researchers have discovered in Kenya is one of the largest carnivorous mammals ever to have lived on the earth. The lion-like animal was probably up to 1500 pounds and “may be larger than a polar bear,” reported researchers led by Matthew Borths from the Ohio University in the USA. Therefore, it was the dominant carnivores in the area and could probably hunt animals, the present-day elephants and hippos resemble. It lived around 23 million years ago in Eurasia, North America and Parts of Africa and the Arab world.

The new species was baptized Simbakubwa kutokaafrika, as the scientists in the “Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.” “Simba” means the East African language widely used Swahili for “lion”, “kubwa” means “big” and “kutokaafrika” “out of Africa”.

The scientists believe that the size of the Tiers had to do with the environment. Changes in nature during this time led to larger herbivores could live on the earth, as the researchers explained.
