What kind of animal is Barburofelida?

Barburofelida was a type of extinct animal that belonged to the order Carnivora and the suborder Feliformia.
It was sometimes called a false saber-toothed cat because of its long, flattened canine teeth.

Barburofelida lived in North America, Eurasia and Africa during the Miocene epoch, about 16.9 to 9 million years ago.
This animal was a large and muscular predator, with some species reaching the size of a lion or bigger.
It had a short skull, a postorbital bar, and a ventrally extended mental process on its lower jaw.
Barburofelida had large carnassial teeth for slicing meat and may have been social or faced high competition for food.
The creature walked with a semi-plantigrade stance, meaning it partly rested on its heels.
It was the only member of the family Barbourofelidae to reach North America, where it was represented by the genus Barbourofelis.
Barburofelida became extinct during the Tortonian stage of the Miocene, possibly due to climate change or competition from other carnivores.
