Which has the stronger bite; an alligator or a crocodile?


There have been a number of studies on this, and there is no total agreement. Part of the problem is that there are different ways to measure bite strength.

The bigger crocodile species will therefore tend to have stronger bites than alligators, but it depends on the relative sizes of the actual animals being compared.
