The sabertooth tiger is a fossil that can be donated to the museum in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf. A relative of modern felines, the sabertooth was named after its large front teeth that could shred through flesh with ease. Found in the Americas, the sabertooth went extinct only 10,000 years ago, during the last ice age.
Completing the Sabertooth
In Wild World
"Hoo! Oh, hoo, how marvelous! I'm getting misty! The sabertooth tiger was an absolutely amazing beast! As its name implies, it was part of the cat family and had two long canine teeth. It could open its jaws incredibly wide, allowing it to tear into thick hides. It went extinct about 40,000 years ago...during a period when humans lived. I understand that humans also fell victim to this fierce hunter. The horror! Ah. Hoo. My apologies. I really should try to be more sensitive, eh wot?"
In City Folk
"...We're witness to glory! The saber-toothed tiger is finished! Hootie WOOTIE! Such an event this is! As the name suggests, these fellows had two big, swordlike teeth, and they were a part of the cat family. They could open their jaws 180 degrees, allowing them to penetrate the thick hides of their prey! Savage! They went extinct 10,000 years ago... likely because there wasn't enough to eat! The mammoths they hunted were all eaten by humans instead, eh wot? HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I... I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?"
The completed sabertooth tiger can be found next to the mammoth in the second fossil room, arranged in a running position, its jaw wide open.
In New Leaf
In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.
"The sabertooth tiger was about the size of a lion and is famous for its two long canine teeth. It would prey mostly on woolly mammoths, but climate change made that difficult. Eventually, the changing climate and competition with humans for food drove these creatures to extinction."
