Crocodiles Bite Hardest


'That's not a bite, mate': Australian saltwater crocodiles have world's most ferocious jaws - snapping shut with two-ton force that makes Great Whites look toothless | Mail Online:

"Saltwater crocodiles have the strongest bite of any living animal - beating Great White sharks.


The huge reptiles, which can measure more than 20ft, have jaws that snap shut with a force of 3,700lb, or almost two tons.


In comparison, the great white shark has a chomping capacity of 2,095lb at the tip of its jaws.


The spotted hyena has the highest recorded bite force in a mammalian carnivore, at just over 1,000lb."

  1. I read about this yesterday; apparently, a saltwater croc's bite reaches the lower estimates for a T-Rex's bite force, which is pretty damn impressive if we consider T-Rex was six to nine times larger than the largest salties recorded!
