Until recent time the number of big cat species was quite largr and more wide spread.

One error trough,the giant cheetah and Pleistocene jaguar were not bigger than modern tigers and lion,they were about the size of lioness.

Well, think of it this way, we don't know if they even are "extinct", so therefore you may never know if they are either extinct or still alive. It's a large and mysterious world we live in, you never know whats out there...

An advice, do scientific research in the field of cryptozoology, you might discover something you never knew. And don't be lazy, get out in the world, travel, look around, and you might get lucky enough to discover something extraordinary. :-)

Keep your hopes and beliefs up, my friend!

I know the feeling, I want to become a lot of things too, and I guess you could at least try working in both fields, the fact that you wanna be a vet and a paleontologist sure sounds awesome. I'm still not sure if you get paid to be a paleontologist or how much you get paid, but it's still an awesome hobby. I know I "work" as a paleontologist on my spare time and on holidays and such, I've been traveling around looking for fossils and doing research, and it's really great and exciting. Waste your time on something you want to do.

The last four animals, from left to right, are a lynx, caracal, clouded leopard, and domestic cat. The clouded leopard is depicted as intermediate in size between the caracal and the domestic cat, the caracal being bigger than the clouded leopard and the domestic cat smaller. In reality, clouded leopards are much larger than caracals, closer in size to the lynx.

The Giant Jaguar and the American Lion are the same thing.

This is from Wiki - The skull of the extinct cat was most like that of the jaguar (P. onca). Some later authors accepted this view, but other experts considered the American lion most closely related to the African lion (P. leo) and its extinct Eurasian relative, the cave lion (P. leo spelaea or P. spelaea). Later paleontologists assigned the extinct American cat as a subspecies of P. leo (P. leo atrox) rather than as a separate species.

I worked at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, and that excerpt is somewhat right. What actually happened is this: the cat on display at the Page was labeled as the American Lion. Over the last few years, our curator has been collaborating with another scientist because they both claim that the skull is more like that of a jaguar then a lion. All of the other scientists/paleontologists at the Page disagree with a passion! Later we came to find out that our curator's collaborator only saw pictures of the skulls and never saw them in person which could drastically change the data that they collected. If you ask anyone, other than the curator at the museum, that big cat has been and always will be the American Lion because it's features are much more closely related to that of, as you said, the cave lion and the African lion. It really sucked working there and knowing it as the American Lion and then half way into me working there having to tell people it was something else. I found myself saying "this is the Giant Jaguar, formerly known as the American lion" and then having to go into this same shpeel I just told you haha. Either way, your piece was still very good and I hope that I could be of some help. =]

*latches on* I have always wondered about this. If I remember correctly, there were "giant" jaguars in Eurasia (Panthera gombaszoegensis). But what about the North American P. onca augusta? Is that a synonym for P.leo atrox? Thank you!
