This was a complete carnivore, not like bears today, as evidenced by high nitrogen bone concentrations so it was a killer of its time and lasted for 2.8 million years.

Item rating and description: (1-10) *9* Totally Original Short-Faced Bear 2 Canines plus lower jaw parts. These are amazing to offer. No work done at all. The canines are missing part of tip only. This is so unbelievable as no one has this anywhere. This time I outdid myself on rareness as this ranks as the hardest animal to find in fossil records, even greater than La Brea Smilodon, or Dire Wolf. Few of these are present anywhere no matter where it’s found. Few even find a tooth let alone two canines. These represent years of hunting in one package. I don’t need them for my project and I’ve collected for years. I have more requests for this than even cats so here it is. This represents over 20 years of collecting so don’t pass it up 2 canines and lower skull parts this cheap. Each canine alone is worth 300 so this much is a giveaway.
