Geese Have Teeth

Technically its cartilage, called tomium. It looks and functions the same way as a row of teeth, but it’s a growth made from the beak itself.

One distinguishing feature of tomium is that it doesn’t have any enamel. Enamel is the hard, protective layer that covers real teeth in humans and other mammals.

That being said, these “teeth” are not soft by any means, and a bite from a goose defending its nest can do some real damage – especially if you’re bitten and try to pull away too fast.

Tomium are mainly used by geese to grab and tear up grass and the odd snail/rodent they happen to come across.
