10 Big Cats That Have Gone Extinct in Modern Times
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."
Giant Short Faced Bear-Was the largest bear ever known but also the largest carnivorous land mammal ever to exist. It lived from 800,000 to 12,500 years ago, during the ice age. It had the capability of catching and killing bison, elk and other large animals. However, it was probably more of a scavenger. Because of it's size, it could easily chase other predators off their kills.Dietary/Omnivore Family/Ursidae Origin/USA
