Did you know that tortoises and turtles don’t have teeth at all? They have to rely on their jaws to tear food apart. The Leatherback Sea Turtle, for instance, grabs food with two sharp, pointed cusps — one on its upper jaw and one on its lower jaw. The Leatherback’s gullet stops its prey (usually jellyfish) from escaping. Its throat is lined with sharp spines that point downward and shred the jellyfish to pieces as it travels downwards to the turtle’s stomach. Yowza!
