Navy SEAL Dogs Have TITANIUM FANGS (Updated)

Illustration for article titled Navy SEAL Dogs Have TITANIUM FANGS (Updated)

Navy SEAL dogs are badasses, yes. But did you know some of them have titanium fangs, designed to rip through enemy protective armor?

That titanium grill runs $2,000 per tooth. The end result, US military dog trainer Alex Dunbar tells The Daily, is that being bitten is "like being stabbed four times at once with a bone crusher." Hard. Core.


Update: All is not what it seems! Danger Room counters The Daily, speaking Jeff Franklin of Cobra Canine.

"They're not as stable as a regular tooth would be, and they're much more likely to come out" during a biting.

The only reason to have titanium teeth? Medical reasons, he says, like "if a dog breaks a tooth… it's the same as a crown for a human."

Um, how about lasers, then? [The Daily via Peter Hahaha]
