Smilodon (saber-toothed LIon) (saber-toothed Tiger) Smilodon gracilis, 2.5 million-500000 years ago; the smallest and earliest species with an estimated body mass of only 55-100 kg  was probably the successor[clarify] of Megantereon. The other Smilodon species probably derived from this species. Smilodon fatalis, 1.6 million-10000 years ago, replaced Smilodon gracilis in North America and Western South America. In size it was between Smilodon gracilis and Smilodon populator. The estimated body mass for this species ranges from 160 to 280 kg . Sometimes two additional species are recognized, Smilodon californicus and Smilodon floridus, but usually they are considered to be subspecies of Smilodon fatalis. Smilodon populator, 1 million-10000 years ago; occurred in the eastern parts of South America and was the largest species of all Machairodonts. With an estimated weight of 220 to 360 kg and exceptional large specimens probably up to 400 kg, it was among the heaviest felids to have ever existed .Its upper canines reached 28cm and protruded up to 17 cm out of the upper jaw.
Cat evolution (not in a full detail!!!) here is the summarised story of a cat evoultion i have used some of my simple drawing of the evolutionary tree to help you understand in the next videos i'll be discussing the detailed evolution of: Nimravids (false sabre tooths) which evolved in parallel with true cats; they are not part of true cat lineage and have left no living descendents. Machairodonts (true sabre tooths) their fossils have been found in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Although we tend to think of the sabre-toothed tiger, there were two varieties of sabre-toothed cats: dirk-toothed cats and scimitar-toothed cats. Dirk-toothed cats had two long, narrow upper canines, and were usually short-legged and stocky. Scimitar-toothed cats had upper canines that were shorter and broader, longer, thinner legs and were generally more lithe. The exception was a cat known as Xenosmilus, which has the short, broad canines of a scimitar-toothed cat, but has short legs. Felids (modern cats) such as tiger, lion, leopard, ocelot, lynx and many other cats
Tribute to Dinofelis Dinofelis is a machairosont sabre tooth belonging to tribe Metailurini (a group of scimitar toothed cats)

Lionsandme1000's lies about Smilodon (another lie from lion-fans) this user is trying to degrade the most famous sabre tooth - Smilodon he says that it was the size of a modern jaguar but really its lion sized its weight was 300kg, thats too much for a jaguar sized animal also he said that smilodon is an ancestor of a bobcat because it has a short tail. evolution is not based on the lenght of a tail, its based on the animal's full body Smilodon like all true sabre tooths belong to Machairodontinae family. they left no living descendants. they are all dead, extinct, gone!!! machairodonts evolved parallel with modern cats but they were not true ancestors of the felidae members. a small weasel like cresture called Schizailurus was the true ancestor of modern cats. the first cats arise from schizailurus were the small cats from genus felis. as the evolution continued, the small cats become bigger and bigger.
Megantereon cultridens Megantereon cultridens was an extinct machairodontinae sabre toothed cat which belonged to tribe simlodontini (a group of sabre tooth and dirk tooth cats) Megantereon was built like a modern jaguar or somewhat heavier. It had stocky forelimbs with the lower half of these forelimbs lion-sized. It had large neck muscles designed to power a devastating bite. The elongated upper canines were protected by flanges at the mandible. The largest specimens with an estimated body weight of 90-150 kg (average 120 kg) are known from India. Medium sized forms of Megantereon are known from other parts of Eurasia and the Pliocene of North America. The smallest forms from Africa und the lower Pleistocene of Europe have been estimated to only 60-70 kg. However, other sources estimated Megantereon from the European lower Pleistocene at 100-160 kg
