No Fish Story

How great are these fish’s teeth? I love ‘em! Once again, thanks to my one and only blog fan (my Uncle John) for sending me this photo.

According to Becky Crew’s  blog on the Scientific American website this is a Sheepshead fish which is a, “common North American marine species that span from Cape Cod and Massachusetts through to Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil.” http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/running-ponies/2013/03/21/the-sheepshead-fish-has-human-teeth-but-its-okay-because-it-wont-give-you-a-psychedelic-crisis/

Crew goes on to explain that this fish has incisors in front and molars in back just like humans do, but the Sheepshead fish has three rows of molars, good for crushing shells other marine animals that it wants to eat.

So if you want a great dental office, there’s no need to go fishing around. You’ve found one,  just give us a call 703-532-1712  FallsChurchSmiles.com
