A Hound's Tooth is a resource that is obtained by killing Hounds, Red Hounds, and Blue Hounds. Hound Mounds, once destroyed, will also drop three Hounds' Teeth. This item can be used to craft a Dapper Vest, Blow DartSewing Kit, and Tooth Trap.

Aside from waiting for periodic Hound attacks, the only way to acquire Hounds' Teeth is by visiting a Walrus Camp (in Winter) or a Hound Mound and fighting the Hounds and Blue Hounds that spawn. This can be extremely dangerous and should not be attempted unless adequately prepared.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Hound's Teeth can sometimes also be obtained by destroying Tumbleweed and hammering Bones. Another method to get Hound's Teeth is to track and kill a Varg. The player can find a Varg by tracking down a Koalefant. However, tracking a Varg can be difficult as there is only a 5% chance on day 1, which increases over time to 33% chance on day 100. 

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Crocodogs and Sea Hounds also have a chance to drop Hound's Teeth. Crocodogs replace Hounds during periodic attacks, they will follow the player both on land and on the Ocean. Sea Hound attacks can be triggered when Meat or Fish items are dropped on the water. They can also spawn after Fishing in a Shoal.

In the Hamlet DLC, Hound's Teeth can be bought for 5 Oincs each at 'The Sty' Oddities Emporium in the Pig City. They also have a chance to drop from Hammered Smashing Pots.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • A player can farm Hound's Teeth by trapping a Varg in a walled enclosure (ideally Stone Walls, since Red Hounds cannot set them on fire). It will attract endless Hounds, which can be dispatched with a nearby array of Tooth Traps. The Hounds will be attracted by Monster Meat. Lure one into the traps using yourself as bait and it will drop Monster Meat, baiting the rest of the Hounds into the traps as well. The dropped Hound's Teeth can be used to replenish the Tooth Traps, making the farm largely self-sufficient. It's recommended to only farm for Hound's Teeth in Winter and Spring, as Blue Hounds are guaranteed to drop two Hound's Teeth, whereas a Red Hound will only drop one.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • According to Wickerbottom, Hound's Teeth contain brimstone, also known as sulfur. In folklore, sulfur is often associated with demons, implying that the in-game Hounds are Hellhounds.
