Sharks have the most number of teeth but i'd say that the piranhas have the sharpest teeth. :)

The deffinition of sharp, as i know it, is that the angle formed in 2d by any longitudinal section on the tooth will be minimal. Pirania have wide teeth, so i voted big cats

The carnivorous piranha's teeth are razor sharp, and don't have the benefit of a huge jaw like the others.

If they're able to do that, then there will be no boat on the amazon river surface.. :lol:

Is the structure of the teeth help?? because when we see the shark teeth, they are formed like a saw surfaced teeth. Is this structure helps them to penetrates their preys faster??
