Many people today believe that women have fewer teeth than men, a theory most famously promoted by Aristotle in his 350 B.C. classic History of Animals, where he stated that “Males have more teeth than females in the case of men, sheep, goats, and swine.” Recent scientific research tells us, and the Happiness Pony editorial team can confirm, that men and women usually have the same number of teeth, 32. Other Aristotelian theories of women, such that they have a poor disposition, and are mis-shapen, also remain strangely popular.
