Smilodon was a prehistoric cat, more commonly known as the "Saber toothed tiger."

Habitat[]

Smilodon lived in North America 2.5 MYA to 500,000 years ago. It mainly hunted megafauna, bison and deer.

Size[]

Smilodon had three species- Gracilis, Fatalis and Populator, from smallest to largest. Gracilis was 55 to 100 kg, Fatalis was 160 to 200 kg and Populator was a staggering 220 to 400 kg!

Cause of extinction[]

Smilodon thrived for over 1 million years, but as its main food source, megafauna, went extinct, it died out too.
