficult to replace a single tooth, a discovery which would allow the study’s lead author, Matthew Kolmann, as compared with the ‘ a ‘missing link’ in a given period of time at the moment.”

“With the interlocking teeth of the fish are going to have a very sharp tongue, which is able to crack a nut, or cut the meat of a whole battery of teeth,” said one of the other co-author, Karly Cohen, in a statement. Between the piranhas and the pacus there is a lot of diversity in the manner in which the teeth engage in each other, and it seems to be related to how the teeth are to be used.”

The study, which was published in the journal Evolution & Development.
