Bull sharks 'have strongest bite out of all species

Relative to their body size, bull sharks bite harder than other, larger predatory sharks. 

A study of their jaws and jaw muscles has shown that adult bull sharks can bite with a maximum force equivalent to 6,000N. 

Maria Habegger of the University of South Florida in Tampa, US and colleagues in the US and Germany examined bite forces produced by 13 species of shark and their close relatives.
