Theropod jaw biomechanics with Manabu Sakamoto

We are still going! We are back and like last series, we’re taking a bit of a different tack to the previous ones and here we are having experts on every episode in a desperate attempt to make up for Dave’s quite profound lack of knowledge in numerous areas of dinosaur biology. With that in mind, we start off with Manabu Sakamoto who works primarily on the biomechanics of theropods jaws – what they could and couldn’t bite and how hard and what this means. This is obviously of huge importance for figuring out their general biology, behaviour and diet and so it’s great to get some real insight into this area of their lives.
