Protection status: Extinct
A South‭ ‬African gorgonopsian predator,‭ ‬Aelurognathus is noted for having small incisor teeth,‭ ‬something that might means that it scraped flesh from bones rather than crunch on the bones directly.‭ ‬Additionally remains of a dicynodont thought to have been fed upon by an Aelurognathus show that it was pulled apart from the rear.‭ ‬This would have been a less bony area than the front,‭ ‬so again this may suggest that Aelurognathus scraped flesh from carcasses rather than crush them.
