How do crocodiles protect themselves?
Crocodiles can use their tails for protection, but their main form of defence is to bite attackers with their powerful jaws, equipped with sharp teeth to penetrate and hold on. Research indicates that crocodiles have a bite comparable to the low end of the power that T Rex was estimated to have. As crocodiles are apex predators, at the top of their food chain, they have minimal need to protect themselves from other predators.

How powerful is a Tyrannosaurus Rex jaw?
Tyrannosaurus rex is believed to have had one of the most powerful bite forces of any animal to ever exist. Estimates found its bite force to range between 35,000 and 57,000 newtons. That is three to three and a half times greater than the bite force of sharks and crocodiles, and way more than that of lions. It is enough bite force to break a Triceratops's horn!
