ONLY 1 IN THE WORLD ANYWHERE- HERE- EARLY MIOCENE BEAR-DOG


Species: DAPHOENDON  BOROCYON ROBUSTUM


Description:  Unknown MORE THAN RARE (NON-EXISTENT except this one) Extinct Species of Bear- Dog of Miocene  existing for a few million years from 23-19 MILLION years ago . It was assigned to amphicyonids . While initially related to bears it is now found they may be basal caniforms . This is one of the most unusual carnivore . They were as tall as a black bear , and moved here from  Eurasia in early Miocene . It weighed 150 kg and combines features of canine and feline predators . It resembled a giant dog with a flexible cat-like body . These bear-dogs with long limbs and specialized in chasing down prey on the open plains. Only two partial mandibles have been found in Nebraska , and a part of a lower jaw in Florida . This is of great scientific importance to everyone, and unlimited value .   It was described in 2008 only so very recent partial finds.

This is of extreme scientific value ,and also is at least  95% original . ONLY one was found that was crushed and 50% so this is a classic. It is so perfect only 2 lower incisors are not original, crack fills , small section of back of one lower jaw , a small section  1” section behind the eyes  is restored . Wow .Words really cant describe these . Who has even another species of this? NO one is the answer in this good of shape . It was gotten from a friend , and I will treasure forever .Its 12” long by 7 “ wide mounted and beautifully prepped with bone quality simply outstanding , and color great . You really can’t value THIS ITEM since not one exists. Beyond a museum piece,  in my private collection. I’m so proud of this piece .I really cant say anymore than here because so little is known of this animal . You won’t find anything under this in google so here is your info .

saber-tooth cat  that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene  Period 30.8MYA -7.2MYA . They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habits and diet , and were solidary predators  hunting an abundant food supply of grazing ungulates including camels  and oredonts . Using their highly developed saber-teeth they would likely sever the blood supply in the neck of their prey in the initial attack. Their sabers are smaller than a dinictis as shown with this specimen  and estimated weight was around 70 lbs . This fossil is so rare it has little written about it .It lived at least 23.6 Million years
This specimen is so big the sabers are much bigger than a dincitis , and one of rarest fossils on earth

Special Massive 14 "Hyaenodon Horridus Complete Skull

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.

It is so pristine just a little restore on saggital crest and one  zygo is seen .It  is so awe inspiring.   I can’t sell it now. Since this is the best of the best and so rare to see,  I doubt I’d sell it ,but this is for people to view to gain a strong appreciation. Enjoy .

These raptor –like dinosaurs were tall at 8 ft and long and they used these claws to obtain meat. This is their “Killing Claw” and is virtually perfect . It has tremendous bone detail including the groove all the way to the perfect tip. It has a perfect shape including a perfect back part of claw with small protrusion point on top so typical of this species, and beautiful dark brown color  , and beautiful lines with no restore and little repair.  This is so large- the largest before this I ever saw was 4” and  I owned it and that sold for 4000 .I’ve seen 3 inch claw of this species   go for $3700 before on ebay so this is a real deal on this specimen . It was found with one break and the only flaw which really is not noticeable is half the claw in back is raised just slightly probably due to lack of pressure on the back . What a find !!!  NO one has large and this good at this price . I bought it from a rancher who found it together. This is a real deal   at this price so it won’t last long .It is worth $1200 per inch this size but for you

Nice  TREX-FEMUR -Huge 53” Long 14”Wide by 8” High  

Species: Tyrannosaurus rex

Species description: One of largest carnivore during dinosaurs age with 12" corner teeth with roots and up to 49 ft long and 15 ft high that lived in western USA – largest in the United States that ever lived and killed and scavenged prey.

