Bill,
I was comparing the incidents.

I think a dwarf can give someone a nasty bite, no doubt !! loose some fingers, receive some stitches, etc .. (I thought I said that at the end of my post)

I dont think a dwarf at 4ft can do as much damage as say a 4ft common caiman, but 4 sure both can do some serious damage as can any species of crocodilian.

Donny

:Just out of curiosity, are you making that assumption based on that incident? If so, I'm not saying you are wrong, but I do think you need a more controlled set of experiments to support your statement. Personally, I think you were lucky with the dwarf bite. I have seen spec. caimans rip into things (such as a glove) with the intent of causing as much injury as possible - witnessed by holding on and violently shaking back and forth before releasing. I wouldn't want my hand in there!

:Bill
