Jurassic Park Wiki

Smilodon, commonly known as a saber-toothed cat or more inaccurately, the 'saber-toothed tiger', is an extinct carnivorous mammal that lived that lived through the Pleistocene and Holocene epochs. It is the largest and most famously known of a race of predatory felines called the Saber-Toothed Cats. Its fangs could've reached a foot long.[2] Smilodon was been known to ambush big and slow animals and able to pin them down to the ground and used its saber teeth to bite at the neck of the prey. Smilodon may have also lived and hunted in groups like wolves, though this is debated.

Smilodon belonged to a subfamily within Felidae named Machairodontinae, and at least 3 species are known: S. populator (the type species), S. fatalis, and S. gracilis.
