Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The four canines, or fangs, of a domestic cat. (The largest two teeth of the top and bottom rows of teeth.)

A fang is a long, pointed tooth. In mammals, a fang is a canine tooth, used for biting and tearing flesh. In snakes, it is a poison-injecting tooth (see snake venom). Spiders also have fangs, which are part of the chelicerae. Fantasy creatures such as dragons and vampires have fangs as well.


Fangs are most common in carnivores or omnivores, but some herbivores, such as fruit bats, carry them as well. They are generally used to hold or swiftly kill prey, such as in large cats.

Omnivorous animals, such as bears, use their fangs when hunting fish or other prey, but they are not needed for consuming fruit. Apes also have fangs, which they use for threats and fighting. However, humans do not have fangs.

You can take the local bus from Chang Puak bus station in northern Chiang Mai. Fang is 152km from Chiang Mai and it takes about 3 hours to get there by local bus. A ticket costs 80 Baht. Halfway the bus stops for a leak and a snack.
