... ). Fracture of mollusk shells, a common method of durophagy, has been studied primarily in terms of the slow crushing forces of jaws and claws and through the use of materials-testing machines (e.g. Blundon and Vermeij, 1983 ; Buschbaum et al., 2007 ; Fisher, 2010 ; Kolmann et al., 2015 ; Preston et al...

... a durophagous raptorial biting mode characterized by large gapes, large gape angles and lack of lateral gape occlusion. The shorter skulls and mandibles of sea otters, along with increased mechanical advantages of the masseter and increased bite force, form a repertoire of functional traits for durophagy. Here...
