Massive saltwater crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus) are no jokes when it comes to jaw power. Their bite force has been confirmed at 3,700 pounds per square inch. You might think of tigers and lions as being equally formidable predators, but their bite forces are significantly less impressive — think roughly 1,000 psi. Bite force in humans usually tops out at about 200 psi. Saltwater crocodiles not only have the most powerful bites in the crocodile world, they’re also the biggest of them all. In comparison, American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) have a bite force of 2,980 psi — still less than saltwater crocs.
