Early Afrofelis

Early Afrofelis species are the base of the Afrofelid family tree. A cladist (someone who wont group some descendants of an ancestor without all ie they consider birds to be reptiles) would place them in a separate subfamily from all the others, and especially wouldn't place them in the same genus! The species are: A. antiquus, 15 inches long; A. eos, 21 inches long; A. senex, 2 feet long; A. migrans, 3 feet long (ancestor of Pseudofelis) and A. marinus, 30 inches long (ancestor of Indofelis and later Afrofelis). They preyed on small mammals, taking larger prey the larger they got.
