Product Description

Smilodon Saber-toothed Cat Skull
Smilodon Saber-toothed Cat Skull Replica, Wooden Walnut base included as a stand!

Mammoths, dire wolves, short-faced bears, ground sloths, and the state fossil of California - the saber-toothed cat (Smilodon fatalis) are among the prehistoric species found at the La Brea Tar Pits.

Smilodon fatalis is an extinct genus of machairodont felid. It is perhaps the best known saber-toothed cat in North America and lived during the Pleistocene epoch (2.5 myaŚ10,000 years ago). Several fossils have been found in these tar pits.

Smilodon was more robustly built than any modern cat, with particularly well-developed forelimbs and exceptionally long upper canines. Its jaw was bigger than modern cats and its upper canines were slender and fragile, being adapted for precision killing. These attributes made Smilodon a specialized hunter of large herbivores like bison and camels.

The Smilodon went extinct 10,000 years ago.

Size: 14" L X 8" W X 8" H, Weight: about 6 lbs, for shipping. Does have two snaggle teeth in upper far right jaw. Makes him look very realistic. An awesome accent to add to any professional collection!
