Why do animals bite each other?

Introduction: The Nature of Animal Bites

Animal bites are a common occurrence in the animal kingdom, and they occur for various reasons. While some bites are harmless, others can be fatal. Understanding the reasons behind animal bites is crucial in preventing them from happening and reducing the risk of injury or death.

Biting is a natural behavior among animals, and it is an essential tool for survival, communication, and socialization. Animals use their teeth and jaws to defend themselves, establish dominance, hunt prey, and protect their territory. However, not all animal bites are aggressive or dangerous. Some animals bite during play, while others bite when in pain or hungry.
