What animals have teeth like humans?
As humans, we are considered omnivores because we eat both plants and meat. Though there are many animals who are also omnivores, like bears and pigs, human teeth have evolved specifically for our diets and eating habits. We use our molars for grinding and our incisors and canines for ripping and biting into our food.
