Item description: 1-10 9.8 Extremely Rare 100% Original Cave Lumbar Vert#3. This is complete with no wear and are unavailable anywhere in the world anymore Anyone who has one doesn’t sell it .The n bone is excellent quality especially for an animal over 45,000 years old . I never had any single verts even though I have one foe a whole animal soon to be released. You just can’t ever see this bone anytime, anywhere . Remember these are from 40 years ago and 45,000 years ago they roamed the earth , and nothing new is being found anywhere so prices will skyrocket on these when no one can ever find any bones to buy . If you search hard you may be able to find other bones of this animal but not this one as they are never found. No restore on these or repair at all so perfect . This is from an animal that is hardly found in the fossil record. These are rarer than Smilodon bones by far as I have many of them . These beasts were 20% larger than the largest Lion and this vert is huge and actually were the same as American Lion which I have a skull.
