Smilodon (californicus).It lived through the majority of the Pleistocene epoch. Smilodon had the longest teeth of any of the sabre-toothed cats, being around 28cm long in the largest subspecies. Seemingly in correlation with its long canines, its bite wasn’t as strong as some of the modern big cats. Apparently, the longer the canines, the weaker the bite. Smilodon would have only used its fragile canines to sever the blood and air supply to its prey once it had already been subdued by the cat’s immensely strong and robust body and forearms.
