Real lifeEdit

The Marsupial Lion's limb proportions and muscle mass distribution indicate that, although it was a powerful animal, it was not a particularly fast runner. Palaeontologists conjecture that it was an ambush predator, either sneaking up and then leaping upon its prey, or dropping down on it from overhanging tree branches. It is thought to have hunted large animals such as the Hippopotamus-sized Diprotodon and giant browsing kangaroos like Sthenurus and Procoptodon. Despite its size it may not have been a true apex predator as it shared at least part of its range with the 6 metre (20 ft) long goanna Megalania. The Marsupial Lion may have cached kills in trees in a manner similar to the modern Leopard.[5] Like many predators, it was probably also an opportunistic scavenger, feeding off carrion and driving off less powerful predators from their kills. CT scans of a well-preserved skull have allowed scientists to study internal structures and create a brain endocast showing the surface features of the animal's brain. The parietal lobes, visual cortex, and olfactory bulbs of the cerebrum were enlarged indicating that the Marsupial Lion had a good sense of hearing, sight, and smell, as might be expected of an active predator. There were also a pair of blind canals within the nasal cavity which were probably associated with detecting pheromones as in the Tasmanian Devil. This indicates that it most likely had seasonal mating habits and would "sniff out" a mate when in season.[6]

Trivia:Edit

This is the second marsupial, which met the eyes of the ARC team. The first marsupial saber-toothed tiger was the book Shadow of the Jaguar
