Example text

The sabertooth Dinofelis confronts a baboon, which has also been trapped in the steep-walled cavity. Neither animal will be able to leave. 34 the carcasses of the first victims started a “chain reaction” of carnivore trappings, so this is not a carnivore trap in the full sense. Incarcal Another site that may have operated partly as a carnivore trap is Incarcal, in Girona, in northeastern Spain. This is a complex of karst cavities (nine cavities are currently known) in Pliocene lacustrine limestone filled with fossiliferous sediments.

One especially fine specimen is the skeleton of an old sabertooth, which was found articulated in a resting pose – suggesting that the animal simply lay down and died. 1). Haile 21A Another cave site that may have been a sabertooth den is the Irvingtonian (early Pleistocene, about 1 Ma) cave site of Haile 21A in Florida. This is the site where the first and only undisputed specimens of the robust homotherin Xenosmilus hodsonae were found. The partial skeletons of two individuals were discovered at this site, together with abundant remains of a peccary, Platygonus cumberlandensis, and some fragmentary fossils of Smilodon gracilis and of a gomphotherid mastodon.

The various groups of sabertooths, which initially attract our attention because of their striking similarities, also retain many features that betray their different evolutionary origins. The skulls and especially the dentitions of creodonts and carnivorous marsupials are so different from those of true carnivores that it is relatively simple (at least for the specialist) to tell creodont and marsupial sabertooths from “true” sabertooth cats. However, the similarities between more closely related sabertooth groups can be so detailed as to lead specialists to mistaken interpretations of their affinities.
