The Smilodon, also known as Sabretooth, Sabretooth Tigers, "Sabretoothed Cats", and Saber-Tooth Tigers were prehistoric predators to the early humans.
Around 30,000 years ago, the Smilodon were predators to the Neanderthals.
A few thousand years later, they met but couldn't hunt down the Inhumans, due to their powerful weapons.
Circa 13,000 BC, great-tusked tigers were used in arenas in Acheron.
Although thought extinct in the outside world, the sabre-toothed tiger continued to exist in the artificial preserve known as the Savage Land into the Modern Age, as seen with Zabu.
