Aardvarks do have teeth; however these teeth are located at the back of the jaw and are often referred to as “cheek teeth”. The aardvark’s teeth are actually even one of its most distinctive characteristics. Instead of having a pulp cavity in their tooth, they have a number of thin tubes of dentine (a calcified tissue of the body), each containing pulp held together by cementum (a specialized calcified substance covering the roof of the mouth.) That’s correct, you heard right, these creatures do not have enamel on their teeth, their teeth are made of a certain kind of cement.
It is because of this that their teeth are easily worn away. The aardvark’s teeth continue to grow throughout its life and new born aardvarks have some conventional teeth such as incisors and canines, however these fall out and are not replaced. An aardvark’s teeth are very soft. Another interesting thing to know about these creatures teeth is that they only possess 10 of them total.
