They were about the size of a modern lion with a maximum length of 15 feet. Smilodon, the largest known saber toothed cat, could weigh up to 440 lbs, out weighing most modern day cats species.
Sabertooth cats were significantly larger than most species of modern large cats (lions reach average lengths of 8-9 feet, tigers 9-10 feet, while sabertooths can grow in excess of 15 feet!). However, due to muscle and weight distribution, sabretooth cats carried about the same amount of weight as a large tiger, with the average weight of the largest sabertooth (Smilodons) weighing in at around 440 pounds.
