A bizarre, pouched super-predator that terrorized South America millions of years ago had huge sabre-like teeth but its bite was weaker than a domestic cat, new research shows. To kill, Thylacosmilus atrox must have secured and immobilized large prey using its extremely powerful forearms, before putting its sabre-teeth to use.

Sabretooth killing power depended on thick neck
