So far, scientists say that the Thylacoleo carnifex, a marsupial lion that lived in Australia during the Ice Age, had the hardest bite ever. When scientists discovered this, they also found out the animals with bigger brains have a weaker bite. So it is rather clear this fierce biting mammal wasn't very bright. It has been extinct about 40,000 years, so you won't have to worry about having them roaming around your neighborhood.

Alligators have the strongest bites of currently living animals. The second strongest bite is owned by alligator snapping turtles and common snapping turtles.

Scientists are also saying that the great white shark has the strongest bite force so of today's living animals, it seems to be a toss up between the great white shark and the alligator.

a hippopotamus could crush a big watermelon in just one bite BUT a crocodile have the record of the strongest bite force By contrast, you might tear into a steak with 150 to 200 psi(890 newtons). Hyenas, lions, and tigers generate

around 1,000 psi(4,450 newtons).

And while a 2008 computer model estimated that a 21-foot (6.5-meter) great white shark would produce nearly

4,000 psi(17,790 newtons) of bite force, that figure hasn't been directly measured.

Crocodiles may be the world's champion chompers, killing with the greatest

bite force ever directly measured for living animals, a new study says. In fact,

their bite forces may rival that of mighty T rex.

With a bite force of 5000 lbs per square inch, the crocodile has the strongest bite among all animals living right now. This bite is enough to lift a small truck.

The greatest bite ever measured was from a crocodile.I myself think that a killer whale due to its size would have a huge bite force but as far as i it has not been tested.

aprox. 400-500 pounds. The English Mastiff holds the record of the strongest bite force (500 pounds) for dogs. They measure bite force from the size of their head and English Mastiffs and Saint Bernards have just about the same size head, therefore they basically have the same bite force.
