    It is important to keep up to date with new discoveries as possible and how it was done. Science and so called specialists do sometimes irrational things. For example the 600 spi gave to the lion was done in 2005 on a young lion and the measurements on the tiger on a adult tiger. Was that fair? Now in 2012 The National Geographic redone the experiment this time on a adult lion and it was similar to the tiger. It is very hard to have a good idea of the lion's bite force. Science found out that the lion only use the bite force necessary. So the lion bite force could be more. The lion could have greater bite force capacity for another reason, his canines was measured 250 spi stronger than the tiger's.
