Which animals have the strongest bite?
Imagine a great cavernous mouth, edged by hundreds of razor-sharp teeth. Powerful muscles work to rip flesh, crush bone and close the maw with terrific speed. Such terrifying jaws are familiar from monster movies, from Jaws to Godzilla. But back in the real world, which animal has the worst bite of them all? It is not just a matter of having a big mouth. The bowhead whale has the largest mouth of any animal, but it does not use it to bite. To really deliver a powerful bite, an animal needs a big mouth, lots of strong teeth, and powerful muscles.
