Rumble / Weird ScienceNew research describes the remains of a gigantic, four-legged mammalian carnivore that terrorized Africa some 22 million years ago. The name of this formidable creature is Simbakubwa kutokaafrika, which translated from Swahili means “big lion coming from Africa.” But this was no feline—it belonged to an extinct group of mammals known as hyaenodonts, which have no close relation to any species of mammalian carnivore living today.
