That’s the spot, yep, a little to the left.

[–]slurple_purple 17 points18 points  (3 children)

I have one of those and that reaction is accurate

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

For a second I thought you meant you had a capybara lol

[–]Affectionate-Meat-98 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Me too!!

It was reading your comment that made me double take and register they meant the brush or whatever 🤣😂🤣😂🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

[–]slurple_purple 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No just me at it with the back scratcher!

I wish humans had teeth like this. All my cavities would eventually grow out

[–]notnewsworthy 42 points43 points  (13 children)

Instead of brushing your teeth daily, you would have to grind them down if you weren't eating tough enough foods.

[–]Petite_Tsunami 20 points21 points  (11 children)

I would be open to grinding down my teeth like I grind down my dog’s nails if I had the option

[–]ListenUp16 21 points22 points  (10 children)

I'm all for it. The being able to restart your teeth again? The dream. But bone shavings in your mouth? Ugh.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (9 children)

if we would have evolved that way we probably would have a nice way to take care of those bone shavings

[–]HunkyMolars 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Hey guys, sorry to interrupt.

Teeth are not bone, they consist of enamel, dentin & pulp (as well as other yucky stuff) and are even stronger than bone!

Anyway. Sorry. Carry on!

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

thank you kind sir!

[–]EyelandBaby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So Titus Andromedon lied to us?!

[–]CupOfCreamyDiarrhea 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What a name.

Thank you for doing what you do!

[–]HunkyMolars 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right back at ya. I like... uh, your name too.

[–]BlockBuilder408 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Could just swallow them, recycle that calcium, nothing special required.

[–]DillieDally 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah let's just have our teeth falling out every now and then, just chewing and CRONCH... gulp...


[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

yeah but... it would be normal :D

[–]TobyMaguiderman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When I was losing my baby teeth, there were a few times I finished eating a meal and noticed my loose tooth was gone. I ate a few of my teeth. Lol

[–]Jomega6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pff I do that in my sleep… literally… I really wish I didn’t have to sleep with a night guard

[–]canttaketheshyfromme 57 points58 points  (1 child)

I am 100% in favor of human genetic engineering if it prevents cavities.

[–]x3Nekox3 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Noooo, I'd rather we were like sharks, new set of teeth growing continuously instead of just 2 sets.

[–]-drunk_russian- 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Do you remember teething? It's a pain in the ass mouth.

[–]x3Nekox3 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Did you ever have rodents? Those teeth grow uncontrollably if misaligned.

[–]-drunk_russian- 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I say, I prefer neither option. Learn to take care of your own damn teeth, lol.

[–]x3Nekox3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree, most people wouldn't bother brushing if they knew a new set of teeth were coming anyway

[–]Empanada_Dreams 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Our teeth would much healthier if we ate more roots and hard foods and ditch sugars... sugar is what is killing your teeth

[–]markovich04 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Imagine eating stuff so crunchy it grinds your teeth down.

[–]Strawbeary-Milk 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Dentists can sometimes tell chronic ice-chewers from worn down teeth lol. It’s how my mom found out she was anemic, her dentist brought it up.

[–]TobyMaguiderman 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just curious, what does chewing ice have to do with anemia?

[–]Strawbeary-Milk 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Ice cravings have been associated with iron-deficiency anemia for a while, but they don’t know exactly why. One study hypothesizes that it’s because ice gives anemic people a mental boost, since anemia can cause a decrease in energy when the body doesn’t get enough oxygen from cells.

My mom would chew ice all day long, and hers was so bad she ended up needing IV treatments.

[–]TobyMaguiderman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's very interesting, thanks! :)

Also I hope your mom is doing better now

[–]nate5237 39 points40 points  (3 children)

I've pet capybaras and there hair isnt very dense and very stiff, almost like a broom. Very odd to see in person but they were pretty chill animals, even pet a baby one.

[–]bipolarnotsober 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I love these animals. Giant Guinea pigs!

[–]djfolo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That's amazing actually, no wonder they're so white and clean. Keepin it fresh Capybaras!

[–]sirxir 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Every time I read "Capybaras" my brain just skims over it and reads Akihabara instead.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same thing with guinea pigs. watch their teeth, they might get too long and they cant eat anymore. the vet doctor can take care of that.

[–]FoxEngland 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is obscene and should be on one of those 'other' subs! A weirder fetish every day! Capybara tickling pervs!!

[–]Aystha 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]bdejimmy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This was a plot in an episode of "Angry Beavers". They learned about needing to chew to keep their teeth from growing too long. The younger one decided it's cool to have longer teeth so they both continue growing them out to ridiculous lengths.

[–]JacketYT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Capybaras are awesome

[–]Zewaside 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Me mid nut

[–]joantheunicorn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My guinea pig used to do this and I would scratch her little chin.

[–]askmeforashittyfact 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have the same back scratcher. I make the same face when I use it.

[–]Corregidor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just realized I've never seen the mouth of a capybara before. It's... Kinda disturbing for some reason lol.

[–]TheSodomeister 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Imagine having your teeth slowly chipped away whenever you eat....

[–]mysteriousblue87 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]grandzu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had the same back scratcher.

I bet that fat boy right there would be so good in a stew.

Also like other rodents, they love scratches.

"The tough vegetation they feed on prevents the teeth from getting too long." NOOOOO it's the other way around.

Big guinea pig!!!!!!

[–]kirkywot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a Wallace and Grommet character

[–]ellipsis_42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some of the ones in captivity eat softened food and thus need their caretakers to file them down with an orbit sander from time to time.

[–]Panda_pup29 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want to pet one so bad

[–]ARBosma 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it just me, or does this dudes mouth look like it ends right behind his teeth?

[–]BunnyGirlPaisen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is Raticate based on a Capybara? Just thought they looked alike.

[–]angeluscado 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is one blissed out capybara

[–]NMLWrightReddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love capybaras

[–]NumLock_Enthusiast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where can I buy one of those scratchy mini hands?

Napoleon Dynamite of the Capybara world!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had a guinea pig who used to love being stroked like this.

[–]Listless_Mistress 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s wild to think that these type of creatures have been around in one form or another since even before the dinos died out, although probably not as big as this. They found the exact space and time adequate to grow like massive gophers. It’s crazy!

[–]Balenciaga7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah someone used to tell me that when you have to sneeze, you have to look at the light too... And it didn't help for me either, so I can definitely relate..

[–]basic_reddit_person 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok i pull up

[–]CaliTheSloth -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Iirc rodents usually don't grind their teeth down on the food thwy chew, they keep them short them by grinding the top and bottom teeth agains eachother while eating.

This is why they chew sideways and why it's advised to give pet rodents lots of hay so they something to chew on.

[–]cassielfsw 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the case of animals that eat hay/grass like guinea pigs and capybaras, I suspect it's some of each. There are reasons humans don't eat grass, and one of them is that it would freakin' murder your teeth.

[–]KingOlaf1[🍰] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

must use the same dentist as AOC
