Fangs. A primal, menacing structure, eliciting a visceral response. Is the response nature or nurture? Fangs are a weapon and tool of many a carnivore and, surprisingly, a handful of herbivores like fruit bats, the hippopotamus, and various deer. My childhood fascination with fangs can be traced back to Hollywood’s wide spanning depictions of vampires, werewolves, and an array of “psycho” animals. Halloween catapults fangs even further as a pop culture icon with the simple and alluring imagery of two triangle shapes peaking down from a smile.