Period: Late Cretaceous Period 70-66.5MYA

Geographic strata found: Hell Creek Formation

Geologic location:   Glendive , Montana      

Description and rating :  Find of the Century – TREX FEMUR  . This  ultra rare bone was found by a Rancher , and Id classify it as good  on bone quality. It had all but one end, and that end was placed on from another smaller  REX  . It is a Huge femur for the species overall and shows all the characteristic forms –the end shape, hollow middle , and massive bone. While not perfect as tetonic forces  raised some areas and lowered other bone fragments but it was prepped well and overall restore is very small –less than  5%. Some bone areas are smooth and top quality, others not so great but it is a nice representation of the most feared creature to ever roam this planet.  Who else has this for you to meet your dreams. It’s extremely heavy and displays well only on one side due to pressure points but that side would be the side you want to show the end curves so typical of the species. Displaying flat is the only way to do effectively and safely display this piece. It takes 2 persons to lift and can be crated in foam to send somewhere .This is my first one I prepped or had for sale and it took 4 months with a materials and repair due to some outer bone peeled right off. AS I said one end is the end of another REX but actually the rest was in its entirety except for a few spots on the large end on both sides so it was difficult to work with as most bones this size has multiple natural breaks .I have a great tibia, fibula and metatarsal in my collection but this is so big it needs a person who can put it in a nice display case or lie it flat as now  , and give it its proper due.

Geologic strata:  Hell Creek Formation

Geologic timeframe: 70-66.5 MYA

Item Location-Buffalo , S Dakota

Item rating and description:12 ++10    Complete x-Fine Bone Superb Color  Edmontosaurus Femur 36”Long  .  It has fine dark brown  color, very good   bone quality  throughout and is complete with very little resto just crack and break fills on ends as it came whole in the middle part .It is at  least 95 % original  with all the correct protrusions including the side flange off the middle bone .   Hadrosaurs supposedly got about 30 ft long and this is standard size for a female adult. IT is wide at 10”, and has all the outcroppings of a femur with double disks at one end and a long straight bone on other side with a round  protrusion on other side of long direct ending bone . It is 10 inches high also . This was a hard job to prep, and it took along time to give it all the care due it.. One side was absolutely stunning, while other side needed crack filled at spots with a few small sections of outer bone placed back on . You can only display this monster on one side anyway due to weight. It weighs at least 80 lbs so it needs crated and sent , and can only go UPS due to weigh . This is an awesome piece and anyone will be so proud display it. I know whoever gets this will love it. I have had this for 1 year and received it from a dinosaur hunter in its natural state. I hope you appreciate it as much as myself . I decided to give a dirt low price for a quality piece . It definitely would sell for 2500 plus as my last one signed .

abulous Double Trike Brow Horns with Total Natural Forehead Attachment 66" Long

Species: Triceratops horridus (Renamed Nov 10th Torosaurus which is a mistake in my opinion)

Species description: Large 11 ton herbivore with frill around 6.5 ft head and 1 nose horn with 2 Brow Horns off frill. These got up to 40 tons with skulls 6.5 ft long.

Period: Cretaceous Period 70-66.5 MYA

Geologic strata: Hell Creek formation

Item Location: Livingston, Montana

Item description and rating: 1-12- 13 Top Premium One-Of-A-Kind Double Triceratops Brow Horns with Attachment 66" Long. Quality of this specimen is excellent with parts of left horn very good. This is so fantastic that the right horn and attachment was in one piece with no breaks at all, while other horn had one break. I have never seen one of these as nature doesn't ever normally save over 65 million years the forehead and usually only one horn is even found. These horns are underground finds with great brown color all over with nothing exposed to elements. It also proves nothing in nature is exact as the 2 horns are 27.5" and 26.5" from same animal just as many people have different sized feet by an inch , and it belonged to a adult large female. The horns have 2 excellent sharp tips which is rare also, and diameter on both is 19" at base.  This is about as natural piece you will ever find as 55 inches of it was intact so the slight variation of horn slant and horn size is natural and not induced. I had a few crack fills mostly on left horn as all others was totally  natural. IT took though two weeks of prep time due to matrix on item and heavy awkward slow movement of item to prepare safe. It is transportable and sealed well with penetrant sealant which is the reason for the shiny appearance. This makes it very stable for anyone. I've send out 15 horns the last year safely and this can be put in its jacket with foam to be safe. Originality is almost 100% with nothing more than hole and crack fills which is unheard of . If you want quality this is it. I love this piece and if no one buys it is in my collection forever. I must say this is one of top 5 dinosaur pieces I have by far, and I like it more than any of them. You can see how these horns could easily split open a TREX and tips are not normally sharp like this one. Most brow horns at tip are dull. Horns are much more expensive for us to buy and rarer to find as this year much fewer were found especially thick ones like this. It is extremely heavy - at least 70 lbs. It is professionally prepped well with nice shape especially on one horn, and other very good with slight distortions, but again please remember only one full break on this piece - and even that was naturally fused at an off angle over millions of years. It is a top notch representation of one of the most fascinating of the dinosaurs who could kill TREX. The condition will astound you and cheap.

