Turtles do not have teeth. Instead they have beaks. A turtle’s beak catches, holds, and slices food. Turtles are born with a tooth referred to as a “hatchling tooth” or “egg tooth” that they use to break open their eggs during the hatching process; however they lose this tooth soon after they hatch.
Their jaws also are equipped with horned ridges which basically serve the same function as teeth. Carnivorous turtles have sharp ridges, whereas herbivorous turtles have more of a serrated design.
Although turtles do not have teeth, the power that their mouths can put forward should not be underestimated. If a turtle bites you, you will definitely believe that they have teeth, as their bite can be just as painful as any creature with teeth, if not more painful.
