Beautiful Super Rare Juvenile 6.5" Juvenile Hoplophoneus Saber-tooth Cat Skull

Species: Hoplophoneus primaevus

Species description: The long-legged Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of larger one) with razor-sharp sabers and the second earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period 35 MYA -23 MYA. These animals had a lot of physical characteristics similar and exact to Smilodon including famous saber-guards and similar sabers while smaller. They stood at over 2 ft tall the size of a large bobcat, and were more of a group predator with a close knit families as evidenced by some hoplos found together in death while overall very rare species hunting an abundant food supply of grazing ungulates including camels and oreodonts. Using their highly developed saber-teeth they would likely sever the blood supply in the neck of their prey in the initial attack.

Geological strata: White River Formation

Item location: Shannon County, SD

Item rating and description: 12++  Extremely Rare Gorgeous  Juvenile 85% plus Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Skull  6½" long with 2.10" Sabers. This cat was described by the best prepper  in the world  as a top notch cat  and the first juvenile he has ever seen. Juvenile Hoplos are hardly ever found while you can find them in the first saber-tooth cat - dinictis species. Not only rare but exceptional quality  with teeth original except some bottom incisors, back sagittal crest, and one partial zygo and back of one lower jaw. One saber complete with slight repair and one mostly saber (Left one) with more repair and some restore Color, detail, and completeness is above reproach. The white color with lines is usual for these animals, which is how they looked close to death. The lower jaw on one side was all there which is really rare. Most of the teeth are original. This cat is the most highly desired vertebrate fossil in the world due to its resemblance to Smilodon mostly saber guards, and one of early cats. The upper skull is outstanding. The last one at auction adult went for $12,000, but this one is very very rare as juveniles are not found. This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. I sold 12 adults in one year so if you're a true collector and know how rare this is, you will know what a deal  this truly is. I sell hoplos cheaper than anyone for the same quality.  For a collector who wants all the species this one will not come around again-a juvenile so don’t hesitate or it's gone. This one a procrastinator will never get as I get tons of people who want these before I even get these. I decided to let first come first serve on this instead of going to anyone first so all of you can get this.

IT was a herbivore , and little known it is the longest living dinosaur over Jurassic and Cretaceous . It was found in late Cretaceous Indian soil. It is a weird looking dinosaur compared to others .It is considered the longest living dinosaur ever due to India having this creature up to 65 MYA so it is at least 100 Million Years Old since it first appeared.

It is color is red, gray brown and white intermixed which makes it so attractive. It comes on a nice strong metal display.   It is heavy and thick at some areas and it is a real beauty .  I normally do not sell stegosaurus material because it is not found for private collections hardly ever and is much more valuable than REX, Allosaurus, or any other dinosaur so I’ll gladly keep this if not appreciated. I have looked for stegosaurus items for years and have actually only found and collected a few pieces at my site. I have a tail spike, and a rare dorsal plate from its grandfather miosi,  and consider this just as valuable. I don’t sell those and I had to think long before deciding to sell this piece .The quality is so good with virtually no or minimal   restore as crack fills  .Don’t wait on this one or it will be gone. Top collectors only to apply. I will not reduce price on this one because it’s worth so much.  You will look for decades to find one this good if one is found so save yourself time and call me. It is as unbelievable find. I appreciate this fossil so much it is at top of anyone’s collection. Be quick on this one. Procrastinators’ please don’t waste anyone’s time as it will be gone.

Famous George Lee  Juvenile 14.5” Entolodont ” TERRIBLE PIG”(Archaeotherium) Wall Mount Skull-Top Carnivore of its time


Species: ARCHAEOTHERIUM  Ingens  or MORTONI

Species description: Largest Species of Entelodont and Largest Carivore Pig of all time. It was a relative of theungulates  and a cow- sized predator with large canines. They ate camels , oreodonts , brontotheres ,and horses on the Oligocene fields. 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 8 ‘. 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. One unnamed species lived during early Miocene. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaeotherium   

Geological strata: Brule  Formation White River Badlands

Geological period: Oligocene Period  34-23 MYA 

Item location: Badlands,  South Dakota

 

