Take the panda, for instance, it has canines but it's an herbivore. However, are there are other aspects of its teeth where one could still tell that it's an herbivore? Do the teeth always relay the information about whether an animal is a carnivore, omnivore, or herbivore?

    $\begingroup$ @tyersome I didn't actually answer the question, there may be other aspects to a panda's teeth that tell what its diet is, rather than just are there big canines or not. That was just an example where maybe more investigation is needed, or maybe one couldn't tell just by the teeth, I don't know, hence the question. $\endgroup$
