Scimitar cat, Homotherium serum
Homotherium serum is the lesser known of two species of sabertoothed cats that occupied North America during the late Pleistocene. These animals were scimitar-toothed cats, whereas the other group of sabertooths (Smilidon fatalis) were dirk-toothed cats. Homotherium is best known from Friesenhahn Cave in Bexar Co., TX, where the remains of this cat were found with their prey, hundreds of teeth of young mammoths (Evans and Meade, 1961). Midwestern records are extrememly rare.
