The bones of a 37-million-year-old Sabre-tooth tiger are going up for auction.

Saber-tooth tigers, or the Smilodons, are small mammals known for their pair of long, razor-sharp teeth.

It’s one of the most iconic prehistoric animals and existed during the last ice age – 12,000 years ago.

The remains of this tiger was found in South Dakota, in America, last year.

While the skeleton is complete, it doesn’t include ALL of the bones. The “missing bones were remade with a 3D printer.

Now they’re going up for auction. Due to how rare the skeleton is, many experts believe it will be sold for around $150,000NZD.

Sabre-tooth Tigers

They lived in North America, Europe, and Asia 42-20 million years ago.

They lasted for about 22 million years.
