Dear Miss Daisy,
Krill eat plankton , animals smaller than krill. Krill do not have teeth
Your teeth are inside your mouth the toothlike structure of krill are
outside the mouth. Krill have clawlike arms and those arms have toothlike
projection on them. Look closely at a crab's claws. The toothy projections
on the claws are just like the ones krill have.
So ,yes krill have teeth but on the outside not on the inside.

Dear Dr. Ford,
I learned that the big blue whale eats krill. The krill is the size
of your pinky.
What do krill eat? Do krill have teeth?
P.S. How do blue whales blow water out of their blow hole?
