Scientists say that the Dunkleosteus Terrelli may have one the most powerful bites of any animal. Having lived 400 million years ago, it grew up to 33 feet long and weighed up to four tons!
New research published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters reveals that the force of this predator’s bite was remarkably powerful: 11,000 pounds. The bladed dentition focused the bite force into a small area, the fang tip, at an incredible force of 80,000 pounds per square inch!
Even more surprising is the fact that this fish could also open its mouth very quickly–in just one fiftieth of a second–which created a strong suction force, pulling fast prey into its mouth.
