Teat vs. Teet

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Teat and Teet is that the Teat is the projection of a mammary gland in female mammals from which milk is secreted and Teet is an Estonian masculine given name.

  • Teat

    A teat is the projection from the udder or mammary glands of mammals from which milk flows or is ejected for the purpose of feeding young. In many mammals the teat projects from the udder. The number of teats vary by mammalian species and often corresponds to the size of an average litter for that animal. In some cases, milk is removed from the teat of a female animal for the purpose of human consumption.

    The quality of some domesticated animals is determined by the establishment of desired characteristics, such as teat size and placement.
