I think A. giganteus was a Eurasian species, while A. kabir lived in North Africa.

Is this the largest of the Machairodus genus?

It seems so. There is also M. kabir. Was allocated many spesies, but apparently no one can guarantee for their validity

Apparently along with M. kurteni, kabir and giganteus have been placed in their own genus, amphimachairodus.

Yes, I heard about it, by not yet versed in modern taxonomy of Machairodus.

This is so cool! What do you use to make these? Do you draw them or what do you do?
