What did the tiger's prey say when it was bitten by the golden tooth?
Take my Ag!
Heh, this is the interjection for pain in my language. My ancestors really had some wealthy enemies.
Take the only award I had to give.
Best comment of the day, at Dad joke level. You deserve all the Ag and Au.
It done got bit-sn
My man. 👉🏽👉🏽
He’s never going to financially recover from this
Poor tiger. A gold tooth but at what cost?! No home?
Now he has to work hard at the zoo to pay the dept
Why does it have to be gold over any other metal?
Thith hath to be mike tythuns tiger.
I bet Joe Exotic did it
It was that bitch Carol Baskin
Not Carol fucking Baskin
I scrolled down to make a Mike Tyson comment but nothing would compare to yours. 🤣
Imagine getting that phone call that you're replacing a tigers tooth
Free dental...must be nice
Bet he's got a 401k as well the lucky bastard
I thought tigers don’t like carrots
Gold is considered a soft metal, why wouldn’t they use like titanium or steel?
It melts at a lower temp, likely that this a cap and not a total replacement. Otherwise they’d have to install an implant into the jaw bone bc tigers can’t use denture paste.
the melting point is not important here. gold is very malleable and a gold filling will fill a cavity perfectly because of it.
but in this case though it's most likely an implant made of an alloy of gold and titanium which is often used for implants. it may even be pure titanium with a titanium nitride surface which looks goldish and is very durable
24k gold is very soft. Alloys of gold ~10k can be pretty hard-wearing.
Came here to ask exactly this.
wikipedia doesn’t help:
“Their main use in modern times is as a status symbol. […] Gold is suitable for dentistry because it is malleable, nearly immune to corrosion, and closely mimics the hardness of natural teeth, thereby causing no harm to natural teeth during chewing.”
This leaves the question open: why gold?!
Because it is malleable, nearly immune to corrosion, and closely mimics the hardness of natural teeth, thereby causing no harm to natural teeth during chewing....
Lol seriously tho, first time he bit down with a titanium tooth he'd crack another one
Canines don't bear against other teeth like molars do.
👆they ain’t lion
Or end up with a commotion.
At least 1
Is that in metric or imperial?
***UPDATE*** “This tiger was poached for having a gold tooth”
Edit: not a real update^^^^
I’m so sorry I was only kidding, I’ll amend my original comment to avoid future confusion
Yeah I assumed it was likely a joke lol. Really only asked because if I didn't know for sure I'd be sad for the rest of the day.
It's a joke
This tiger’s got better dental insurance than I do.
Sadly, One more reason for that Tiger to be hunted
Pretty sure its in a zoo, it would take a really ballsy poacher to cap this tiger
It's already poached.
Best comment I found here
Now he’s a tiger pimp
Saw this somewhere else, it said the tooth was cracked on a toy
To a cat, everything is a toy.
Like a bosss!
Gonna be the most boss out of all the tigers.
More like terrifying as fuck
This has to be the most drug kingpin thing ever.
That's not a tiger, that's a tig£r
At 1000 killed animals you unlock the golden tooth legendary item.
That tiger is gangsta!
He do be looking good though.
Throw a piercing in that left ear and he'll be able to get in any club he wants.
Oh great, now we're turning big cats into mumble rappers?
Tiger changes name to "Notorious T.I.G."
Lion is king of the jungle
This tiger is the pimp on the plains
A tiger with 24 carrots in his mouth? I thought tigers only eat meat
But why gold? Of all the metals, gold is one of the most malleable. People literally used to bite old gold coins to tell if they were real. This tiger's bite will either bend or break that tooth. They should've just made a steel or titanium tooth then painted it gold. Waste of money and time.
I wonder if the movie "inherent vice" inspired this....
Is this a Taliban America relations history metaphor
Kind of badass but would it wear as well as another metal? Humans yeah but that thing is a beast!
When the tiger has bling, that’s when you know not to mess with it
Pretty big tooth, I wonder how much gold that is....asking for a friend....
Imagine biting your tongue with a teeth like this
30% chance to give a random debuff to target
Do you ever crack a tooth on purpose?
isn't gold a bit soft for a tigers tooth or is it some kind of alloy?
For some godforsaken reason the version of me that read the Warrior cat books was like " FROME HERE ON HE SHALL BE KNOWN AS GOLDEN FANG!"
Golden Fang was born a Sabre-Tooth Tiger until he climbed the social hierarchy thanks to his new dentistry gifting from the sheik.
That's gonna confuse the fuck out of future palaeontologists
This tiger looks like someday it will get itself a pet scarface.
Waste of fucking money. Help some people in need instead.
can someone explain the idea that gold is a good replacement for teeth, since we use teeth to test the softness of gold itself?
Electrify my golden tooth
Hopefully it's something stronger than gold.
Is that really needed
Lucky tiger with gold tooth
Poachers: allow us to introduce ourselves
This tigers teeth are worth more than i own
Gold is a really weak metal, does the tiger go visit a dentist every year ? How's maintenance?
Tiger got drip!
"What's your job mate?"
This was done by one of the best vet dentist in the world, Jens Rhunau, Denmark. Btw he does my cats' teeth as well.
Is this the pet of a Bond villain ?
They say ye old goldtooth still wanders the jungle.
That looks so badass
Better healthcare than most americans
Can't wait for their new rap album
Gangster as fuck. I want it. With a lead.
Holy shit that's metal.
I feel horrible that I thought of Mike Tyson immediately.
we shall name him Tiger Cuz
Gold tooth, gold chain with gold medallion and a track suit and the tiger is off to make collections for the zoo crew….
Because a tiger isn't already gangster enough, how it can Susan you with gold face dagger.
The chances of it getting poached are even higher now
Somebody has read red dragon
Big pimpin in the house

Tiger now belongs in Miami.
Isn’t this that tiger from Kung Fu Panda?
My mom told me never trust a person with a gold tooth
I wonder how the dentist checked the bite after cementing.

*What would the tiger say if it was a redditor?*
"It blew up*
"Thanks for the gold*
What's his/her rap name
Looks cool but what was the accident
Great! You just created a legendary enemy type
This is bloody cool on many levels.
Look at that shining smile

Probably owned by some AE sheik
This is so fucking expensive and wtf why?
Gold is soft metal. Chrome covered steel would be better and much cheaper
Let me guess china?
