Q:

What animal has the cleanest mouth?

A:

While the bacteria content of every animal's mouth is unknown, there has been plenty of speculation about which animal has the cleanest mouth. Although it may seem easy to compare, according to an interview on Live Science, comparing different species' bacteria content is like comparing apples to oranges.

Due to the fact that all species have different breeds of bacteria that are able to survive in their saliva, it would be extremely hard to answer the question of which animal has the cleanest mouth. There's a myth that dogs have the cleanest mouth, perhaps even cleaner than humans. However, recent research has proven that to be untrue.

  • Q:

    How do fish eat?

    A:

    Just as in humans and other types of animals, fish eat by taking food in through the mouth. Food starts to break down in the mouth before being moved along to the stomach, where enzymes work to break the food down even further. After leaving the stomach, food moves along the intestine, where it is broken down into small, usable packages that can be absorbed into the blood.
