new sabre-toothed cat discovered; dottie jealous

tuesday is science day for the new york times, so i figured we can have fun with science today, too. the folks over at science news have broken a story that should cause a chill to overtake your frail, human bones. the discovery of a new species of sabre-toothed cat, nicknamed the "cookie-cutter cat" due to its serated teeth and precision bite, had the largest arm-span of all the big cats for grabbing prey and ripping it into bite-sized morsels of yummy goodness.

“This was the sumo wrestler of big cats.”

i sure hope they don't try and pull an encino man stunt with this guy.
