A saber-toothed cat/tiger is any member of various extinct groups of predatory mammals that were characterized by long, curved saber-shaped canine teeth. The large maxillary canine teeth extended from the mouth even when it was closed. The saber-toothed cats were found worldwide from the Eocene era to the end of the Pleistocene era (42 million years ago to approx. 11,000 years ago), existing for about 42 million years.
One of the best-known Saber Tooth cats is the Smilodon.
