Sort of. Crocs kill their prey by biting down on it with immense force and then ripping off chunks of flesh (for all the grisly details, click here). To allow the croc to kill in this way, the muscles that snap the jaws shut must be really powerful – the croc's bite force ranks tops in the animal kingdom. But the muscles that do the opening are much, much weaker, making it possible to immobilize the jaws fairly easily. Of course, we’re not talking about using your regular stationery-style rubber band. You need something a little sturdier than that to avoid losing a limb or two. When they’re handling crocs on a film shoot, our crews prefer to tape the jaws shut with electrical (or insulating) tape.
