These great cats are broad and rangy, like beefy Indian tigers, but generally a sandy brown in coloration, very much like a cougar or African lion. Their most distinctive feature, of course, is their pair of huge canines, which they use to stab their way into their prey’s body, gripping and severing the spinal column or damaging important internal organs.
Saber-toothed cats appear to hunt in small packs or prides of six to eight individuals. It is difficult to tell males apart from females at a distance, and both genders appear to participate in the hunt.
