Descendants evolved into seven species which occur across all the continents of Asia, North and South America, Europe and Africa as they migrated to and from Asia over time. MYA - Bay Cat Lineage - SE Asia. The second lineage to branch off was the Bay Cat Lineage at MYA and three species evolved within South East Asia.

Whatever cataclysm wiped out the dinosaurs (and many other species then on the earth), its mark on Central Asia seems to have been erased.” (Novacek, Michael J., Mark Norell, Malcolm C.
