    Yes, if you mean that they can easily regenerate their teeth. At any given time a shark has about 3,000 teeth and it will have approximately 35,000 during its lifetime. Some types of shark, like the nurse shark, replace their front row of teeth every 10 to 14 days when actively feeding in the summertime than with much less frequency in the winter.

    Pretty much. Sharks have the most powerful jaw in the world and rely on their teeth a lot. If they loose a tooth, another one comes forward to replace it. Sharks can go through 20,000 during their lifetime.
