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.

Homotherium ischyrus on the basis of a nearly complete skeleton from Birch Creek, Idaho. in general morphology the animal is similar to the Old World species Homotherium latidens, but some characters such as the retention of a two toothed third upper premolar in the mandible and an elongated lumbar section in the vertebral column suggest an early separation from the Europe lineage.
Taken from de book The other Saber-Tooths Scimitar-Tooth Cats of the Western Hemisphere (Virginia L. Naples - Larry D. Martin - John P. Babiarz)
