Smilodon, better known as the sabre-toothed cat, is ready to pounce on its prey! Smilodon is not a tiger, as is sometimes assumed, but is the best known and largest of its kind. Safari Ltd. provides realistic depictions of their favorite Ice Age animals as well as other extinct creatures from our past. This large muscular feline had massive dagger-like fangs and is well known from thousands of skeletons excavated from the Rancho La Brea tar pits of California. Smilodon hunted for prey in North and South America before it became extinct about 12 thousand years ago. Journey to the Ice Age and beyond with Safari Ltd's Prehistoric World collection.
