The Saber-Toothed Cat, or Smilodon,[1] is a large genus of feline that appears throughout various media in the Turok franchise.


These animals appear in only a few levels of Turok: Evolution. Once during Chapter 3 in the final level, "Descent," and again during Chapter 6 in the very first level, "Shadowed Lands." They are beige and yellow colored with massive clawed paws and brown eyes. They are around the size of a large dog, and they, as their name suggests, have two massive "saber teeth" in their jaws.

The Saber-Toothed Cat was set to make an appearance in Turok 2 as a possible boss fight. It is shown with black fur and glowing yellow eyes, while also being massive in size compared to a human or even the cat in Turok: Evolution. The reason for its size is unclear; however, it can be assumed that it was the result of experimentation by the Mendel-Gruman Corporation.


In Turok: Evolution, these creatures are extremely dangerous. They can lunge great distances to reach their prey, which just so happens to be the player themselves. They are not bullet sponges, though they can take a lot of damage before dying.

They will utilize one sole attack, which is a lunge/bite. This will drop the player's health by a large chunk, and considering multiple Saber-Toothed Cats are seen at the same time, they can easily rip the player to pieces.


  • A Saber-Toothed Cat was to originally appear in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter as seen in some pre-alpha screenshots. It appears to have been cut early in development.
