Smilodon, or more commonly known as the saber toothed cat, was a carnivorous mammal that lived in south america
Although people call it the saber tooth tiger, that is inaccurate. It is actually, the saber tooth cat. It was the largest of the saber tooths and so it was larger than the other pleisostine cats like homotherium and dinofelis. It also had the largest saber teeth of any animal that lived on the Earth. Smilodon were very resourceful animals, being able to survive until Homo Sapiens, became intact. One of the first saber toothed cat was dinofelis, which hunted our ancestors, Austrolopithicus Afracanis.
In Other MediaEdit
