Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Of course. So the next questions that would need answers are: what was that super-predator or parasite? And what happened to it/where is it today?
Any suggestions?

The name "Marsupial Lion" is not meant to indicate any genetic relationship with lions on other continents.

The term "Lion" is used because of the large slicing teeth in the mouth. Easily seen in the Naracoorte fossils here;
http://www.naturalworlds.org/thylacoleo ... bits_1.htm

These teeth act in a slicing scissor motion for removing large chunks of flesh when feeding. They are a common trait of most large predators and especially lions. The creature was a marsupial and had slicing teeth like a lion, hence "Marsupial Lion".

I've been to the Naracoorte caves and seen the reconstructions first hand and I've seen african lions in the Melbourne Zoo. The marsupial lion strikes me as the tougher customer, the thing gave me the willies.
