Tuesday wasn't the first time Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has bitten an opponent, but it stands as his best-known bite because of the attention directed at the World Cup.
Where does it rank among memorable sports bites? Here's our list.
1. Mike Tyson. When Evander Holyfield didn't cower in fear during their 1997 heavyweight fight, Tyson got frustrated, opened his mouth and went for the ear. Tyson was never the same, but his bite remains the undisputed champ of sports chomps.
2. Conrad Dobler. One of the dirtiest players in NFL history admitted to biting the finger of Minnesota's Doug Sutherland. As Dobler told Esquire more than a decade ago: "So I bite one finger in my life, and I don't even chew on it. The legend grew from there. It's almost like I'm worse than Jeffrey Dahmer."
3. Marv Albert. The Hall of Fame broadcaster pled guilty in 1997 to misdemeanor counts of assault and battery after a trial in which it was revealed he had bitten two women during sexual encounters.
4. Luis Suarez. The incident Tuesday was not his most disgraceful act. That would be either the racial insults he directed at Manchester United's Patrice Evra two years ago, which resulted in an eight-game suspension, or his refusal to shake Evra's hand in their first encounter following Suarez' return.
5. Wayne "Tree" Rollins. The Atlanta Hawks center wasn't the first NBA player to possess an intense dislike for Boston's Danny Ainge. But in a 1983 brawl, he became the first to take a bite out of Ainge.
