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.

Freak Felids - A Discussion of History's Largest Felines

vK wrote 240 mm for the width. Though in his ratio calculations he had this exactly: 380 mm/240 mm = 1.52. Now a width of 240 mm does not produce that number. Though, a width of 250 mm, which I measured from my book, does exactly. A few years back I was kindly provided a whole bunch of measurements on Ngandong dentitions. From it, there were a few teeth of specimens similar to this size and another that was likely from a skull a bit larger than this one, around 390-400 mm.

I've read the Hooijer document but I don't see a mandible length of the skull. I used the upper p4 (33.3 mm) measurement published and the image is from Matthew and Granger (1923) to figure out the length.
