Lots of stories about things with teeth (and other toothy problems)

Hey folks, it's Monday again and I'm posting this after a full weekend of trying to put the finishing touches on several new features that will appear over the coming months. It's been a busy time, but a great one, as I'm uncovered some really interesting stuff that I can't wait for you to read.

Until then, though, I'm still keeping up with the news articles. Here are four new ones -- two for TakePart and two for Scientific American. These all, in one way or another, have something to do with teeth. Elephant tusks are really just big teeth. Grizzlies and sharks are known (and feared) for their teeth. And people eat a lot of illegally killed birds, so that's a toothy problem. Anyway, here are the links:

Hawaii Revealed as Major Market for Illicit Ivory

25 Million Birds Are Illegally Killed in the Mediterranean Every Year

Should Yellowstone Grizzlies Lose Their Protected Status?

A 10-Year Strategy to Save Sharks and Rays

Well, that's it for this week. I wonder what body part will dominate in next week's articles? Come on back here next Monday to find out, or follow me on Twitter for links as they happen.
