How would we know? We have no record of how a smilodon looked.

They might have a silly looking red fleshy nose and there would be no fossil evidence of it.

They evolved to camouflage themselves as herbivores and appear friendly to people

Are you being retarded on purpose, literally any large theropod looks more terrifying by orders of magnitude.
>>
>>2314715

Only because of their larger size. By orders of magnitude.

and your point is? Pic related was about the same size as a smilodon and objectively more terrifying.
>>
>>2314741
It's not good for teeth to be exposed to air all the time. So there's the suggestion that sabertooth cats has big mastiff lips to protect the teeth. There have also been some middleground concepts with the teeth poking out a little bit but still a big jowly face that covers most of the tooth.

I didn't know Smilodon was 30 feet long.
>>
>>2316569
That only looks scary if you're a blini.
>>
>>2316580
That's a dwarf Tarascosaurus. Normal individuals were roughly 25 ft. long, but some adult remains are significantly smaller suggesting insular dwarfism. In other words, roughly the size of Smilodon.
