how prehistoric creatures ruled with teeth
We have just been sent an interesting infographic looking at, perhaps bizarrely, dinosaur teeth.

At first it raised our eyebrows. After all, it’s something of a strange topic to write about. Then, it quickly became clear that these beasts were like no other when it came to their mouth – and just aren’t comparable to anything in the world.

In actual fact, it’s not just dinosaurs which are featured. The infographic, designed by Main Street Miles, also features various other prehistoric animals (many of which we had never heard of).

Here are some of the key facts we learned from the infographic:

  • The T-Rex had the largest bite force of any other dinosaur, with this being 12,800 pounds. What does this equate to? 13 grand pianos!
  • However, the C. Megalodon puts the T-Rex to shame. This create had a bite force of 41,000 – which is a hell of a lot more pianos!
  • We also found out that all dinosaurs could regrow teeth, some faster than others. Some could replace teeth at the relatively slow rate of one per two years, while others were more like one per month. Regardless, it’s a lot more than humans!
  • Most dinosaurs had five layers of tissue. To put this into context, crocodiles have just two layers.
  • Some dinosaur teeth were as large as 12″. We don’t need to compare this to the size of a human’s!

Unsurprisingly, there are a whole host of other interesting revelations that the infographic covers. Quite often, dinosaurs get their reputation for their history and destructive nature. Well, while some of the above might fall into the latter category, we thought it shined a little more light on some lesser-known areas of their body.
