Sabre-Tooth VS. Sabre-Tooth

There are a few differences found between the sabre-tooth cats. They are all approximately the same size. The cat, Smilodon consisted of small legs and the characteristic long teeth of the sabre-tooth cats. The scimitar cat, Homotherium, and Xenosmilus, had longer forelimbs (longer than the hindlimbs), and a longer neck.

The biggest difference among them is found in their teeth (www.museum.state.il.us/exhibits/larson/smilodon.html).
