Salamander Rocket Mouth

The Chinese Giant Salamander really sucks. No, this is not a disparaging term. It is quite literal. This kind of salamander has incredible suction abilities, as seen in this slow-motion video:


Their suction abilities are almost as powerful as rocket cars, but last only a fraction of a second.

Other creatures use suction-feeding techniques, but the Giant Salamander is constructed differently. As expected, evolutionists spin some fanciful tales to force-fit their philosophies into the observed facts — these "explanations" raise more questions than they purport to answer.

Some rocket cars can accelerate at 5 g-forces. For comparison, respectable acceleration for a sports car amounts to half a "g," and people faint when accelerating at 5g's. But long before the rocket car was invented, fish were accelerating just as forcefully into the mouths of giant salamanders. How did these thin-skinned amphibians acquire rocket-force mouthparts? 
A team of researchers from Austria investigated the biomechanics of suction feeding and measured the maximum acceleration of a fish as it traveled into a Chinese Giant Salamander's mouth. These river monsters, including the species Andrias davidianus, can exceed five feet in length. Their numbers are steadily declining, so we better study them now since future generations might not get the chance. 
The Journal of the Royal Society Interface published the new results. Moving their fast food at 40-50 m/s2, or between 4 and 5g's, these salamander's suckers impress.
