This immense, monstrous feline is almost as tall at the shoulder as a human. It has a long body with bold stripes and paws the size of bucklers.

Dire tigers, also called smilodons, were giant cats with a pair of huge fangs jutting from their powerful jaws. Due to these teeth, they were often referred to as saber-toothed tigers.[citation needed] Dire tigers preyed on just about anything that moved, patiently stalking a potential meal, and striking whenever the creature let down its guard.[4]

Physical descriptionEdit

Dire tigers grew to be over 12 feet long and could weigh up to 6,000 pounds.[4]


A dire tiger attacked by running at prey, leaping, and clawing and biting as it raked with its rear claws.[4]
