HIGHLY ORIGINAL BEAUTIFUL HUGE 17” AMERICAN LION SKULL From ALASKA-ONE-OF-A-KIND NO WHERE ON EARTH

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion (American LION)

Species Description : The American lion evolved from the earlier Panthera leo fossilis, which I have from Europe, and this skull is believed to be the best specimen ever found that old. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first came to Alaska over Bering Strait with earlier lions as old as 500,000 years old even though only bits and pieces up to 350,000 years have been found. Also DNA shows this to be identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species in my opinion. This is the largest Lion that ever lived much larger than African Lions with skulls up to 16-18 inches over 15% larger. It is roamed in Alaska, California at La Brea and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear which I also have a skull.

Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 30,000

Geographic time: 60,000-30,000 years ago

Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Fairbanks, Alaska

Item rating and description : 1-10 *10* Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion is . Its 17” Long as measured around the upper curve from back of incisors to back tip of sagittal crest . This is huge. The skull is so complete bone is at least 97% or more of the animal. I have the entire skeleton also that is being prepped and close to done. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as its rarer than Smilodon material, and I love saber-tooth cats. The American lion and the Cave Lion are one in the same just some genius wanted to put another species classification as soon as it crossed into Alaska 340,000 years ago from the Bering Strait. However rarely are ever found over 60,000 years old . This one appears to be at least 60,000 years old . No museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . If you have one send pics.The teeth were repaired and some from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present and real . I don’t want to even find fault with this skull as it was done by the nation’s best prepper, my dear friend who is the smartest man in the world who knows everything on skulls of cats. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this and who even has partials of this. You would have to be an unhappy person to even try to find something wrong here. I only see beauty and you will too I’m sure. To be it’s the best ever found. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skull anywhere. Only crack fills and even parts were American Lion. This skull makes so happy as I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better, not even the first best original lion I have the upper that is fantastic also. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. It was highly original from one cat but more American lion skull parts plus some modern lion used so no resin . You can’t even tell of crack fills which makes this so amazing . I venture to say this is the best American lion skull anywhere . It gets better –the skeleton was done by the same person and is virtually complete American lion from a couple animals the same size. It took years to get this assembled and 6 years to get this skull. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than normal .Minimal restore and repair is all that has happened here. It will be in my collection for a long time even though I have many people would pay a fortune for this. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. You can’t even put a price on this as it’s priceless, but everything is for sale sometime maybe if a huge amount is offered in later years Ill relent. But that is years away. I tried to put words on this but this is undescribeable so look at pics. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. NOT FOR SALE Part Of Skeleton Not for sale

No Where Else on Earth-Almost Totally Original Beautiful American Lion Skeleton ( Skull -Alaska)

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion

Species Description : The American lion evolved from the earlier Panthera leo fossilis, which I have from Europe, and this skull is believed to be the best specimen ever found an American Lion.. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first came to Alaska over Bering Strait with earlier lions as old as 500,000 years old even though only bits and pieces up to 350,000 years have been found.

Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 30,000

Geographic time: 60,000-30,000 years ago

Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Fairbanks, Alaska, Florida –verts and ribs

Item rating and description : 1-10 *11 Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion Skeleton is . It’s 11 ft 9 inches long and if tale wasn’t up it would be over 12 ft long. Its amazing 56 ” high also with 28” at widest . It is 99% Original bone from no more than 4 American Lion individuals . Keep in mind no more than maybe 10 exist in the world and this is one of best except La Brea tarpits . I called them. They have 5 but not one is from one animal but many put together from bones . Mine all the verts and ribs are one animal. The 17” skull is from one, and the inner major bones are all from same lion also. Anyway the feet are from another one. So this is by far one of best American Lions in the world by far. The skull is 99 % original bone and according to many many top people in the field It’s maybe the best anywhere. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as it’s rarer than Smilodon material and I love saber-tooth cats. No one has this, not even the American natural History Museum as they have a skull only. I feel like the luckiest person in the world as I’ll enjoy for years. Skulls are unheard of and bones also. My best friend a cat expert who does books, has all the sabercats, but not one American Lion. The American lion skeleton is the most prized fossil in the world . Even the claws are huge modern lion as no American lion exists and this took a long time to get huge claws . The sheaths are all original sheaths from American lions some repaired with other lion sheaths to make them whole A few sheaths are have modern lion parts but mostly America Lion .It took me 10 years to gather 3-4 animals to do this . I say this is one of best anywhere ever done . I will be enjoying this for years. This one appears to be at least 60,000 years old . NO museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . The teeth canines are all original teeth . A few were repaired. I searched the entire country for years to get the right skeleton with many wasted bones that didn’t work The measurements of all the bones matches a 17 “ female skull. The teeth were repaired and just 2 from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present. I don’t want to even find fault with this skull and skeleton because there is so little not original . It should be looked at whole as its so good. Any you find it would be lucky to find a 50% skeleton with rest fake bone. This is 98% at least . Basically only the shoulder blades has any amount of restore at all as it was done by the nation’s best prepper, my dear friend who is the smartest man in the world who knows everything on skulls of cats. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this . You would have to be an unhappy person to even try to find something wrong here. I only see beauty and you will too I’m sure. To be it’s the best ever found. Unfortunately, I don’t have it at my home for some time is the only negative but hope to few it in a few years . The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skeleton anywhere. I can’t believe it . Its too amazing I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than normal It will be in my collection for a long time even though I have many people would pay a fortune for this. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. You can’t even put a price on this as it’s priceless, but everything is for sale sometime maybe if a huge amount is offered in later years Ill relent. But that is years away. I tried to put words on this but this is undescribeable so look at pics. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. Its mine forever to look at. NO trying to buy it please You cant assign a value . Nothing was spared including huge costs to me to make this all Lion . In fact it costs me 15,000 for claws and American Lion Sheaths alone -extremely rare due to huge size of claws just like an American lion-some partial American lion claws were inside sheaths so those were kept intact also . It’s being stored at a warehouse in Maryland There are again only a few in the World outside of LaBrea Tarpits and they are also from a variety of American Lions Displayed in jumping attacking position . Value minimum of $500,000 Not for sale . Plan on keeping many years as if your a fossil lover nothing beats this