Rare La Brea Grizzly Bear 2 Lower Jaws with  Canine and Teeth and upper maxilla  with Both Cannes

Species:  Arctodus simus (Bulldog Bear also) or Pleistocene  grizzly bear

Species description:   The largest Bear of all time that stood up to 6 ft Tall at 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 was a killer of its time and lasted for 2.8 million years. More info is listed here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctodus   . or a grizzly similar to todays species  

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

Geological Period :  Middle Pliocene  -Late Pleistocene

Item Location : La Brea Tarpits ,  LA, California

Item rating and description:  13   Totally Original La Brea  Giant Short Face or Grizzly   Bear Upper Maxilla and  Lowers from The Same Animal with Canines . This is so unbelieveable as no one has this anywhere If it is a short face great but actually Grizzly remains from this time frame are even rarer .  Both are one of  hardest animal to find in fossil records even greater than LaBrea Smilodon . Only scant pieces are ever found but here you have from the same individual totally original lower jaws with all  teeth except one canine with no restoration at all from the most famous place on earth for fossils. One mandible is over 9 inches long and complete except small portion of back. The other is 7 inches with all teeth except canine. Then you have the top maxilla and nose area with both sides with many teeth including both canines and pieces of other teeth.  It is 4 inches long by 3.5” wide. Many of teeth have roots and partials. The canines are the largest teeth and both have tips broken.  Of course this came from an early collection in the 50’s from Paul Spinner Collection. I have papers proving they came from this collection, as it was once one of largest La Brea collections anywhere.  3 Canines is so amazing for this creature so you have the most important pieces of the skull in this collection. I’m even throwing in part of a bone probably hand from this creature. This bear died due to loss of larger mammals and man.   No repair no restoration with only upper maxilla glued on / and penetrant sealer to protect. Notice the oil brown patented color for La Brea .   Both possibilities  are being looked at  Currently not sure however 3 parties have said its Short –faced all qualified , and one said grizzly The one that said grizzly Im leaning towards that since he collects bears as well as tons of other rarities , and I trust him completely  .Anyway the canines alone are worth a fortune  from this bear , and I decided to sell very reasonably at...

BEAUTIFUL DEINONYCHUS “TERRIBLE CLAW” THUMB HAND CLAW -120 -100MILLION YEARS OLD
SIMPLY THE RAREST & MOST OUTSTANDING  DINOSAUR  ITEM YOU WILL EVER SEE–

 

Species : DEINONYCHUS Antirrhopus

Species description: The most fearsome raptor under dromaeosaurid and a close relative of the veliciraptor  but found millions of years before  in  present day Montana and Wyoming . This rare animal was so fearsome any nonmeat eater was on the menu like Tetontosaurus. It was 30 million years before other raptors , and had large eyes, long legs was over 11 feet long with tail , had famous claws with 3 fingered hands like allosaurus , and clawed feet with 5 inch long sickle –shaped retractable claw on second toe called the killer claw , for which it is noted.  It had a bite force greater than any living animal today .It shared its life with Saurpelta, Zephrosaurus, and therapod Acrocanthosaurus . Yes these are so rare none of you know of these .These animals lived in subtropical climate like Louisiana today .

