No Fine Manipulators has two levels, the -30 level means you lack hand equivalents, but still may have paws and such, the -50 level is no limbs.

I don't think anyone else pointed this out explicitly, so I will:

To grapple with your jaws, use Brawling, not Wrestling. Every bite counts as a one handed grapple, after which you can Worry for additional damage. See the rules in the Teeth box in Martial Arts pg. 115.

GURPS Technical Grappling can also add a lot to Animal combat, there are even mini-martial arts to model the fighting styles of different animals.
