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.

S. gracilis was the smallest species at 55 to 100 kg (120 to 220 lb) in weight about the size of a jaguar. The earliest species of Smilodon is S. gracilis, which existed from 2.5 million to 500,000 years ago (early Blancan to Irvingtonian ages) and was the successor in North America of Megantereon, from which it probably evolved.
S gracilis was similar to its predecessor Megantereon of the same size, but its dentition and skull were more advanced, approaching S. fatalis.