 

Geological formation :  Cloverly  Formation 

Geological period:   Late Aptian or Albian   Stage

Geographic Timeframe : 122 MYA -108 MYA  Early   Cretaceous

 

Item Location:     Carbon County, Montana –private ranch

Item rating and description : 13 Unbelievably RARE and Beautiful HIGHLY DETAILED  DEINONYCHUS  2 7/8” (Around the Curve ) Thumb Claw (Ist Hand Claw). Simply no one-no private collector and few museums have this rarity in the world. Both ends and middle is so good it is amazing.  Only small amount of restoration on one side of the tip .Only the tip was broken  .What nature sometimes allows us to see .The proximal end shows the characteristic projections and even slight wear to show bone spongyness. The quality is amazing with blood grooves and fine detail everywhere . The color is lighter . I have only had this dinosaur’s teeth before and they are so rare a silly millimeter goes for over $500 –much more than REX teeth. These claws are almost never  found, and when or if  they are they are not sold   . I dare to say only a few private collectors in the world have a partial claw let alone a complete one . Few museums have complete ones . Its my speciality  to bring you ultra rare items . I can’t ever replace this so may keep it unless you convince me how bad you want it . I just sold a smaller velociraptor claw  for $7000 so how much do you think a rarer Deinonychus claw is worth  . I really can’t find the words for this find . The pictures tell the story

Unbelieveable Beautiful  MONSTER Excellent Serrated   X- Large TREX  Over 5 1/4”(Around the Curve ) POINT   TOOTH


Species: Tyrannosaurus rex

Species description: One of largest carnivore during dinosaurs age with 12" corner teeth with roots and up to 49 ft long and USA own species found in western USA. Very powerful and massively built dinosaur which hunted solitary . It easily downed its prey with quick surprise attacks.

Period: Late Cretaceous Period  70-66.5 MYA

Geographic strata found: Hell Creek Formation

Geologic location: SE Montana  

Description and rating 12 :  Beautiful One- of- a Kind X LARGE Dark Brown POINT TOOTH with Excellent Serrations, Original Tip and High Originality with excellent enamel . Remember these large ones are hardly ever  found.  The enamel and color are so beautiful as a dark brown so typical of Hell Creek .  For a tooth this size an estimated  close to 90% Original is fantastic. The entire back and tip of tooth are original with no repairs except crack fills. While this was broken originally  at 3 spots only , it was well prepped  and  glued back with some restoration one  side only  for about ½” past the tip   and farther down in  middle  for a  section . All the serrations were told to be original but I believe a few in middle of one side were well – prepped and placed there. Even so the amount of serrations is so amazing I can’t hardly believe it .  I have had over 10 of these 5 inches in 5 years and none of them had this great of serrations  as the big ones rarely have them .  My last one had only a few serrations and little enamel and sold for an amazing  $5000 at 80% original and this is much better of a tooth . This tooth even has a natural  tooth morphology with  indentation of tooth next door which does happen often  , and maintains all the enamel  everwhere . I would classify this large tooth as very good as I know how tough it is to find perfect large teeth . The others I’ve had don’t compare to this .You can never find these more original and if you do  it costs 2000 per inch plus so $9000 at least so take a half priced that k looks beautiful that is not perfect but so well  -prepped  it looks like it’s perfect .  The lighter color pictures are just how light reflects as tooth is dark brown. Simply amazing to get a tooth this size at this price . I hunt this area yearly but it was found by a friend who regularly hunts the ranch .

SUPER LARGE TREX 5"+ POINT TOOTH

Species: Tyrannosaurus rex

Species description: One of largest carnivore during dinosaurs age with 12" corner teeth with roots and up to 49 ft long and USA own species found in western USA. Very powerful and massively built dinosaur which hunted solitary . It easily downed its prey with quick surprise attacks.

