Wild Sabre-toothed Tigers Were Real

These ferocious felines existed 55 million to 11,700 years ago. Sabre-tooth Tigers were carnivores named for the elongated bladelike canine teeth, which in some species were up to 50cm long.

Quite bear-like in build, they were believed to be excellent hunters and hunted animals such as sloths and mammoths. They could open their jaws at an angle of 120 degrees – almost twice as wide as a modern lion! It is believed the Sabre-tooth Cat’s extinction may be linked to the decline and extinction of the large herbivores they hunted. Other explanations include climate change and competition with humans.
