Why do animals have skeletons? What are the different types of teeth for?

Handle a range of real animal skulls such as tiger, dolphin and crocodile, and study their teeth to identify carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

Compare to human teeth and look at the different types. Challenge yourself to guess the animal from the mystery skulls and skeletons.
