There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I really hope that if you keep posting stuff like this, that moderators will ban you..

What?? 

I simply put scientifically measured data (FACTS) here not my personal opinion.

9.African Lion   

PSI: 691 

15.Bengal Tiger 

PSI: 1,050

I said many times Jaguar and Leopard are equal/same but many have problem with that too...

That's not the problem. Data can be countered.

The problem is this:

The attitude. 

Sometimes I think you want to discuss things, others that you're intentionally trolling everyone. 

And I'm leaning towards the latter because you don't seem to listen to the warnings the mods give to you.

You want to post facts? Do it. But leave the sarcasm aside, because it creates problems and when others respond in kind you won't like it, and I'll remember who started it initially.

About #59:

the deinonychus bite force:

The dromaeosaurid bite force (titled paragraphs "bite me (redux)":

https://qilong.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/...ial-hawks/

About the theropods:

As concerns the deinonychus, I think a 8200N bite force is clearly exaggerated. Especially when we consider the skull structure

I would agree with your last statement too. Considering Deinonychus's thin and not-so-muscled skull, the bite estimates should be much lower.

About #52: with the detailed link you downloaded, here are the big cats' bite forces.

By decreasing order:

1) Tiger                   1234,3 N
2) Lion                    1198,6 N
3)Jaguar                   879.5 N
4)Leopard                 558,6 N
5) Puma                   499,6 N
6) Snow leopard        363 N
7) Clouded leopard     344,2N
I am sure that Jaguars bite much harder than what you see ranked here  because they are the only Big Cats that destroy the Skulls of the biggest  prey and destroy carapaces of even the Biggest Sea Turtles.

Jaguar's jaw muscles used to generate power a long with their skulls are much smaller which means they aren't able to generate the same power as the big boys, but they do have the highest lb for lb bite force of any big cat.

"Relative to weight, it’s the jaguar. Recent research by Adam Hartstone-Rose and colleagues at the University of South Carolina, who compared the bite forces of nine different cat species, reveals that jaguars have three-quarters the bite force of tigers.
However, given that jaguars are considerably smaller (the body mass of the individual in the study was only half that of the tiger), relatively speaking their bite is stronger.
“If you had to choose, you’d want to be bitten by a jaguar, not a lion or a tiger. But pound for pound, jaguars pack a stronger punch,” says Adam. “The strength of the jaguar’s bite is due to the arrangement of its jaw muscles, which, relative to weight, are slightly stronger than those of other cats. In addition – also relative to weight – its jaws are slightly shorter, which increases the leverage for biting.”

It would be great to see measurements of bite force of the biggest Jaguars from Pantanal in Brazil and from the Venezuelan Llanos.

Absolutely, I'd also love to see skulls from Tigers in Kanha and Kaziranga measured and Lions from Ngorongoro as well.

As per the study the bite force of the tiger involves several subspecies.
If we were to consider only the bigger subspecies Bengals and Siberians.
I would presume the biteforce results would be higher.

Where does this come from? I remember seing this on a random website that didn't have anything scientific. Regardless is psi even a good measurement for that? It's a measure of pressure, force is measured in newton.

When i went to kaziranga, one of the guards of the hotels there told me that once a single horned rhino attacked a forest guard. He bite the forest guard in such a way that his skull was broken and the blood oozed out as if the skin has been blasted and the blood oozed with speed. One must only imagine the bite force of one horned rhino which if measured i think surely will be one among the top 5 IMO.
