Barbourofelis fricki, Saber-toothed not-cat

Extinct (yay) Apex predator from 7 million years ago, and not related to cats at all. This is another instance of convergence, where different species develop similar, and confusing features. This entire line went extinct, which is why they are not around anymore and I think that's a good thing.
