So? It's not like it has to be living. Anyways, it is NOT T. Rex. Its either Predator X or Carcharocles/Carcharodon Megalodon.

To be honest, the largest bite should belong to the largest predators today, the killer whale and sperm whale. On average, a killer whales skull is much larher then any croc species; sperm whales on the other hand are just plan out big, although the jaw isn't super impressive, its sure size means its probably greater. Although these two animals bites haven't been measured, they are probably stronger.

I'm not so sure. I would have to say, Carcharocles probably had the largest bite force of any animal. Although, if this thread was meant to be happening with living animals, I have to agree with Mattking.

The killer whale is a strong possibility. However, for the sperm whale, im not so sure. if you think about it, sperm whales hunt invertebrates like squid and octopus rather than bony fish, so their jaw power has no need to be super-strong to break bone or anything.

Yes, however, they are so big that even if they are pound for pound very weak, their massive size may make up for it. Regardless, its either the killer whale or Sperm whale because they are the biggest carnivores today by far.

The aquatic animals have a disadvantage,it's something called WATER RESISTANCE,it reduce the bite force by a significant amount especially those with a wide jaws like the sperm whale.
