Hi everyone, these days I was thinking about sabertoothed animals (I know I'm a bit crazy). I was thinking about the difference in the canine of different animals, I know the difference in the sabertooth of machairodontinae, smilodontinae and metailurinae. I also know that thylacosmilus has triangular shaped canines. But what about barbourofelids and nimravids, are there difference that permits to distinguish their canines with felids sabertooth? 


Thank you to anyone who can enlight me

I answer by myself. but I discovered that barbourofelidae have a lingual groove on the canine and sometimes even a labial groove. It often has also little crenulation on canine edges
