Re: Alligator Bite Study



Yes, this study has been reported before. And you'll doubtless see it again
when the work is published! Also reported last year were Greg Erickson's
results testing a nearly 16 foot long saltwater crocodile. That yielded
around 3,900 pounds of force, so it's all a matter of scale. One day someone
will measure a 20 footer. Still, relative to its size, the gator has the
strongest bite.
