I'm going to be doing a series on the evolution of felines. I'm going to pick several prehistoric cats throughout history and do anatomy studies on them, and see how cats have changed over time. This isn't going to be linear with a single cat, it'll just be cats I select at different time periods. So starting things off is machairodus aphanistus, which lived around late miocene to middle pleistocene. These cats had narrow heads and short legs, therefor they were probably ambush predators. I hope you guys enjoy my next big project!

For those of you who don't know, my two anatomy books "An Atlas of Dinosaur Anatomy" and "An Atlas of Prehistoric Animal Anatomy" are up for sale! If you like my studies like this one then you will love my books! Both come with many animals and several that will ONLY be found in my books! There's also a special Evolution of Baleen Whales in my Prehistoric Animal Anatomy book, you will not find this study anywhere else! Feel free to ask me questions. I will be selling them at Amazon and Barns and Noble soon, I'm going through the whole process and I will post links as soon as they're approved! You can buy them now from Lulu at these links:
