Beardie bite force

I’ve seen them slice cleanly through chicken and various veggies. Of course for reference, I can pry open my Maltese Yorkie mix’s mouth open easily but a 400g lizard is near impossible to do.
This is something I think about every morning.
How strong is the force behind a beardie’s bite? How painful is it compared to that of a dog’s bite. I do want to clarify that the two times Kazoku has bit me were either from when he was tiny or he was in food mode over a foxtail plant.
I don’t need sleep, I need answers.

It depends how hard they bite. I've been bitten multiple times but only by a baby which it did hurt but not a lot. I've also been bitten by an adult once and that hurt more then my baby but I would say to me it hurts a tiny but hardly any difference between a dog bite and a beardie bite so I would say they're about the same except beardie with hardly any different more painful then a dog bite

I mean I am aware that baby beardie bites barely hurt, although what I’m focusing on is the sheer muscle adults beardies have to their jaws compared to a dog’s jaws.
Have you seen how many sharp teeth beardies have? It haunts me on how painful they would be on human skin.

Hmmm. I haven't. It is hard to tell because they have such small teeth. I know that they have a lot but some of the teeth can be a little duller than the others

They're jaw is really strong. It is hard to even pry open their mouth. If they bit your finger, then their jaw can hurt a lot by th force of the jaw

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
