Imagine a predator heavier than a bear, with teeth the length of your hand. Heavy and strong enough to tackle bison, it lurked behind bushes and in tall grass, ready to leap out at its next meal–a meal that might have been one of our long-ago ancestors. That’s a saber-toothed cat, who hunted in the grasslands of North America thousands of years ago. Fascinating facts about these powerful hunters are presented here in clear, simple language perfect for newly independent readers.
