Amazing Saber-Toothed Tiger Facts!
1. “The most prominent feature of the saber-toothed tiger was its long, sharp, canine teeth. It would hide in the grass, lie in wait, and then pounce on its prey to deliver a fatal bite.”
2. The saber-toothed tiger roamed freely in the Americas from around 2.5 million years ago until the species went extinct around 11,700 years ago.
3. Its only true enemy was human beings. Human hunters and temperature changes are thought to have driven this animal to extinction.
4. The canine teeth of the saber-toothed tiger averaged 14 cm. (7 in.). They could reach up to 28 cm. (11 in.) long for the largest of S. populator species.
5.Thousands of fossils of saber-toothed tigers were found in the La Brea Tar Pits located in Los Angeles. They got stuck in the tar trying to prey on the other animals that were stuck. It is the second most commonly found fossil at that location. This creature may have enjoyed a nice last meal before succumbing to death by slowly sinking into the tar.
6. The largest of the species could weigh up to 400 kg. (882 lb.). They could be almost 100 cm. (39.4 in.) tall when standing on four legs and much taller 175 cm. (68.9 in.) when rising up to pounce on prey.
7. This animal is very different from a modern-day tiger or a cat. No direct descendant exists today.
8. Scientists determined from the fossilized bones of its vocal cords that the saber-toothed tiger could roar like a modern-day lion and probably much louder.
9. The sabertooth cat (Smilodon fatalis) is the official California State Fossil.
