Megalictis ferox is an extinct predator of the family of mustelids (weasel) living on the territory of North America during the Miocene. Probably outwardly it resembled a short-faced wolverine, the size of a jaguar. It was a very powerful beast weighing 100 kg, able to cope with animals several times larger than itself. His modern relatives, weighing about 20 kg, terrify the larger predators living in the same territory with them. Megalictis, with its size and strength, could take the prey from a much larger animal.
