I saw this documentary where some crazy guy was getting various animals to bite on this 'bite strength censor.' The alligator snapper had about 1000 lbs/sq inch (I think) of pressure in its bite. More than a great white shark, lion, and a bunch of other scary things. I think only a crocodile had a higher number.

I'm from Australia, if you believe that to have any relevance, I had no idea the Crocodile was so powerful.

I don't know why people are stupid enough in the first place to buy these animals and once they are bigger then they once where. They decide to throw them away? That's cruel and stupid! Why not get a cat or something?
