Saltwater Crocodiles have the strongest bite force ever recorded, exerting pressures of over 3,700 pounds per square inch (psi).

Similar to the saltwater crocodile, Nile crocodiles possess incredibly powerful jaws, with bite forces exceeding 5,000 psi.

African Lions are formidable predators with a bite force of around 650 psi, enabling them to take down large prey like buffalo and giraffes.

With a bite force of around 1,200 psi, grizzly bears can easily crush bones and tear through tough hides.

Despite their relatively smaller size, hyenas have a bite force of about 1,100 psi, allowing them to consume bones and carcasses efficiently.

Hippos may seem docile, but they possess a powerful bite force of around 1,800 psi, making them one of Africa's most dangerous animals.

American Alligators have a bite force of around 2,980 psi, making them formidable predators in their habitats.
