The giant, asiatic Polar bear-sized Sabertooth. Rivaling Smilodon Populator in size. This was Shere Khan before there is Shere Khan lol

I love some imaginative play so, maybe these two are brothers exiled from their former territory.

Majestic and dominantly powerful in a delightfully primeval fashion. I like the camo pattern which suggests tiger stripe effects without actually being them.

Beautiful piece! I was curious if I could have permission to use this for a page on Animal Jam Clans Wiki. I will provide credit with a link to your DA account. :)

Haha, I was going to say a similar thing. Would you mind me featuring this in a DA group where we will soon be discussing what makes a compelling design? Https://compomaniacs.deviantart.com

Although this appears almost ruff it actually looks good. Love how the mouth was made and the position of the paws. This is better then what I could do when attempting on a background, so nice work.

"Horribilis" is the best name any animal can recieve

Spectacular! Though this guy probably was the record breaker at 405kg, as no actual S.populator specimens known reach 400kg- those are purely hypothetical at best.
