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.

This species displays the classic features of the genus, with skull similar in size to that of the jaguar, moderately flattened canines, large carnassial and a rather primitive mastoid region. The first fossils of this species known to science were a damaged skull and an upper canine found at the South African site of Sterkfontein, as described by R. Broom in 1937.
