Which animal has the most powerful bite, do you know? Bite force is the force that is applied when our teeth and jaws come together to chew our meal. The alignment of a person's teeth, their age, and their gender are all variables that affect how hard they bite. Our jaws have become highly effective over the course of evolution; in fact, if our heads were scaled to the same size, human jaws would be more powerful and effective than monkeys'! The typical human bite force ranges from 120 to 160 PSI (pounds per square inch).

However, this is nothing compared to many wild animals, who frequently use their teeth for gripping and tearing in addition to chewing. Since gathering "concrete data about an animal's biting power can plainly be rather risky, it is difficult to determine the precise bite force of wild animals. To make accurate estimates of animal biting forces, researchers use a range of techniques include direct measurement and computer simulation. Let's look at some of the most prominent and harmful animal attacks from today!


Although domestic dogs exist in a wide variety of sizes and forms, it seems sensible to put them on our list as we have all been cautioned to beware of a dog's bite. Any veterinarian will tell you that any dog bite is potentially harmful due to the animal's sharp teeth and risk of infection. Give dogs the respect and consideration they deserve, including when it comes to their teeth! The biting force of a domestic dog can range from less than 75 PSI (think of little and teacup breeds) to more than 700 PSI.


The average bite force of wolves, from whom all domestic dogs descended, is 406 PSI. A wolf's biting force can reach over 1000 PSI when it is in full assault mode, according to some researchers.


Spotted hyenas have a terrifying 1100 PSI bite force.

With a bite force of 1200 PSI, polar bears have the strongest bite force of any bear. With a bite force of around 1160 PSI, the Grizzly Bear comes in second place.


The sole non-carnivore on this list is the gorilla, which primarily consumes plants. nevertheless has a 1300 PSI bite force, which is extremely powerful. Their big teeth are employed to show ferocity and anger, and their strong jaws are utilized to gnaw and rip through bark and roots.


Bull sharks have the strongest bite forces of all sharks, with an estimated maximum bite force of 1300 PSI. Contrary to common perception, the Great White Shark's jaws are not the strongest in the shark kingdom; its estimated bite force is 625 PSI.

Of all the great cats, jaguars have the strongest bite, with a 1500 PSI force.


The domesticated house cat, a cousin of jaguars, has a relatively weak bite force of only approximately 70 PSI. However, a cat's needle-sharp teeth, severe puncture wounds, and unpredictable nature still make their bites highly deadly, as any cat owner, groomer, or vet can tell you!


With a bite force of roughly 1820 PSI, the hippopotamus possesses the strongest jaws of any land animal.


The bite force of American alligators is around 2125 PSI.

The Crocodile, notably the Nile Crocodile (estimated 400–5000 PSI) and the Saltwater Crocodile (the highest documented “live” bite of 3700 PSI), has the largest known bite force of any animal in the animal kingdom.
