How to use "Toothed" in context?


Prehistoric humans were unique in having lower incisors centralized in the front of their mouth, while modern humans have them in a more disperse pattern. Prehistoric humans likely used these teeth for breaking then chewing food. This led to the popular idea that prehistoric humans were actually omnivores, eating everything. However, recent evidence suggests that these teeth were actually used mainly for chewing tough items like nuts or hard fruits, which would not have been easily eaten by other animals.
