Dr Ross Barnett, who conducted the research at Oxford University's department of Zoology, said: "These ancient lions were like a super-sized version of today's lions and, in the Americas, with longer legs adapted for endurance running.

"These ancient lions were like a super-sized version of today's lions, up to 25 per cent bigger than those we know today and, in the Americas, with longer legs adapted for endurance running," said Dr Ross Barnett, who led the research at Oxford University.

"There has been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing of animals across the land bridge separating North America and Asia at the Bering Strait," said Ross Barnett of Oxford University's Henry Wellcome Ancient Biomolecules Centre. However, when the scientists analysed the mitochondrial DNA of the American "cheetah", a species called Miracinonyx trumani, they found that its closest relative was not the African cheetah but the American mountain lion or puma, Puma concolor. "The data suggests that cheetahs originated in the Old World and that a puma-like cat invaded North America around six million years ago," Mr Barnett said. Mitochondrial DNA from the bones of a museum specimen of Miracinonyx suggests that its closest relative is the American puma, and that they shared a common ancestor as recently as three million years ago - half the age of the Old World cheetah. The difficulty with understanding the true origin of the American "cheetah" is that it had evolved to look similar to the true Old World cheetah because of what is known as convergent evolution - unrelated animals coming to look the same because they occupy the same ecological niche. Another facet of the study shows that although the sabre-toothed cats belong to the same family as the domestic cat, they are the most distantly related members of the cat family."The study confirms what the palaeontologists said about sabretooths being a separate subfamily within the cats," Mr Barnett said. And what about the domestic cat?

"There has been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing of animals across the land bridge separating North America and Asia at the Bering Strait and cats were no exception," said Ross Barnett of Oxford University's Henry Wellcome Ancient Biomolecules Centre. But when the scientists analysed the mitochondrial DNA of the American "cheetah", a species called Miracinonyx trumani, they found that its closest relative was not the African cheetah but the American mountain lion or puma, Puma concolor. "The data suggests that cheetahs originated in the Old World and that a puma-like cat then invaded North America around six million years ago," Mr Barnett said.
