    I'm not sure there's an eel without teeth, unless they play hockey.

    I was recently given a Tire Track Eel. Just trying to learn about them. Since they are not "true" eels I thought the best question for me would be if they have teeth. I've not been able to find anything about the teeth or lack there of. Unless they are so tiny to see-it doesn't look like it has any. I saw where one person said theirs tried to gnaw on their finger but they didn't really feel it. Soooooooooooo hence the question. Thanks

    All I can say for sure about eels and teeth is that some eels have a second set of jaws, and are the inspiration for the xenomorph extra jaw in the Alien franchise.
