Cave Lions lived off bison and Megaloceros.
Phorusrhacos Phorusrhacos

The Phorusrhacos was a carnivore. Its big pointed beak meant it could catch small prey.

The Titanoboa must have eaten big fish and crocodiles, like anacondas do nowadays.

Despite its size, the Acherontisuchus could still be attacked by the Titanoboa which was twice as big!
