Sabre-toothed cat (Machairodius aphanistus) chasing antelope (Miotragocerus pannoniae). Three-toed hipparion horses (Hippotherium primigenium) are running in the background. The sabre-toothed cat belonged to the genus Machairodus which thrived between 13 to 2 million years ago throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. While there were differences amongst the various species, one common feature of all Machairodus was their serrated canine teeth. Sabre-toothed cats used these large teeth to give fatal wounds to their prey.
