Species: Hoplophoneus primaveus

Species description: The long –legged Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of larger one)with razor –sharp sabers and the second earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period 35 MYA -23 MYA . These animals had a lot of physical characteristics similar and exact to Smilodon including famous saber-guards and similar sabers while smaller . They stood at over 2 ft tall the size of a large bobcat, and were more of a group predator with a close knit families as evidenced by some hoplos found together in death while overall very rare species hunting an abundant food supply of grazing ungulates including camels and oreodonts. Using their highly developed saber-teeth they would likely sever the blood supply in the neck of their prey in the initial attack.

Beautiful Ultra Rare Adult Homotherium Saber Cat Lower Jaw Section w 2 Incisors-1 Canine

Species : HOMOTHERIUM

Species description : This cat evolved from Machairodus and appeared at Miocene –Pliocene border about 5 MYA and lived in Africa as well as Euroasia and died out lastly in Asia and North America about 10,000 years ago so it was highly successful. It was a scimitar cat built like a modern lion that had about a 13” skull but much longer teeth called sabers. It was larger than average saber-tooth cat that was very successful yet hardly ever found in fossil records. Complete skeletons have only been found in Texas and of this animal complete skeletons in Asia have never been found and only a few skulls .The sabers per head size are smaller than other the big cats. It preyed on wooly mammoths as found out in Texas. IT looks like a megantereon however much shorter sabers and less sized lower saber guard and sabers reached to end of lower jaw as this one does. It reached 1.1 meters at shoulder . As said compared to megantereon, smilodon, and machairodotus its sabers were relatively short but still they are nice sized sabers. It provided a great puncturing and gripping force . The skull was longer than smilodon. This jaw had down-turned forward flanges to protect the scimitars . It large canine teeth were crenulated and designed for slashing rather than purely stabbing . Some of the physical appearances were unusual for a big cat as it had limbs that gave the homotherium a hyena like appearance. The forelegs were elongated while hind legs were rather squat with feet planti-grade causing back to slope down towards a short tail. It had a large nasal square nasal opening like a cheetah which allowed quicker oxygen intake with brain visual cortex large and allowed it to hunt during the day instead of night like many cats. It lived 5 million years longer than megatereon. It hunted in packs and not only killed mammoths but also rhinoceros juveniles.

Geographical Area: Possible Early Pleistocene

Location: Origin France Item description & rating: 1-10 10 X- Ultra RARE Beautiful Adult Homotherium Scimitar Saber-Tooth Cat Canine Incisor 1.25” Long Plus another reg incisor . It is 100 %original bone and 100 % Teeth original with one smaller incisor plus a large1.25” Canine larger incisor with partial front of jaw.(Per a noted authority ). Both incisors look great with also a root of another in jaw . I have wanted a whole one for years and the opportunity was afforded from a friend who is also the top expert on these creatures , and this will be admired by me & ones who read this. Only a small number found in Texas cave and 2 in Florida and a handful in China and Europe. The great thing about this species it is a form of crenatidens but a different unclassified species that needs researched even more so we can safely say only a few of this exist . AS someone who knows a little on cats said the species is close to be Xenosmulus but different so no species has been classified as of this date so hopefully a book could come from this at later date. Anyway so rare it is not a labeled known species as of yet so under crenatidans for now . This just doesn’t come along so for true collectors of sabercats this section is a must . The canine saber has wear on tip probably natural but unknown . You’ll love this one as I do if you know cats. These from these cats just aren’t available

MOST COMPLETE RAREST OF RARE ADELPHAILURUS kansensis SABER-TOOTH CAT 11” SKULL

Species: Adelphailurus kansensis

Species Description: This is rarest of all sabertooth cats in USA that lived from early Miocene 6-8 MYA and were the size of a modern cougar or puma . Its body also had the same shape as a puma also, and had long compressed upper canine-sabers that hunted small birds and mammals in ambush . This cat is a false saber-tooth cat and had retained a second upper premolar, which is unusual for a cat . It was the second largest of the late Miocene cats and was an Eurasian immigrant. It was a metailurus cat, which besides this species and one other was only found in Asia and a few in Europe. It is not one of the top 6 saber-cats found and has only been found with partials with top of skull never found in USA according to reading all documents . It was identified by Hilbert in 1934 with only a few skull pieces and a few partial bones ever found so this skull is the most complete skull known to exist. A partial humerus, radius, ulna first phalanx and was named after the first skull jaw section found in Kansas. Most of bones found in Arizona in this small area, and one found in Bone Valley, Florida also.

Geological formation: Milk Creek Formation

Geological period: 8-6 MYA Miocene Early Hempghilian Tribe-Metailuri Genus: metailurus

Item Location: Congress Junction, Arizona

Item rating and description: (1-10) 10 AMAZING 11” Long x 7” wide agape Adelpharilurus kansensis saber-tooth cat SKULL-The Most complete ever found . This is an amazing piece as this is the most in one skull of its species ever found as only a few skull fragments exist . While it does have a large amount of restore much of lowers are real bone with teeth plus one upper maxilla with teeth are original to one animal. IN other words with 3 jaws 3 of 4 molar teeth pairings are original and the back of cat is original plus one original saber plus part of side of upper. The rest is filled in so % is still about 40% original-estimate. This cat is so amazing and so well prepped it’s a treat to look at. Again while not highly original it’s the best ever found so this is for people who want a one of a kind this is it. For your perfectionists which I know some- do not even try to buy this. I want someone who appreciates this large cat eventually but really do not intend to sell ever Again this is the most complete one of its species ever found so no perfect ones exist and probably never will . This is the most complete ever skull so one of a kind

One Of Kind -  Super Rare Eusmilus US Saber-tooth Cat with Saber

Species: Eusmilus olsontau

Species description: The Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of smaller ones)with razor –sharp sabers and after Dinictis and Hoplophoneus on geological chart which is believed to evolve from one line of hoplophoneus saber cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period for only a few million years from 30-27.7 MYA . These animals had a lot of physical characteristics similar to Hoplophoneus Sicarius except for size , as Eusmilus was the genus for that animal until a short time ago . All these are small saber cats only 5-6 inches long with large sabers and flanges for the size which makes it look like a barbourfelis and a hoplo except for much smaller size .It had only 26 teeth compared to 44 for most saber cats and it was lacking molar 1 talonoid and premolar 2 on the bottom jaw . It was bobcat sized with lynx sized head and was built like Barbourfelis for size (Of course Barbourfelis is much larger ). Long bodied and short legged compared to others, and they ate grazing ungulates including camels and oreodonts. They could open their jaws at a 90% angle . Most of the info on internet is incorrect as below is correct . It did not live 8 million years, just over 2 and did not have a large species in America (only this small one)at least and one in Europe was bigger .
