Caption: Cat skull. X-ray of the skull of a domestic cat (Felis catus) seen from the side. The front of the skull is at right. The cat is a carnivore (a meat eater), and the arrangement of its teeth reflect its diet. It possesses long, pointed canines at the front corners of its jaws, which it uses for catching, killing and removing meat from its small prey. The back teeth on the upper and the lower jaw have been modified into carnassials. These give a shearing action used for chewing flesh from bones.