Item rating and description : 12    Nature’s Finest Juvenile   Entelodont  Archaeotherium “Terrible Pig” 14.5” Skull  found  many years ago  in South Dakota . George Lee is the top collector of mammals of all time and I was fortunate enough to get this from his estate.  These small juveniles are hardly ever found and now I have two, and the person who knows the most over a 25 year career hunting these as only seen 3 other juveniles ever.  What a nice specimen, which is not large for the species but large if you consider any other carnivore of its time. This is the most sought after mammal now after all  the BBC Prehistoric Beast immortalized publication tape, which comes with this beautiful creature.   This is probably a female do to the size of the cheek s as it showed sexual dimorphism, and cheeks of females and young were smaller in size. This was the most feared creature of the Oligocene Period with hyaenodons. It has all original to this animal teeth , upper and lower jaw . All the teeth are to this pig so all original but 2 are repaired with unoriginal roots  so combined with quality of bone makes this pig great.  The one zygomatic arch is original, and so little restore in upper it’s not worth mentioning and back of lower has a little also  . Any restoration you can’t see so it is spectacular. The   brown beautiful color of skull makes this piece so desireable and    is so appealing and with the color of the teeth having a  shiny tint  as to protect them.. This is a chance to get a great price on an animal that is highly publized and also a chance to hang it on your wall s to avoid any space requirements  . No one can say I don’t have room. These animals made mince meat of the saber cats of the time. This is your chance to get a quality beautiful specimen  from a top collector for less money than you  can ever believe  I Love Terrible pigs as they were vicious little buggers .

Amazing All Natural Beautiful Red Brown Dark Smilodon Fatalis 1/2 Skull Back Braincase Killed By A Human Projectile From Florida

Species: SMILODON Fatalis Saber-tooth CAT

Species description: Well known Smilodon genus sabercat is the same known from La Brea Tar pits in California and Florida with largest canines of any saber-tooth cat. Well known for killing mammoths and larger than a lion with 13 inch skulls and sabers that got to 13 inches including root. You know the animal but if you want to google it for more info please do.

Geological period: This one 40,000 years - species  1.8 MYA -10,000 years

Item location: Suwannee County, Florida

Item rating and description: 12 +++++  Totally Natural  Beyond Rare  Smilodon Fatalis  Whole Back Of Skull(Cranium)  from  the real king of beasts - the Smilodon. The dimensions are 6 ¾" Long, approx 6.5" wide, and 6" Tall. The rareness alone of any Smilodon material make this a top collector piece, but to have a ½ Skull is a chance of a lifetime, and now I have two so one must go. This is such a treat because it has a hole in its cranium which was probably what killed it. There are arrows and other sharp implements found close so this was a case that one was killed by a man of some form - homo sapiens in all probability. It was found in a narrow fissure in limestone which accounts for a few bone surface rubs on the ends. It is complete from back of eyes with no restoration, beautiful color dark rust brown and all parts of back skull present while jagged in some cases at the ends but almost all bone present. Brain cavity present and fully inflated with. The strong, red, brown some light pigmentation is totally stunning. NO compression or distortions, as well as occipital condyle, and lower jaw quadrates . Keep in mind the last Smilodon sold for $380,000 with the front teeth, and this back is by far the best you will ever see if you ever see one. It even has no repairs.  This is a way for someone who loves smilodon material to purchase a valuable top ½ of head for an economical price - and one with a fantastic story. It really is so good to get a half of the world's best known predator. It is same species that is found in LaBrea Tar pits. I can say so much about his piece but you already know how valuable this is. While my other one is finished slightly better due to repairs , this one was found the way you see so for all you original eccentrics  this is for you. Skull  ear,eye and air space detail is amazing also. My other one is not totally natural. This one is...

UNREAL TOP & FRONT TRICERATOPS 20" x 12" SKULL

Species: Triceratops horridus

Species description: Large 11 ton herbivore with frill around 6.5 ft head and 1 nose horn with 2 Brow Horns off frill.

Period: Cretaceous Period 70-66.5 MYA

Geological strata: Hell Creek Formation

Location: Glendive, Montana

Item Rating and description: 12+++ WOW Rarely FOUND Very Special  HUGE Triceratops 20" FRONT SKULL Weighing 40 LBS and 12" wide. It is also 8" high. I was delighted to find this of upmost bone quality with all the details and ridges of this piece. Quality, color, and detail is so great on this one, and it was the toughest large piece I ever had to ID. I even sought the opinion of an expert. At first I thought it was Triceratops skull but then maybe large part of a REX Ilium but the distinct blood grooves always means triceratops. It is heavy and allows you to have a rare piece and not take up too much space for a huge animal. It looks like the entire section from top of head to close to the beak. The size of this animal had to be huge - probably  a 6 ft long with frill. You will like this piece, and to me it's like a work of art. It was sealed very well though and it  should be very secure after using much penetrant sealant, which is very expensive per bottle and it took almost a 16 Oz bottle for this monster skull enclosure. The color is dark brown with excellent bone quality. The pictures show what a treat this is. No restore just crack fill. I left a few small areas of matrix on bottom to strengthen the entire case for display. This item I have never never seen for sale but here it is . This is a chance to own a rare piece virtually never found. If you look in museums this piece is always restored - but not this one.

