Thylacoleo carnifex ("pouch lion") is an extinct genus of carnivorous marsupials that lived in Australia from the late Pliocene to the late Pleistocene (2 million to 46 thousand years ago). Some of these "marsupial lions" were the largest mammalian predators in Australia of that time, with Thylacoleo carnifexapproaching the weight of a small lion. The estimated average weight for the species ranges from 101 to 130 kg

Thylacosmilus atrox, the sabre-toothed marsupial. These carnivorous animals roamed modern-day South America from about 5.2-2.5mya. Thanks to convergent evolution Thylacosmilus closely resembles the sabre-toothed felines that followed nearly 1.5 million years later, but the two are not related

Smilodon is an extinct genus of machairodont felid. It is perhaps one of the most famous prehistoric mammals, and the best known saber-toothed cat. Although commonly known as the saber-toothed tiger, it was not closely related to the tiger or other modern cats. Smilodon lived in the Americas during the Pleistocene epoch (2.5 mya–10,000 years ago). The genus was named in 1842, based on fossils from Brazil. Three species are recognized today: S. gracilis, S. fatalis and S. populator Extinct Animals, Prehistoric Animals, Real Bigfoot, Human Evolution, Dinosaur Fossils, Epoch, Prehistory, Terra, Dinosaurs

Unique Elbows of Thylacoleo Hints at Hunting Strategy The fearsome Thylacoleo (Thylacoleo carnifex), commonly referred to as the "Marsupial Lion" may have had a unique hunting strategy. The anatomy of the limbs indicate that this native of Australia up until around 46,000 years or so ago, had very robust front legs, but it was
