Artwork of a sabre-toothed cat (Smilodon sp. )

Sabre-toothed cat. Artwork of a sabre-toothed cat (Smilodon sp.). This powerful carnivore was close to the size of a large modern tiger, and lived in North and South America during the Upper Pleistocene (about one million years ago). The upper canine teeth of this cat were vast in size, sharp, and shaped like backward-curving daggers. Its skeleton was robust, and it had retractable claws. It was capable of hunting down even the large elephant-like animals of the Pleistocene. When these animals died out, the sabre- toothed cats died out as well, no longer able to sustain themselves without their large prey

Carnivore Fossil Vertebrate Fossils Sabre Toothed Cat Sabre Toothed Tiger Tiger Vertebrates Palaeontology Sabre Toothed Smilodon


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite artwork of a formidable creature from the past - the sabre-toothed cat (Smilodon sp. ). Resembling a modern-day tiger in size, this mighty carnivore once roamed the lands of North and South America during the Upper Pleistocene, approximately one million years ago. Its most distinctive feature was its enormous upper canine teeth, resembling sharp backward-curving daggers. With a robust skeleton and retractable claws, this predator possessed exceptional hunting skills that allowed it to take down even colossal elephant-like creatures of its time. However, as these large prey animals gradually disappeared from the landscape, so did the sabre-toothed cats. Unable to sustain themselves without their primary food source, they eventually faced extinction. The intricate details captured in this artwork bring forth not only the physical attributes but also evoke curiosity about our planet's ancient inhabitants. As we delve into paleontology and explore fossil vertebrates like Smilodon sp. , we gain valuable insights into Earth's rich history and diverse ecosystems. Displayed by Science Photo Library with utmost precision and expertise, this print serves as a testament to both artistry and scientific exploration. It invites us to marvel at nature's wonders while reminding us of species lost forever due to changing circumstances.
