Gender of les canines.

How do I know canines are feminine? Because the singular ends in ‘e?’

Hi Ted, 

If you are in any doubt you can always check the gender of any word with an online dictionary but interestingly enough,  I think I can safely say that all the names of teeth are feminine probably because the word for 'teeth' is dents which is feminine too.

la molaire, la prémolaire, l'incisive, la canine, la dent de sagesse

Bonne Continuation !

That would be a good hint although words ending in -e are also sometimes masculine.