If offered $500,000 Id probably sell no less

BEYOND FANTASTIC - Most Desired Fossil on The Planet - LARGE LA BREA TAR PITS DIRE WOLF 13.75”

Species: Dire wolf (Canis dirus)

Species Description: It was closely related to Gray wolf in many features but it is not direct ancestor of any species today . IT became extinct 10,000 years ago with wooly mammoth . IT was larger than Gray Wolf averaging 5 ft in length and weighing 150-175 lbs . Legs of Dire Wolf was shorter and sturdier than those of gray wolf and the brain case was smaller to than the gray wolf. These were only found in California and Florida.

Geological timeframe: Pleistocene 2 MYA -10,000

Location: La Brea Tar Pits , LA California USA

Description and Rating: (1-10) **10** SPECTACULAR AMAZING LA BREA TAR PITS HIGHLY ORIGINAL HUGE DIRE WOLF 13.75” Skull . I would say this is one of a kind but I have two of them . I haven’t seen a La Brea Dire Wolf in years until I saw one this year that was 50% real and never saw one this good except the other one I have .. This is so wonderful I can’t find the words to express my amazement at the quality of this specimen. It is highly original and would estimate conservatively 80-85% teeth plus most of upper skull bone original .. The skull is amazing. It has only restore at small amount in back above condyles on sagittal crest, one zygo, little on back of lower jaws ,fill between pieces , and that’s it . The condyles are real. The teeth are amazing .Words just can’t describe this piece . It was so difficult to prep because normal air compression work would have caused the color to change as it was so fragile and the most difficult prep job a top prepper ever did . It took one year to complete. It is just spectacular . Even the zygos are mostly original on this animal. It has repair but teeth except incisors original , and little need repair on these . They are wonderful . This was of course from an old collection and was laying around for probably over 50 years before the government took over ownership . I’m so pleased to own this and regard it as in a league of its own.LaBrea just isn’t available anymore , and if anyone does have one they don’t sell it . Notice the patented dark brown color. This is the original color in an area of high concentration of oil as some are lighter. Well I can’t say more on this as words are not adequate to do this justice so maybe the pictures will. This is darker than my other one.

Price : $32,000 was personal collection for years

The One-the Only Great 1st GIANT SHORT-FACED BEAR

Species: Arctodus pristinus(earlier than simus)Lesser Shortfaced bear

Species description: The largest Bear of all time that stood up to 6 ft Tall at shoulder and 8 ft tall and 9 ft long , and weighed 1800 lbs much larger than grizzlies . In fact at one time the largest mammalian terrestrial carnivore known as tremarctine bears or running bears endemic to North America and Europe . This was a complete carnivore not like bears today as evidenced by high nitrogen bone concentrations so was a killer of its time and lasted for 2.8 million years. More info is listed here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctodus . Largest of all Bears

Geological Timeframe : 1.8Million Years-1.5M years agoBlancan/Irvingtonian

Geological Period : Early Pleistocene 1.8MYA

Item Location: Columbia County, Florida

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 Maybe the only True Pristinus Short-Faced Bear 12.25 inches by 8 “ wide and 7” Tall Skull in the World. This is so unbelieveable as no one has this anywhere in this condition. This time I outdid myself on rareness as this ranks as the hardest animal to find in fossil records even greater than LaBrea Smilodon. Only scant pieces are ever found normally but here you have from sections a Complete Skull with little restoration. Most is on backs of lowers but I challenge you to find more. Even the zygos are short-faced bear. It is a perfect match on all defining characteristics of pristinus also with a written booklet with documents prepared for you showing each shortface bear and the differences. This is rarer than Simus. Try to find one anywhere as you won’t. I don’t know of any except partial one at Florida Museum. It’s so hard to find many paleontoligists can’t hardly tell but by this notebook you can tell easy. This took lots of work and time so you bear lovers better come see this one. All teeth are real shortface bear also so to have all teeth 100% real is amazing. Many crack fills occurred on this specimen. Your looking at history here and maybe the only 95% short-faced bone one anywhere. This grew into Simus-the larger one . I still can’t believe it. Look at this shortfaced bear. It is large. Simus evolved from this totally. You will not find this animal anywhere but at this site forever as it is not currently for sale. I figure the value is somewhere around $50,000 but you may call me and try to convince me you love it. It probably will end up at auction for much more than above quoted. If you love to follow bear history this is so great. This was prepped by one of top bear experts in the world also . This skull is going to auction soon so people can pay more a lot more This is one of kind with a complete info on originality Plus so off to auction unless Call me to talk 706-235-2694

Price $32000 was personal item
