The now extinct 'American Lion' was a giant predator roaming North and South America as recently as 11,000 years ago. It is thought to have been about twenty-five percent larger than the modern African lion. "American lions likely preyed on deer, North American horses (now extinct), North American camels, North American tapirs, American bison, mammoths, and other large, herbivorous animals."
