SPECTACULAR EOCENE “DAWN HORSE” EOHIPPUS SKULL HIGHLY ORIGINAL!!!

Species: HYRACOTHERIUM or Eohippus (58-51 MYA)

Species description: This horse is so small it barely reached 14” tall (Similar to a small dog). These herbivores lived from grazing on foliage, fruit, herbs and berries. This animal is the rarest of rare compared to other fossils in the world. They had 4 toes front and 3 in back. It looked like a modern horse except much, much smaller. Forefeet and hind feet had pads similar to dogs. It had a short neck, back raised in slight arch and teeth had three incisors, one canine, four premolars, and three grinding molars on each side of the jaw.

Geological strata: Willwood Formation

Geological period: Early Eocene Period 58-51 MYA

Item Location: Close to Powell, Wyoming in 1970’s

Item rating and description: (1-10) 10**Off the Charts AMAZING FIND*** One-of-a Kind Eohippus “Dawn Horse” Skull 7” Long Highly Original. While small, great things come in small packages. This horse is the most sought after herbivore skull due to its improbability of even being found. This excellent condition is just so unbelieveable, it is simply amazing!! While the top is compressed down, the entire top has original bone with only crack fills due the compression. It was unable to be inflated for fear of breaking the skull so I decided not to take a risk with nature’s spectacular splendor. The lower is original except for the incisors - as these are never found – too small and fragile plus the backs. This was so expertly prepared it looks 100% original (and almost is). This period of 50 Million years ago has hardly any material ever uncovered after the dinosaurs when Terror Birds (that are also unbelievably rare) ruled and ate these guys for snacks. This one survived for posterity, so little horsey, you made it through 50 million years. The beauty, detail, and bone quality of this animal, again, is simply fantastic!!! I would say 90% of the skull is original. This starts my horse bonanza as you’ll never see a more astonishing piece! I have almost all that have been found in a line up so amazing. Just one glance and I had to have it as it is so outstanding. No one, except one that I have heard has this. There is nothing like this anywhere in the world. Here it is fossil lovers. This is a priceless piece for a collection!!!! I hope you all enjoy looking at this piece!!!! s

Rating and description1- 10 8 This is a lower jaw repaired glued together. This was made into a full one from 2 animals for appearance. It came out nice, and I did make price much less due to that.

A whole head with antlers go for 60,000. WOW I’ve wanted this for many years. It has no restoration at all just a break with a little filler to repair it . While only found in Europe these are top collection pieces for USA.It is a treasure for you herbivore fans and deer lovers, plus the deer hunters to show a huge rack on the males. I can’t get any more of these so better buy these. No restore at all on this animal. Great price as I have extras.

Species description: Extinct Largest Species of Lion ever to exist a full 25% larger10-12 feet and 840Lbs closely resembling the current species in Africa . It was the largest carnivore except the Giant short –faced bear which are virtually nonexistent in the fossil records . It was much larger than the Smilodon Saber-tooth cat. There has been 100 specimens in La Brae found but only a handful elsewhere.

Item location: Yukon Territories in Alaska

Item rating and description: 1-10 10 WOW Rarer than Smilodon Largest US Pleistocene Predator Ever Giant American Lion Left Jaw ( 10”x 5” High )with all Teeth Inc. Canine except smaller premolar probably lost during its life . This jaw is amazing with no restoration of any type found in a Gold Mine . The canine is around 3” long with more root under the jaw. I can’t see any flaw in this jaw. It’s a beautiful reddish-brown . With my desire for only the extreme rare ITEMS , I have to admit this is so awesome I went beyond the usual. This is a huge find, and I’m one of only a few to have had even one of these. In fact I’ve sold many but this is oneof my best ever. This one is so special as it has never had the teeth out of the sockets as most are placed in from other cats to make complete. . It hasn’t been restored at all . The canine is so original nothing has been done to even seal the fine cracks down the tooth. Perfect with all teeth perfect , and I don’t even see wear . It was protected by the Yukon permafrost for at least 10,000 years. This animal is much rarer than Smilodon which complete skulls if you can find one go for close to $100,000. You get one quarter of the animal for not much compared to this. IM just amazed to have such a jaw from the same animal with all teeth intact after maybe 50,000 or more years . .This is a great investment . I used to sell these for 7500 at least . This one is worth much more than this but I sell under retail as much as I can. As a true cat lover I can’t resist it .

