How many teeth does a rabbit have? (Answer to Pop Quiz)

The correct answer is c) 28
Rabbits have four incisors, two on the top, and two on the bottom. Right behind the top incisor teeth are two small peg-like teeth called auxiliary incisors or "peg teeth". In addition, rabbits have cheek teeth that they use to grind their food. These are the 6 upper premolars, the 4 lower premolars, 6 upper molars and 6 lower molars.

For more info on rabbit teeth, check out the oral health care article from the 3-9 issue of House Rabbit Journal.
