There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I wanted to post my images from the Museum of Natural History here since it's probably a better location for them.

Notice the Panthera Atrox Jaw or Naegele's Jaguar jaw compared to the Short Face Bear's

But the Skull of this Short faced bear was absolutely massive and larger than the skull of the Panthera Atrox Skeleton's Skull

Smilidon Fatalis- Proportionally Long but not particularly tall compared to the American lion

American Lion "Panthera Atrox" - Very Tall and long, probably not as proportionally long as Fatalis, but overall it was at least as long if not, longer.

In LA, right next to the tar pits. Highly recommend it, I have more pictures in the "vacations and holidays" thread.

Unfortunately measurement weren't given, but it was very large and impressive.
The museum location is in LA, is the Natural History Museum.
Here's the link to the thread and more images from there
