English: Wolf mandible diagram showing the names and positions of the teeth. The dental notation for the upper-jaw teeth uses the upper-case letters I to denote incisors, C for canines, P for premolars, and M for molars, and the lower-case letters i, c, p and m to denote the mandible teeth. Teeth are numbered using one side of the mouth and from the front of the mouth to the back.


Desktop publishing software - The base-image came from work that is publicly available (CC BY 4.0) - It has had a few changes made to it and it is not the same as the original. This diagram includes the m3 tooth (the small last tooth in the mandible) which all extant wolves have but few Canis fossils are found that include them because they perish easily.