XX Long Triceratops Nice Triceratops Brow Horn with Beautiful Tip

Species: Triceratops horridus

Species description: Large 11 ton herbivore with frill around 6.5 ft head and 1 nose horn with 2 Brow Horns off frill.

Period: Cretaceous Period 70-66.5MYA

Geologic strata: Hell Creek formation

Location: Glendive, Montana

Item description and rating: 12+ XXLarge Long 35.5" x 22" Diameter Triceratops Brow Horn with excellent pointed tip. This is the longest triceratops horn I ever had as it is slender and long with a beauty of a tip. These are getting rare as I only got a few this year after selling 12 of them last year.
It is sleek and an old probably female triceratops. This horn has a huge curve, and as they get bigger they get bigger on the curve also. You will never find a longer trike horn anywhere. The males had thicker horns and this with its length make it a very old trike indeed. It had 3 major breaks but fit nicely into the next unit so being sealed with penetrant sealer it made it strong and crack fills went really easy. All the pieces are there so little restore was needed but maybe 1% was restored. It is professionally prepped well with a super tip with nice shape and texture. It is fine representation of one of the most fascinating of the dinosaurs who could beat TREX. This one probably killed a few Rexes throughout its lifetime. It was found by a ranchers daughter-in-law, and sold to me to help pay her tuition this semester so they have gone up due to demand about 50% since last year. Triceratops horns sell fast so be the first to get this monster. I doubt if I'll get another this long. I only have 2 left on the skull connection point and both of them 24 inches.

Super Rare Full TREX Neck Vertebrae

Species: Tyrannosaurus rex

Species description: One of largest carnivore during the 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  70-66.5 MYA

Geographic strata found: Hell Creek Formation

Geologic location: Buffalo,  S. Dakota

Description and rating: 12 +++ Super Rare FULL TREX NECK VERTEBRAE w/Process & Canal with unbelievable detail. Ask yourself have you ever seen a large neck vertebrae  let alone a TREX. This is definitely a TREX-look at size 17" high and 13" wide at widest point with 8 inch main vertebrae. I have a picture of another TREX to show a series of verts. This ultra rare find was is so massive and the rarest of rare neck vertebrae. It is a beautiful dark brown as an underground find with even the point process at the top. It was very fragile and broken when I received it but with tender loving care and some penetrant sealer it is now very sturdy and a beautiful piece. This is the first one I have ever seen outside a museum. No restore just crack fill and basically complete with just a very small section of right side process not present. Trex frantics will fight over this one and since I collect many TRex items myself including complete Tibia, Fibula, and Metatarsal as well as many others I would not mind at all keeping this one.

I can pack it well to ensure it won't break The shiny color is a generous sealer to protect so it is fine. The processes are not glued on the one vert due to shipping but glue can be provided.

Item description and rating: 1-12 – 12 Extra Nice  Thick Brow Horn 22" Long with beautiful bone and part of frill attached. It is also 22" in circumference with a nice base as well as tip. It has a few cracks on horn that have been filled but virtually can’t tell where they are at all. The quality of bone from end of base to tip is remarkable. The base area has been stabilized  heavily with pieces put back together and area of most of crack fill . It  is sealed for stability so can be mailed anywhere. It is heavy and a prize possession for anyone. Rarely do you get such a complete base w/ part of  frill on these animals . It is decent sized for a brow horn and exceptional  tip also with extraordinary color as it was an underground find.  A must for a top collector.

Item description and rating: 12++ Super RARE Allosaurus Toe Claw (2 15/16"). This claw is my third Allosaurus claw in 6 weeks and I haven't seen one other on any website so any of my claws are  dreams come true for a number of my clients. It is a very nice specimen that is mimimum restoration not like the 2 others I had. One quarter inch on the tip and a ¼" chip on top of claw is all there is from keeping me from saying it’s perfect. So 97% at least original on a toe claw. When I have seen Allosaurus claws they are all hand claws so this is an extra special treat. This came from an area that has found a number of top specimens and I had a 6" sauropod Apatosaurus Brontosaurus claw from here. Color is dark black and perfect shape. With this one you get to have your cake and eat it too with little restoration and toe bones are even rarer than hand claws from what I have seen through the years . In fact this is the first Allosaurus toe claw I have seen and about 20 hand claws through the years. A few of my clients wanted one with little restore so here it is. Recently I saw a 2 ¼" claw sell for $3000 (at least asking price this) for a unidentified Jurassic claw so I believe my price is reasonable.  So step up the the plate on this one.
