Native Americans once used clubs made from elk, bear, buffalo or horse jawbones as weapons.

The quijada or charrasgais is a traditional percussion instrument made from the jawbone of either a mule, horse, or donkey. Popular in Latin America, it is played by hitting one half, making the teeth rattle against the bone.

The lower jawbone or mandible is the strongest bone in the human skull.

Your jaw is strong enough to break all of your teeth – But, the brain stops that from happening.

A blue whale’s jawbone may be 80 feet long.

Trap-jaw ants, carnivorous ants that live in Central and South America, can snap their jaws closed at speeds of up to 145 miles per hour.
