Dental Anatomy of Rabbits
Rabbits are herbivores. Their teeth are unrooted and so grow continually. Like rodents, rabbits may need their incisors trimmed if they are overgrown.
Rabbits have an interesting arrangement of their upper incisors in that the second incisor is behind the first incisor. The second incisor is referred to as the peg tooth.
