Stocky, hugely muscled, with canines that protrude far below the jaw, it is the archetypal Pleistocene predator. It was a member of the machairodontinae, an extinct subfamily of the Felidae (all modern cats are members of the subfamily felinae), which split from the ancestors of our furry house-pets way back in the Miocene.

C 1 Eruption Rate Calculation. In s, C 1 enamel formation was completed before the loss of the dC 1 and the completion of C 1 eruption. Thus, another approach, beyond using the canine growth rate calculated using stable oxygen isotopes [], was necessary to determine the absolute ontogenetic ages for these two developmental events, and that was the calculation of the C 1 eruption rate.

The American lion (Panthera atrox), also known as the "North American lion", or "American cave lion", is an extinct pantherine cat that lived in North America during the Pleistocene epoch and the early Holocene epoch, aboutto 11, years ago.