Spectacular Giant Short-Faced Bear…Rarest Fossil in the World Complete Claw (2)!!

Species: Arctodus simus (Bulldog Bear also)

Species description: The largest Bear of all time that stood up to 6 ft Tall at the shoulder, and weighed 1800 lbs, 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 it was a killer of its time and lasted for 2.8 million years. More info is listed here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctodus

Geological Timeframe: 3 Million Years to 11,000 years ago

Geological Period:
Middle Pliocene - Late Pleistocene

Item Location: Marion Co., Fl 100,000 to 200,000 years old Simus.

Item rating and description: (1-10) *9* Giant Short-Faced Bear Entire Claw 1.70“Long. This is one of the hardest animals 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. Only scant pieces are ever found but here you have a rare piece. Claws if found have no sheath but these are wonderful. It has slight repair. Each claw of a Short-Faced bear is worth over $ 1000, and this is so nice. Keep in mind, even one claw is an amazing find for the animal. I’ve only had a few partial bones from this animal ever and plan on getting some skull pieces now.

Species: ARCHAEOTHERIUM unknown Rarest pig in the world

Species description: Carnivore Pig ARCHAEOTHERIUM

It could also dig for roots and tubers. It had an elongated skull with long bony knobs beneath the eyes and on the lower jaws. It also had long spines on its thoracic vertebrae over the shoulders and a small brain, and often obtained lengths over 7’ long. It was 5-6 ft tall at shoulder. Its jaw could snap shut quickly and kill any animal during its time and was highly successful. It hunted in packs and could run off a huge hyaenodon. It also was a 1000 km mass.

Item rating and description: (1-10) *9.5* – MONSTER Rarest of Rare Archaeotherium “Terrible PIG” Entelodont 31.5” X 14.5” wide w Neck Verts. It has an extra hood which is never found so it measures an unreal 31.5”. This extremely large for its species with known archaeotherium largest length 24”. It is the animal highlighted in BBC Prehistoric Beasts DVD, which is a must for interested parties. A copy is provided free with this. This is simply amazing. The quality is absolutely top premium for an animal that no one can find hardy anywhere, and it has and has almost all original teeth and only a small section of the cheek restored. It is so top quality for the species and also possesses 3-4 original cervical vertebrae attached as well as a few other bones. IT is a complete on side and other side embedded in matrix.This is for only top collectors who want an item you can’t get anywhere. This is the animal shown in BBC Walking with Prehistoric Beasts so this creature alive. Just so you know what you have- archaeotherium can be found very occasionally and this hardly exists in fossil records let alone one this size. The last one was 20” long and sold for a fortune and was way undervalued. The canines are 4 inches on top long and 3” on bottom, and most teeth original. This is truly amazing and a top treasure, and if not sold will be with me forever. No one but myself offers this for sale in this condition. This is from a museum that closed. If you read this far you want it, so look at pics and buy quickly or lose it. Top collectors will appreciate it so get it. Before someone else. I do not expect to ever get one this quality and size again This is probably a record size Archaeotherium so what are you waiting for! This is a missing link as its between mortorni and daedon Its one of a kind

