Caption: Sabre-toothed cat. Computer artwork of a sabre- toothed cat or tiger (subfamily Machairodontinae) in an icy landscape. This extinct carnivore belongs to a different subfamily to modern tigers and lions. The sabre-toothed cat was found in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America, and lived from the Oligocene epoch (38 million years ago) until the end of the Pleistocene epoch (10,000 years ago). It could open its jaw very wide, and is thought to have used its huge upper canine teeth to stab and slash its prey. These blade-like teeth reached 20 centimetres in length.
