About :

Smilodon is an extinct genus of Machairodont felid. It is one of the most famous prehistoric mammals, and the best known saber-toothed cat.
Smilodon lived in the Americas during the Pleistocene epoch (2.5 mya–10,000 years ago).
Three species are recognized today: Smilodon gracilis, Smilodon fatalis and Smilodon populator.
Smilodon gracilis was the smallest and earliest species in Genus Smilodon, estimated to have been only 55 to 100 kg (120 to 220 lb) about the size of a jaguar.
Smilodon fatalis was largest from North America and had a weight of 160 to 280 kg (350 to 620 lb) and height of 100 cm (39 in).
Smilodon populator from South America is perhaps the largest known felid, over all, at 220 to 400 kg (490 to 880 lb) in weight and 120 cm (47 in) in height.

Smilodon gracilis was the earliest species in Genus Smilodon evolved around 2.5 million ago and went extinct around 500,000 years ago.
Smilodon fatalis was second largest overall (largest in North America) and second to go extinct. Most recent fossil records show it became extinct around 13,000 years ago.
Smilodon populator from South America was largest among all species. It held a little longer and went extinct around 10,000 years ago.
All Smilodon species are most famous for their relatively long canine teeth, which are the longest found in the saber-toothed cats, at about 28 cm (11 in) long in the largest species, S. populator.
Despite being more powerfully built than other large cats, Smilodon had a weaker bite. But, Smilodon's gape could have reached almost 120 degrees, while that of the modern lion reaches 65 degrees.
All of them were apex predators in their respective times.
All 3 species probably lived and hunted in herds.

Love all your videos EXCEPT for the terrible music. Have to turn sound off every time. Save only the music for Best collection of Extinct Big Cat in Paintings. ( Unsure of exact title) The music for that is amazing and makes them seem to come alive.

I believe the smilodons could have lived in packs. Because of their long canines, these cats probably weren't capable of carrying their own young. So wherever the mother gives birth, that's where the cubs would be until they're capable of traveling with their mother. Now if the smilodons were solitary hunters then this would be a big disadvantage, because again it probably weren't capable of carrying its young, so if the mother thinks the den isn't safe or hidden enough there's nothing she could do about it but hope that no predator discovers it while she's out hunting. But with packs then this wouldn't be a problem because the members could take turns guarding the litter while the others hunt. That's what I think anyway

Actually the American Lion was the buggest cat to ever walk the earth next would be S.populator the American lion was roughly 25% larger than its african cousin so just imagine a slightly taller liger (Offspring of male lion and female tiger) there weight difference from source to source but the most common was 560 - 1100 pounds that's overall as a species including both male and female being 1000 pounds in the wild for a cst is absolutely insane S.fatalis is shoter and not as heavy as the american lion most likely the male lion would've been able to scare off S.fatalis but since they lived all the way down to peru I can imagine a American lion and Smilodon Populator two of the biggest cats to walk the earth meet at a dead mammoth carcass the female lions back off while the much larger male Smilodon takes there kill before he has a bite the male lions roar can be heared in the distance the Smilodon roaring in return as the male lion closes in the old rivals meet face to face once again in an epic showdown but in all seriousness I think the American lion would have one sure the Smilodon was the strongest but his teeth were brittle he had a weak bite and wasnt very agile due to his lumbar region being shortened the American lion although has the strength disadvantage its not by a lot he's more agile more tobust teeth a bite force doubled that of a African lion and assuming they lived in prides like all the lions did he would have greater fighting experience due to fighting wolves bears Smilodon hyenas etc 24/7 smildons were NOT social creatures so he would not risk a fight with another predator like nowaday tigers

K, so, random and slightly dumb question, is there any evidence that a saber toothed cat (any kind) lived at the same time and environment as early humans? Told you, kinda dumb but I'd like to know :P

I am not convinced that arctodis presented a credible threat to a pack of healthy smilodon fatalis...to the contrary ....the bear may have been on the menu during tough times ....smilodon preyed on animals of its size ....so it being so large a bear is not a real factor ....

Smiidon were very fluffy animals in dark coat, looked like a giant hyenas with fangs. The fangs were venomous/toxic. Smilodon would wrestle and establish a hold on big herbivores, and after that it injected the venom, and fled aside and waited for prey to die, walking long distances behind the victim. Smilofon began eating from stomach, not risking his fangs. Smilodon never fought each other, but had rituals of display.
