Lions are grippers and bite their struggling prey hard to bring them down. Tasmanian devils, the grey wolf and tiger sharks are also grippers, along with the spotted hyena. Slicers are animals that have teeth like knives. Snapping turtles, the great white shark, piranha, komodo dragons and even squid, who when they hunt their beak shreds fish and their rough tongues are covered in sharp teeth almost puree their prey. Crushers, like the grizzly bear, grind and pulverize their prey. The African elephant has upper incisors or tusks that are enormous teeth that grow at a rate of 7 inches per year. Reindeer, Gila monsters, humans and macaws fit into this category. Guplers are animals that suck in their food and swallow it whole. The American bull frog, nurse shark and the python fit into this category.
