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.

@GrizzlyClaws :

About #438: candid question: by looking at the narrow extremity (compared with some tigers' ones) of the cave lion's fang root, this is an additional proof we are faced with a lion and not with a tiger. In other words, cave lion was a lion and not a tiger wasn't it ? Are we able to answer this question through that, by examining the fangs ?

May be this question is solved now, but it has been being a debate for long time...

The Cave lion is diversified, the majority got narrow root, while a minority got broad root like the tiger canine teeth.

About #440: OK, sorry, I was too "hasty" as concerns my question from only one cave lion's fang photo.

@GrizzlyClaws:

About #443: indeed, you're quite right... Some cave lion's fangs are very similar to the tiger's ones (as concerns the broad root). Thank you !
