Pleistocene Snapshots -Megantereon

In our imagination, we often picture the sabertooths engaged in savage predatory battles, but when we encounter the big cats in the wild most of the times they are just resting, or walking casually from point A to point B. I like to imagine what it would be to travel back in time to the Pleistocene and, after a long search, to come across a sabertooth cat, like this Megantereon, walking relaxedly and disappearing in the bushes after a short while… we wouldn’t need to get scared by its ferocity, just to absorb its beauty. This is one of the reasons why I think we can never pay too much attention to anatomy and proportions when reconstructing these creatures. Only in that way can we reach a bit closer to that impossible goal -to see the real animals face to face.
