Also called the Saber-toothed-cat, it lived approximately 2.5million to 10,000 years ago. That's as specific as anyone can get, sorry.

Edit: It also depends on which specific Smilodon species. Each is listed below.

Smilodon gracilis: 2,500,000 to 500,000 years ago.

Smilodon fatalis: 1,600,000 to 10,000 years ago.

Smilodon populator: 1,000,000 to 10,000 years ago.

You can read more about each species at wikipedia (see above).

Smilodon lived between 2.5 million years ago and 10,000 years ago. I believe that an individual's lifespan was probably about 15 years (similar to modern big cats in the wild).
