Yeah

Maybe, it could because it was a tyrannosaurid

Nah

Small bones? Yes. Large bones? No. It's teeth were not as large, thick or robust as T.rex's, which is necessary for tooth strength in order to crush bone. It's bite force was also lower. Small bones would be no problem but crushing large bones would have given it severe toothache lol

albertosaurus cannot bite through bones because it did not have the bone crushing power and bone crushing spike like teeth in its jaws like tyrannosaurus. its jaws were weak compared to t-rex jaws and it has blade like teeth to tear off flesh not to crush bones because if it try to crush bones it will break its teeth.

I think Albertosaurus could crush only probably small or thin bones. Like i said earlier It didn't have that powerful bite like Tarbosaurus, Tyrannosaurus and Daspletosaurus.

Unfortunately, it couldn't. It's teeth just weren't designed to crush bone. T. Rexes teeth were, on the other hand, perfectly designed for crushing bone. Albert's teeth were designed more for slicing and shredding than for crunching.

Yes, but it could still crush small bones. Even humans can sometimes crush chicken bones if they have a pretty strong bite force.

It could. Albertosaurus has a very powerful, robust skull, thatīs the most important adaption for bone crushing
