World Wild Life states that jaguars have an extremely powerful bite, their teeth are estimated to be so strong that can cause serious damage to aquatic animals that have thick hides including crocodiles and turtles. It also enables them to take on prey three to four times their size by accurately damaging their opponent’s skulls rather than biting the neck like other big cats.
