    their teeth continuously grow and replace

    Doesn't it have to be corrected to "are replaced"? Can "replace" be an intransitive verb?

    shark)One of the great features is the shark's teeth, which are very hard and strong. With such teeth, sharks never let prey go once they get a hold of them. And their teeth continuously grow and replace during the shark's lives.