Period: Late Cretaceous Period 70-66.5 MYA

Geographic strata found: Hell Creek Formation

Geologic location: NW South Dakota

Description and rating: 12++++. ONE-OF–A–KIND X-LARGE 5+" TREX POINT TOOTH. This truly is a once in a lifetime find, and I have seen none larger in 15 years or in as good as shape . Remember these teeth are hardly ever found due to size, and second this tooth has never been broken in 65.5 Million years and the larger they are the more improbable this occurs so this is a dream. SIZE, shape, tip, color, and whole piece are perfect, which in itself is the best you can ask for with this size tooth . But this one has very good enamel on almost all of one side except for a light small spot noticeable , and about 2" of very good enamel on the other side with rest good on that side. This is better than any one sold ever according to my sources. Serrations are not pronounced but evident in 75% of top larger curve –all except small area close to tip and a nic in the middle . On smaller curve under even better at about 80% with only ½ " in middle missing one area. Again serrations are not large but visible as you can tell from pics and on one this side almost unheard of. In fact a close friend found one in 2005 and was largest one ever on ebay, and there 5" had no serrations and about same enamel and sold for $6600. It even has a COA and x-rays slight darker areas that could be some restore is only 5% of the tooth on one side and all white on other side. Just a little darker for 5% so maybe 100% natural. Also If perfect this would go for over $10,000 (2 thousand and inch) and unaffordable and you would never have the opportunity to get one . Anyway my price is actually cheap for this treasure at a little over $1000 an inch. I owned this tooth and sold it and loved it so much at my request bought it back. I have had a lot of calls for the big ones and you will never find one bigger in my opinion. THIS IS A BIG-ONE.

Item Description: 12 + This is an ULTRA RARE Unbelievable Spinosaurus Complete Section of foot including metatarsal and 3 toe bones (Phalanx) which is 22" long from a large adult with all bones articulated all found at same spot. The claw is a 4" claw. All of these bones are becoming rarer and rarer but to get all bones of entire section of foot including claw is unheard of. All are natures own with about 20% of only one bone (second phalanx) restored. A foreign dealer gave this up reluctantly and the claw is original with some compression only. This is a prize piece that you will never see. Imagine a TREX whole section of foot with every bone in that section or phalanx. The claw alone is worth the bulk of the amount.

Item rating and description: 12++ Beautiful RARE Full Articulated Spinosaurus Foot with 4 Foot claws with largest about 3 1/8 inches (15 bone set) with minimal restore. This is a prize few people have in the world which comes from rarely found carch claws and bones all in excellent condition. It is from a smaller dinosaur which grew to lengths bigger than TREX – Anyway this is the first full foot of this therapod I have ever seen and I mounted it articulated on an oak board for display. It is one of a kind and African therapods are getting harder and harder to find as per the foremost finders informed me recently. This is from a highly respected Sahara finder and I just had to have it. This is another of my prize pieces if it does not sell I keep it forever and will admire it for years to come. The claws alone are worth my price as they have appreciated due to rareness.

It was described as a very good tooth that was 3rd tooth back on lower jaw by Pete Larson on a recent trip.  By being this tooth it is very long at end and wide also with both over 1.5 inches .Serrations on  top side perfect and serrations on bottom side very good with only a little natural wear on a few. Restoration  only in small area on top of tooth and is difficult to see. It was professionally prepped and crack fills in areas occurred even though no full complete breaks are evident. I have sold 5 large TREX teeth this year and this is the best by far. It is close to perfect with beautiful enamel. The larger the tooth usually means lower the quality but not on this beaut.  The 4 inches is on one side and 4.5 inches on the other. I had a 5 incher not near as nice sell for $5200 this year. Anyway I will let pics do talking.

Rare 95% Original Oligocene Hyracodon Running Rhino Skull 14.5" Long

Species: Hyracodon (Running Rhino)

Species Description: Hyraodon is an extinct First Rhinoceros on western plains of Oligocene pony sized which had a large skull for size of body. It was a herbivore and differed very little from early primitive horses. even though dentition resembled later rhinos. I inhabited open forests and wooded stepps and turned from Browsing foliage to grazing grass. It was a relative to largest land mammal ever Paraceratherium 26 ft tall.

Geological Formation: White River Formation

Geological Period: 32-26 MYA

Item Location: Pennington County, South Dakota

Item rating and description: 12 Rare Oligocene American Running Rhino Hyracodon 14" Skull. This is the first one I ever had and whole skulls are almost impossible to find. As you can tell I love Oligocene and this is a rare animal like a horse but heavy. It ran well and had no horns but did look like subhyracodon with a protrusion hanging from eyes forward. It is 95% original and is really gorgeous in back of skull and the front with all teeth original and only a small few areas of restoration which you cant tell. Bone quality is top notch as well as teeth. The one in back is exceptional also. While pieces are found a complete skull almost never occurs and I have never seen another whole skull so if you want a skull few people have don’t wait on this one. I can't discount this one as I try to keep them low as it is. Anyway if you haven't heard of this animal that is because no one knows of it so here it is.
