    no, i set him where i think he came from. he was sitting near a storm drain(i think thats what it was) and im guessing he crawled to another part of town in there, i live about 4 miles from a lake so hopefully he made it back down there. he was too nasty to keep and i wouldnt have an aqaurium big enough for him. they say some turtles and tortises can live for a couple of hundred years so he was probably pretty old.

    The fact is there is no scientific evidence whatsoever to support bite pressure. There is way too many technical reasons why there isn't any published scientific reports in regards to breed biting PSI. For starters, a dog canNOT be instructed to bite down on whatever at the full capacity of his/her bite. The various sizes of the breeds, what you use as a drive to get the breed to bite, the breeds age, health, and so forth are all logical reasons as to why their is NO published scientific reports. Not to mention, to claim "the highest bite PSI" you would have to test ALL Breeds.

    Biomechanics can model a skull and calculate biteforce based on the size of muscles used to close the jaw and so forth. This is probably as close as anyone could get to accurately predicting the force of a bite. There are MAJOR flaws even with this but I can't see any more impartial way to measure it. Any dog only gets the one set of adult teeth and I have seen it suggested that this is part of the reason they can't bite as hard as the likes of a crocodile shich will replace teeth when they break.

    We caught a logger head snapper on a trot line back in the seventies that was a 100 lbs. His head measured 6 in across. Very very rare to see one even close to that size anymore. They're now protected in Ark.
