Skeletal snouts and toothy grins adorn window ledges and tables all donated specimens that are scrutinized by researchers and students alike. Lately, Erickson, a Florida State biology professor, and his colleagues have been pondering a particularly painful-sounding question: How hard do alligators and crocodiles bite? The answer is a bite force value of 3,700 pounds for a 17-foot saltwater crocodile (as well as tooth pressures of 350,000 pounds per square inch). Thats the highest bite force ever recorded beating a 2,980-pound value for a 13-foot wild American alligator Ericksons lab measured in 2005. They estimate that the largest extinct crocodilians, 35to 40-foot animals, bit at forces as high as 23,100 pounds. Erickson, along with several colleagues, including Florida State biology professors Scott Steppan and Brian Inouye, and graduate student Paul Gignac, reported Funded by the National Geographic Society and the FSU College of Arts and Sciences, their study looks at the bite force and tooth pressure of every single species of crocodilian. It took more than a decade to complete and required a wily team of croc handlers and statisticians, as well as an army of undergraduate and graduate students. Erickson describes crocodilian bite-force testing as being a bit like dragon slaying by committee. As a result of the study, Erickson and his team have a new understanding on how these animals became so successful and a better understanding about the remarkable biology of living crocodiles and alligators. Theyve also developed new methods for testing bite forces. The data contributes to analyzing per formance in animals from the past and provides unprecedented insights on evolution and statistically informed models about other reptiles such as dinosaurs. that Ericksons team has been contacted by editors at the Guinness Book of World Records inquiring about the data. took place in both the United States and Australia, Erickson and his team roped 83 adult alligators and crocodiles, strapped them down, placed a bite-force device between their back teeth and recorded the bite force. An engineering calculation was then used to estimate the force generated simultaneously by the teeth nearest the teeth with dentists dental putty, made casts As Erickson describes it: I have to into the maw of an adult crocodile, I was nervous. It was all over in the blink of an eye. When it struck, it nearly wrested my coming together was like a gunshot. The power of the animal was astounding, and the violence of the event frightening. dilians both mundane and exotic, from American alligators to 17-foot Australian saltwater crocodiles and the Indian gharial. Among the worlds most successful predatory reptiles, these creatures have been guardians of the water-land interface for over 85 million years, Erickson said. and dominate ecological niches for so long is a mystery.Erickson and his team knew that the reptiles evolved into different sizes, from 3-footers to 40-footers, and they form remained largely unchanged. We set out to answer how this anatomical variance related to their ability to gener ate bite force and pressures for feeding in the different forms and thus how they have been so successful, Erickson said. The bite force over the contact area is the pressure, which is more pertinent to feeding performance than bite force. Ultimately, those prodigious bite forces. And, he added, gators and crocs have comparable maximal bite-force capacity when measured pound for pound. They basically all have the same musculoskeletal It is analogous to putting different attachments on a weed eater grass cutter, brush cutter, tree trimmer, they all have the same type of engine, Erickson said. There are bigger and smaller engines, with higher and lower horsepower, but they have the same attachments. His research team is already using the studys data to explore bite-force and toothpressure performance in fossil forms. The team is building the worlds most sophisticated models for extinct crocodiles and croc snout form. As for modern-day crocs and gators, well, theres little doubt that they are truly the worlds bone-crushing champions. Just remember that old Floridian maxim: Always maintain a healthy distance between yourself and the nearest gator. If you can bench-press a pickup truck, son warned. It is a one-way street between the teeth and stomach of a large croc. RESEARCH

Well-informed, courteous beachgoers can provide needed relief to these stressed species. The snowy plover, for example, nests along Gulf Coast beaches through August, and its population has shrunk to as few as 200 pairs in this state. Increased human activity and devel opment on coastal barrier island beaches are among the key reasons that Snowy Plovers and other beachnesting species are listed as threatened or endangered. Shorebird nesting contin ues through August. By recognizing the warning signs that you have entered an area of beach where shorebird nesting is taking place, you can save chicks and eggs from a needless death, said Nancy Douglass, who works on shorebird conser vation at the FWC. Nancy added, If you notice birds suddenly stand up, become approach, you are likely entering a nesting site. Above the high-tide mark, snowy plovers and other species, such as Wilsons Plovers and Least Terns, lay well-camouflaged eggs in shallow depressions on the sand. This behavior makes the eggs nearly invisible to predators. Unfortunately, makes these eggs nearly invisible to the untrained human eye. Further complicating the issue of shorebird conservation: Any disturbance by people, pets or vehicles can cause shorebirds to temporarily or permanently abandon their nests, resulting in the death of young chicks or the destruction of the eggs by predators. Once shorebird parents are frightened from the nest, exposed chicks or eggs can succumb to the heat of the Florida summinutes, and predation by gulls and crows increases are forced to leave, even for a few moments. Here are some simple things you can do to help nesting shorebirds: Because many Florida shorebirds are listed as threatened or endangered, it is a violation of state and federal laws to harass or take any endangered or threatened birds, their eggs or young.

Delicate balance of birds nesting requires beachgoers to be aware