100% Original Pleistocene (10,000-20,000 years) Walrus Skull w Huge Tusks

Species: Odobenus rosmarus divergens Species description: Pleistocene Walrus definitely found in that time. The Walrus is a large flippered marine mammal that lived and do live in Artic temperatures. It is the sole surviving member of the Odobenidae. It’s noted for its prominent tusks, whiskers, and bulkiness. It was a contemporary with the wooly mammoth, and can weigh up to 4500 lbs which is amazing. It was able to survive the extinction event due to finding ice areas away from prehistoric peoples. The males and female have tusks, with males usually bigger. Pacific species are larger by about 20% as is this. Geological strata: 20,000 - 10,000 years ago Geological Period: Pleistocene Item location: NE of NOME, Alaska in Bering Strait in Water in Sediment Item rating and description: (1-10) 10. Attention Mammal Lovers…100% Original!! NO restoration or repairs. Found in water in sediment in Alaska’s Bering Strait preserving one of earths premier fossils!! This is an Amazing Pleistocene Mammal with Full 15” Skull, 12” Height with Tusks 14” long. This one is from Alaska found in water, and what is so spectacular I bought it because it’s 100% original never touched by a prepper in any way. All teeth, skull with original lowers and the tusks were intact, never repaired, or even placed back in skull. As it stands is as it was found. The skull is so firm it didn’t need penetrant sealant or bringing out color of any type. The tusks are truly amazing in width and color with 14” long tusks. The skull was identified as a male by an expert. He said many skulls, people elongate the tusks by putting modern ivory or putting other tusks in the upper jaw, with not original lower jaws. This animal was totally whole with original jaws plus original tusks in the skull just as they are today. It was bought from a very respectable European dealer who found this animal. I saw two skulls in Tucson, both long tusks – one asking $80,000 and eventually sold. Another sold also way over my price. This is an adult specimen. Prices have skyrocketed in recent years on these due to the fact that they are so attractive and rare. Check on the web or any store. You can’t find these and if you do they want huge prices. The colorful ivory tusks makes this so attractive with black, tan, rust-red, white areas intermingled. Anyway here are the pics. If you’re a high end collector… You really want this specimen!!! I’m not even a walrus lover but this one caught my attention!!!

X Nice Large Colorful Hyaenodon horridus 13.5” Skull 9” Agape Open Mouth Skull

AUCTION ITEM

Species: Hyaenodon horridus

Species description: This was the largest species of Hyaenodon in North America with massive high saggital crest in back of head, long narrow snout, short neck and long body and tail. It was the top single carnivore although a number of Terrible Pigs could drive one off. This was the largest carnivore for over 20 Million years called a Creodont and it hunted alone not in packs like its smaller 3 related species . These creodonts shared a specialized dentition commonly found in meat eating mammals with shearing structures called carnassal-teeth. This one species was the size of a bear and had 1000 lbs of pressure per bite , and was more dangerous and a lot bigger than any saber-tooth cat of its time a loner).Male specimens show grinding marks on their teeth which means tooth-grinding was used as intimidation with animals. The last creodont went extinct in America about 23 MYA but lasted to the Miocene in Asia . This is the rarest fossil of the 4 species of Creodont by far.

Geological strata: White River Formation

Geological period: Oligocene Period 35- Early Miocene23 MYA

Item description and rating1-10 *9* Pretty Colorful Highly Original Rare Largest 30 MYA COMPLETE Hyaenodon horridus Skull with Teeth Morphology. This skull is fine with great teeth with all original except a few does have repairs . The canines plus all the teeth are original. It was found whole with exception of zygos so no full breaks, and it is simply an amazing quality piece in all regards including bone quality, beautiful color , and an adult . It’s such great bone quality it was a specimen that was very healthy so it met a quick death somehow possibly by a number of terrible pigs which were bigger, however, no bite marks on the head are evident. These got as large as 15” and are extremely desirable as few are found. Some restoration on skull occurred but expertly prepped so it looks great. Back of skull, zygos and few others like back of lowers are rstored. Quality is still x fine. Since I can’t put in words how lovely this animal is even with retore it’s so nice. IM sending pictures of this specimen and some lucky guy will get a price at great cost .It’s for an investment as this piece will grow lots in value . The unusual color alone makes this a huge buy. I lowered priced wanted on this to close to cost. The great ones go for 7500 and I have one of those now if you want almost perfection . It is open mouth on a great display and it is so amazing. Don’t ask to lower price as it is worth much more to me. This is an amazing specimen for this price. These go for 8000 and I have one that is special almost all original . This one isn’t that much lower so if you want an hyaenodon this is the one. It has a great display. I need the funds for something is reason it’s so low for a quick sale These are gigantic animals , the next largest in Oligocene with terrible pigs at top.
