This classic saber tooth cat (or Smilidon) roamed North America (California) and South America (Argentina). It had a short tail, much like the bobcats of today. Its huge pair of teeth on the upper jaw were serrated along their back edges, this allowed it to easily pierce the flesh of its prey more easily. With its muscular shoulders and neck, it most likely feed on slow moving large prey in which it could sink its large teeth into. Large numbers of skeletons have been found in the Pleistocene tar pits of Rancho La Brea in Los Angeles. Smilodon californicus has been adopted as California's state fossil.
