Species Description: These animals were small as far as saber toothed cats go. They belong to the tribe Metailurini. They had more conical sabers than the big saber cats like Machairodus which were long, flat, and had sharp edges. They were carnivores who hunted in packs and were found in USA, Europe, Africa, and Eurasia. They were spread over a wide area of the world but few are found, especially complete skulls. There were some found in Florida but these are extremely rare.
