    No, the average length of each tooth is 1/12th of an inch.  They do, however, have several thousand teeth (though they don’t assist in feeding in any way).

    No, they don’t. They have a few thousand teeth, but each tooth is only about 1/12th of an inch in length.

    No, whale sharks do not have very large teeth at all but they do have a lot of them! On average, each tooth is only about 1/12th of an inch in length, or 3 millimeters. But overall, there are 11-12 rows of teeth in a whale sharks mouth, and a few thousand teeth overall. Interestingly, the original name for the whale shark was “rhiodonte”, which translates to “rasp tooth.”
