Navy SEAL dogs' secret weapon: titanium fangs (Updated)

You're already not in a good spot if a Navy SEAL dog is coming after you. But it's worse than you thought: these bad boys have titanium fangs. Good lord.

Yes, for a mere $2,000 per tooth, the most elite fightin' dogs out there have titanium chompers. Designed to rip through protective armor, these things are not messing around. As US military dog trainer Alex Dunbar says, being bitten by these things is "like being stabbed four times at once with a bone crusher." OK, noted. I will try to not allow that to happen.

Update: This sounded too crazy to be true, and it looks like it was. Wired has an article claiming the opposite.
