Savanna Mammals: ADAPTATIONS TO DIET

Leopard
A. The dental formula of a leopard is:
I. 3/4 1/1 3/3 = 30 teeth
II. 3/3 2/2 4/4 = 36 teeth
III. 3/3 1/1 4/4 = 32 teeth
IV. 4/4 1/1 3/4 = 34 teeth

B. The leopard will show a number of adaptations for its diet, which one does NOT apply?
I. Jaw articulation
II. Glenoid fossa is deep
III. Sectorial teeth
IV. Well developed diastema


Buffalo
C) The dental formula of a buffalo is:
I. 0/3 0/0 2/2 3/3 = 26 teeth
II. 0/2 0/0 3/3 2/2 = 24 teeth
III. 0/3 1/1 3/3 2/2 = 30 teeth
IV. 2/2 0/0 2/2 3/3 = 28 teeth

D) Which dentition term does not apply to the teeth of the buffalo?
I. Lophodont
II. Hypsodont
III. Diastema
IV. Bunodont


Bonus Question: (it's not multiple choice, but rather a single term)
E) Even-toed ungulates have special crescent-shaped ridges of enamel on their teeth, what is the term used to describe these ridges?

GOOD LUCK!

Kath maybe you won't be hanging alone :)

reading bout teeth again it seems that Hypsodont teeth can be broken in to two types o teeth Selenodont and Lophodont.
Selenodont - found in the Artiodactyl which includes camels, members of the deer family, antelope and cattle
Lophodont - found in the Perissodactyl which includes horses, rhino and tapir

Then the Bunodont teeth are found in animals which have a very varied or omnivorous diet and this includes humans.

The diastema definitely applies to Buffalo

Looking forward to the answer to this question :D

Hi all!

I am out in the bush doing some research for my MSc so I have limited connectivity, but I'll post the answers so long - please post any questions and I will answer them when I get home on Sunday. I will also post definitions to all the terms I have used so that we can all learn! Will also post the scores on Sunday as it is a bit difficult to work it out now.

Hope this is all okay with all of you?

A) iii - 32 teeth
B) iv - well developed diastema
C) i - 26 teeth
D) iv - bunodont
E) Selenodont

Again, I will give all the reasons, explanations, etc. from my Zoology 3 notes when I am home! Hope you are all happy!

Here are some simple terms:

Jaw articulation - can be lateral (herbivores for chewing) or vertical (carnivores for biting down).

Diastema - the space between incisors and cheek teeth, well developed in most herbivores as they lack canines, not very developed in carnivores.

Bunodont - teeth with seperate cusps covered with enamel (all carnivores).

Sectorial - cusps pointed and blade like for cutting (all carnivores)

Brachydont - low crowned (carnivores)

Carnassial tooth - last upper premolar and first lower molar, specialised for shearing (self sharpening) (carnivores)

Lophodont - separate cusps and no solid covering of enamel on occlusal surface giving the appearance of a rough surface (herbivores)

Hypsodont - high crowned and often open rooted so they can continue to grow when worn down by chewing (herbivores)

PLEASE SHOUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS!!

According to my little marking sheet (1 point for A-D and 2 points for E), KATH UK is the winner! Well done Kath, you are IT!

Thanks again to all of you for taking part!!
