Hunter Gets Hunted

Hunter Gets HuntedThis Smilodon fatalis, or saber-toothed cat, would have enjoyed its grizzly bear breakfast had an alligator not interjected with its own predation. Now the sabertooth knows what it’s like to have something higher on the food chain than itself!

When I was a kid I had this Zoobooks magazine issue with a spectacular illustration of a Nile crocodile nabbing a male lion on the leg, and I wanted to channel that with the alligator’s attack on the sabertooth. I have to say I love seeing reptiles dominate mammalian predators this way.
