The concept of convergent evolution is essential to the understanding of the sabertooth adaptations, and the concept’s applications to the problem of sabertooth evolution have been many, and sometimes contradictory. In order to fully understand the implications of convergence, and sabertooth evolution in general, we need to consider some aspects of mammalian and vertebrate classification. When I said that all sabertooths were synapsids, I introduced a major group of vertebrates that may be unfamiliar to many readers.

In the gorgonopsians, the incisors are more numerous than in mammals and are arranged in an impressive arc, but the lower canines remain large, although considerably smaller than the upper ones. In the marsupial thylacosmilids, the lower canines are much smaller, almost peg-like; but the incisors are smaller still, even vestigial.

This is in striking contrast to the more typical sabertooth groups, which implies some mysterious functional difference. In some lineages of placental mammalian sabertooths, it is possible to trace how the lower canines, still large in the earlier species, get more and more reduced in later forms, while the lower incisors get larger and more protruding. The cheek teeth tend to be reduced in both number and size in sabertooths.
