Animal Planet - Smilodon
Saber-Tooth Tigers had almost comically copious bites: these felines could open their jaws at a snake-worthy angle of 120 degrees, or about twice as wide as a modern lion (or a yawning house cat). Paradoxically, though, the various species of Smilodon didn't chomp down on their prey with much force, because they needed to protect their precious canines against accidental breakage!
