MONSTER Extinct 19.5”Highly Original  MALE CAVE BEAR Skull with all Teeth from Russia

Species:  Ursus  uralensis –Russian cave bear

Species description:  Large Bear from  Pleistocene that was previously only known in Europe but this which was larger than size  of a grizzly and lived 20-25,000 years ago in  Europe with large jaws and large bodies similar except bigger than modern bears  It lived in Europe at height of last Ice Age  and hibernated in European Caves to survive the winters  .  One cave Dragonhole in Austria contains remains of more than 30,000 bears  and many died in their sleep. It was hunted by Neanderthal people and was a  vegetarian despite the size of teeth. They were found at many locations also in Russia , but now very few –only Romania .

Geological strata:  Pleistocene1.5 Million Years OLD   

Item Location:  Russia  Ural  Mountains  

Item rating and description : LARGE Top Premium Russian Male  ENTIRE CAVE BEAR SKULL 19.5” With Super Bone Quality. All Teeth with x-Nice Canines are original ,and what a monster at 19.5” long .Russian Cave Bears are no longer found as this species is from a old collection and no more for years have been discovered. It is almost 20”  Long x 10.5” wide x 10” tall .  They used to be found in caves all over Europe, Russia , and Alaska but now only Romania so this very rare . The prices have doubled in the last 2 years , and this one is even better than the last one I had. They go so fast I expect this will be gone in a very short time . The great ones go for 6-8,000 now, and this is every bit as good. The color, no wear on teeth, and natural completeness is really amazing on this  skulls.  I will not come down on this but will offer at low price, just can’t discount. These are such a great investment as the values will keep on rising and soon they will be like so rare only old collections will be sold.  This species is the rarest of the entire lot of cave bears so you will only ever see a few of these ever and they are earlier bears but even larger than European ones.

GIGANTIC SIMPLY-THE BEST X LARGE 5 3/16” Huge Diameter 5” T-REX POINT TOOTH Highly Original  


Species : Tyrannosaurus rex


Species description : One of Largest carnivores during the dinosaur age with 12” Corner teeth with roots and up to 49ft long and USA own species in western USA . Very powerful and massively built dinosaur which hunted solitary . It easily downed prey with surprise attacks through use of the jaws


Period: Late Cretaceous Period 70-66.5” MYA


Geographical strata found : Hell Creek Formation


Area Found : Baker , Montana


Item description and Rating1-12 15 RATING:  MASSIVE  Almost Perfect 5 3/16” Long 5” Diameter T-REX(King of Beasts) POINT TOOTH FOUND WHOLE Except for the Root so Highly Original .  Except for one 6 3/8 Incher I had last year this is the best tooth in every way I ever had in beauty and quality. It has almost all the serrations on both sides, top premium enamel, entire tooth not root was found whole, and the Beauty is just breathtaking .  This is amazing as the front teeth usually the serrations wore down but not this one. Not one serration or part of enamel is restored. Its 100% original as it was prepped and sealant used. Words or numbers can’t describe how nice this tooth is. The back of tooth was broke and fit back perfectly with one side of root restored to its present state to show perfection. That was the only restored to same length of other all original side,so  the other side is the  current length and  was repaired as it was original .The tip shows wear naturally for a silly mm only . That actually adds to value as its beautiful and tells a story on its life. It has perfect color-brown as it was totally found underground. I paid a fortune for this tooth as I loved it so much so if no one appreciates it -it goes into my personal collection .Shape is amazing also with no distortions of any kind and diameter is 5” at base  I probably should put in auction but will wait to see if anyone is smart enough to know this would go for at least $14,000 at auction .An auction you get maximum finds and the winner pays a handsome 23% fee on top of that so if you wish to get it cheap here it is now . Wait and your out . It was found by a son of a dinosaur hunter and I had to offer huge money to remove it from his strong grip. I just saw a 6 “ tooth last year not pretty go for $19,000 not in this condition and only ¾ “ less  so what will it be  . I just had to have it –Do you?

I have seen unprepped squamosals go for 2000 on ebay but not ever have I seen a baby prepped or unprepped so this is a first.

Gorgeous Large 8' 1/4" Hoplophoneus Saber-Tooth Cat Skull with 2.5" Sabers

Species:  Beautiful Hoplophoneus   Saber- Cat Skull

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+++  Gorgeous Large 85% plus  Hoplophoneus  Saber-Cat  Skull  8¼" long with 2.5" Sabers. This cat was described by my top prepper as the best one I ever had, as he has done 8 this year for me . All have sold. I agree it is one of my best, and the best upper, and one side of a lower jaw I definitely ever had .The sabers are huge 2.5", real and repaired in middle with slight 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 upper skull is at least 98% original with only a small area of one zygo restored. The teeth have almost all original teeth with some repair and restore on tips. The lower jaw on one side was 95% complete, and the other had some restore. Some of teeth and jaw came from another animal that matched perfectly. Even the incisors are almost all real teeth, just repaired on ends . This cat is the most highly desired vertebrate fossil in the world due to its resemblance to Smilodon, and old age. The upper skull was just outstanding as I saw it before prepped and had everything , and stood out as magnificient pure shape and completeness including the entire saggital crest. This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. An animal this good should go for $10,000, as I've seen many sell for thru the years. I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. You rarely find them this big but here it is. I have more pics if you need it.

Period: Cretaceous Period 70-66.5 MYA

Geologic strata: Hell Creek formation

Item Location: Glendive, Montana

Item description & rating: 1-12- 12+  Beautiful Bulky 28" Long Old Triceratops Brow Horn. This horn has a diameter of 25" (Bulkiest I ever had) and belonged to a Old Male Triceratops and they said these dinosaurs  lived probably 100 years old. It has a base and tip that is simply amazing in size and quality  with a nice brown color lighter as it goes towards the tip, and tip is light as it was found on top of ground. The back half was found underground by the tip. It has many crack fills as it was in pieces but tip for at least 10 inches was whole. Originality is about 95% with little restoration. Bone quality is very good to excellent. It has a great morphology. 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 was sealed a lot with penetrant sealant which protects and makes secure in packing. This sealant is extremely expensive and this horn took awhile to present in current condition. The pieces were meticulously put on towards the back of horn, and it turned out so well. The monster horn is very strong and it should never break even though it is  extremely heavy. 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 kill TREX. This one probably killed a few REXes in its time. Horn are so hard to get especially one in this condition, but I did get a better price on this one so it's yours for...

Item rating and description: 12  Gorgeous Economical  Large   Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Skull 8 ¼” . This Red skull is so becoming I had to purchase it in its current state. While it has casts for the front teeth, the rest of the skull and teeth are in  very good  original condition. Estimate on this cat is hard to determine because the restored areas you will never tell in a million years. I love these cats. I have many people ask me for one they can afford in this price range that is nice so here it is, so show me with your funds you are serious . You will love this cat. Very few are ever red colored as this is the first I've seen but am told one in a hundred are like this  so that means you’ll have to wait about 20 years to get another if you miss this one . You cant even tell the front teeth are cats . If you want to it is a great investment because if you find  original sabers which cost about $800 you have a $7000 cat, so how can you go wrong on this one.
