Machairodus colorandensis

Machairodus colorandensis

Machairodus was a saber-toothed cat that lived during the late Miocene (11-5 million years ago) in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. According to skeletal and life reconstructions, Machairodus coloradensis was about 1.2 meter (3 feet and 11.25 in) at the shoulder, and about 200 cm (6 feet and 6.74 in) in length. If accurate, this would make M. coloradensis one of the largest felids. It was about a lion-sized cat, but was more robust and had more muscle mass. Photo: dinos.ru
