Product description

Review

"Smilodon is a comprehensive treasure trove of new studies and revelations about this enigmatic cat. Werdelin, McDonald, and Shaw provide fertile ground for the emergence of new research and insights into a unique predator that is now extinct!"

(Russell W. Graham, The Pennsylvania State University)

"Smilodon, a cultural and scientific icon, deserves special treatment. This book delivers, bringing readers an impressive assembly of modern sabertooth expertise. With lovely classical paintings and many new insights, Smilodon is a requisite for sabertooth armchair aficionados and cognoscenti alike."

(Xiaoming Wang, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles)

"Smilodon is a definitive and comprehensive primer on the greatest and latest of the sabertooth cats. This comprehensive volume delves into the breadth and scope of research on this legendary animal, covering its biology from hunting behavior to the growth of its famous canine teeth, patterns of skeletal injury, and evolution."

(Blaire Van Valkenburgh, University of California, Los Angeles)

"Smilodon packs the most comprehensive collection of facts about the quintessential sabertoothed cat available between two covers, reviewing evolution, adaptations, and the history of discovery and study. It is an unmissable addition to the library of paleontologists, evolutionary biologists, and anyone fascinated by the most spectacular carnivorans ever to walk the planet."

(Mauricio Anton, paleoartist, author of Sabertooth)

"An excellent compilation of what we know about Smilodon, one of the most fascinating sabre-toothed felids. Over the course of this volume, we discover when the first fossils of this predator were found and their geographical distribution, how Smilodon killed its prey, and which pathologies affected its skeleton. The book provides us with a very complete portrait of this iconic predator."

(Manuel J. Salesa, El Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales)

"Any college-level science collection strong in paleontology must have this in-depth and authoritative survey."

(Donovan's Literary Services)

"This edited collection brings together the who-is-who of sabertooth palaeontology to provide a thorough and technical overview of the current state of the field... this book is a treasure trove collecting review articles and new research on Smilodon."

(Natural History Book Service)
