Teeth are often commented on by people and prominently posted about by Kevin, and there are many posts of the veterinary procedures some of the animals have needed over the years.

Kevin does not file down their teeth. ^,^ Some people make me laugh with how silly they can be. Negative people see media with animals with blunt fangs and jump to negative conclusions, or maybe are just trying to get others to. The fact is, predators chew on a lot of hard bone: Their teeth naturally wear down over time and can even get broken. Pet owners should be no stranger to this. The photos that prompt the accusations are of older animals with naturally worn down teeth. - And, believe me, even blunt-looking fangs can still do a lot of damage.

Ah, and the tooth necklace he wears is not a trophy: It's a baby tooth from Vayetse, and a very rare find and memento. I remember in my youth I had found a baby tooth of my cat and wish I still had it. At the time I had thought it really cool but had no idea how rare that was, that I would never see another. I do have a few baby teeth from horses that I came across, though (and a grasshopper exoskeleton, and a bird skull ^,^)... but I digress. ;p

In Hanging With Hyenas, Kevin clearly shows the difference between young pointy teeth and the well-worn ones of an elder.
