• prey
  • The oral jaws are used to capture and manipulate prey by biting and crushing. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Tasmanian devil's large head and neck allow it to generate among the strongest bites per unit body mass of any extant mammal land predator, and it hunts prey and scavenges carrion as well as eating household products if humans are living nearby. (wikipedia.org)
  • It then launches its attack, executing a killing bite to the base of the skull or top of the neck, depending on the size of the prey. (wikipedia.org)
  • The quoll will pin small prey down with its fore paws and then deliver the bite. (wikipedia.org)
  • With large prey, it jumps and latches on its back and bites the neck. (wikipedia.org)
  • Champsosaurus is estimated to have a bite force around 1194 to 1910 N, as opposed to the modern gharial's 310-497 N. In spite of this, most are thought to have had a diet similar to that of modern gharials due to the long and slender jaws, though Simoedosaurus has a more robust and shorter snout and could have fed on larger prey.

(wikipedia.org)
  • Animal bites often result in serious infections and mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • He notes that the biggest living crocodiles currently hold the world record for measured bite forces, which his team found were about 3,700 pounds. (wuwm.com)

  • Consider the patient who has a chronic popcorn habit - even though their bite force alone might not be perceived as excessive, when you combine this with their habit of continually crunching on any hard un-popped kernels, it might be sufficient to cause untold damage. (mimetikoss.com)
  • Again, they mightn't have an overly-excessive bite force, but add this to their likening for hard fingernails and it may be sufficient enough to eventually cause an implant to fail. (mimetikoss.com)
