Jaws

by on Jun.17, 2011, under Animals, Health, Kids, Nature

One of the things that makes sharks so fierce is that they have multiple rows of teeth. Sometimes it affects kids too. It usually resolves itself when permanent teeth replace baby teeth. About 10% of all kids experience this, but it usually only lasts a couple of weeks at most. The Hunterian Museum at the University of Glasgow hosts the Bryce Skulls, a collection of 13 skulls that were excavated by Professor Thomas Hastie Bryce. The majority of the skulls were excavated by Bryce on his expedition to Arran in 1900. One of the skulls is particularly unusual. It's a child's skull with adult teeth coming in. Because the condition disappears so quickly, no other skulls have been found in that part of the world in this state.
