Megantereon inexpectatus

Saber-tooth Cat Skull

Megantereon was a genus of prehistoric saber-toothed cat that lived in North America, Eurasia, and Africa. It may have been the ancestor of Smilodon. Megantereon was built like a large modern jaguar, but somewhat heavier. It had stocky forelimbs with the lower half of these forelimbs lion-sized. It had large neck muscles designed to deliver a powerful shearing bite. The elongated upper canines were protected by flanges at the mandible. The largest specimens, had an estimated body weight of 200–330 pounds.

Location: China Age: Late Miocene, 6 MYA
