The way these lil guys eat, with such a viracious appetite, and when they take food from your fingers, I was saying that --they are like lil pirahnas..you can feel something in there when they clamp onto your finger..oh yea..that's teeth!!
Faith had some gorgeous bettas. Extremely high quality in the early 2000s. Too bad I couldn't get my hands on a pair.
Bettas have teeth, since they are carnivorous. I believe I read somewhere that, in relevance to body size, bettas have a more powerful bite than a great white shark. Good thing we don't have giant bettas swimming in our lakes lol.
Yes, they do have tiny piranha-like teeth near the back of their mouths. I read somewhere that proportionally, bettas have more bite force than a Great White shark. I never looked the same way at my sweet little betta, I can tell you.
...I never knew they had teeth...I learn everyday on this site I swear.
I've wondered but I've honestly never been bitten by a betta yet to find out the hard way myself.
But now I know.
And knowing is half the battle.
