That Could Take A Lot of Filling Material!

An elephant's tooth can weigh over six pounds.  A tusk from an adult male elephant, on the other hand, can weigh anywhere from 100 to 175 pounds.  The heaviest tusk ever recorded weighed in at 220 pounds!

Fortunately, because elephants generally stick to their natural diet, tooth decay is not a big problem for them.  Otherwise, that would take a serious amount of composite!
