A. Rabbit
B. Man
C. Sheep
D. Cat
E. Lizard

Correct Answer: Option E

E. Lizard


Homodont dentition is found in the majority of vertebrates such as fish, amphibia, and reptiles in which all teeth are functionally and anatomically of the same type, although their size may be variable depending on the location. Sometimes functionally some teeth may be specialized as fangs of snakes.

Other types of dentitions are:

  • Monophyodont teeth
  • Acrodont teeth
  • Pleurodont teeth
  • Thecodont dentition
  • Heterodont dentition
