Possum chewcard incisor profiles by LandcareRes

Possum incisor teeth typical profiles.

These shapes are characteristic of possum incisor teeth impressions on chewcards. The impressions are made by the two front incisor teeth (lower or upper jaw). Each pair of marks (one for each tooth) are characteristically separated by a medial notch of up to 1 mm (the gap between the two teeth). Complete incisor pairs are 4.5 - 7 mm wide.
