Watch out T Rex…

Researchers used supercomputers in a new study to see who had the toughest bite…the winner?


the finch! By examining bite force and body mass, researchers found that if finches were the same size as a T Rex, their bite would be 320 times stronger than the ancient dinosaur’s bite. In fact, finches evolved amazing bite strength given their small body size.
