Item rating and description : The most famous 23.5” x 13” WideMonster  Cave Bear is The Largest Extinct  Bear you will ever see from Drachenhohle near Minitz Austria. This is a Monster Cave bear -Largest I’ve ever seen . This Cave Bear was found in 1905s in the Drachenhohle(The Dragons Cave ) Near Mixnitz, Austria. It was excavated when no laws existed. There is no record of the Finder except found in 1905 at this cave  but he owned it   until 1965 when it was sold to H. Burki. The skull remained in his collection until 2022 when a friend in Belgium purchased if for me so really only 3 owners in 120 years . What is also  amazing the dark color indicates very old bear-in fact this one was found over 6 meters(18 ft ) of dirt which comes from cave ceiling over many tens of thousands of years so it’s well over 60,000years old, and it was found in a famous cave where over 30,000 cave bears back then at different levels were found as it was run later by a phosphate company who allowed people in to take them . What is unbelievable of these few exist and no one sells the ones they had so I’ve only seen a few Dragonhole cave bears in my lifetime . This one is in my personal collection and not for sale . Its just too good to part with and so hard to get this.  I have the COA with all info signed by him .  So this skull until 2022 never left Austria in over120 years.  Also the oldest bears in Europe are from Dragonhole .

Next the quality is so good even areas of normal resto aren’t restored like zygomatic arches , backs of lowers, lower front which almost all bears have resto but not this one. IT only has a few spots so 98% original , which is so fantastic I can't let this one go, but have one more . I see only 1 tooth that probably came from another cave bear  .   It's mammoth and  wide.  European Austrian Male Bear with Super Bone Quality. All Teeth with x-Nice Canines are natural teeth . Cave Bears are no longer found as this species is from an old, old, collection and no more in decades  have been discovered. The size at 23” no one has ever seen.  They used to be found in caves all over Europe, and Russia, Austria ,Belgium, Germany ,  Romania, France  but now all caves are closed to public. These have gotten very, very rare as only the old collections have them. Not many of these people will sell them so now demand is high, and supply very low. This means prices will be going up a lot and one day if I sell will be worth a lot . The prices have doubled in the last 2 years, and this one is even better and so huge. Drachenhohle( Austrian German Name ) adds so much value it’s just unbelievable to have this , and this is better and bigger than any I’ve seen in 25 years.. The color, no wear on teeth, and natural completeness is really amazing on this skull.  It doesn’t get better than this for bear lovers like me.  Ill gladly keep it. YOu can hardly believe how hard it was to get this specimen -months and months. The largest bear ever . No one has one thios big from  Dragonhole Austria  I THis is one of a kind anywhere in world that I know of and sold bears for years . You wont see any from Dragonhohle ever again as I never until last year saw any  in 30 years in business . You can look for 100 years and not find a bigger cave bear from a highly desired area . Just find another from Austria  IN Europe this area is tops in any cave bear and no one sells them  except someone very old .  I decided to sell but it doesnt matter really because this bear is so amazing . THis bear is worth so much more than a 17 " one from Romania which now are hardly available  . THats why these have gone up  Wholesale now is so high its unreal . I saw none at Tucson MIneral show this year where only best dealers come .

$19,999   real steal at this price   Largest Bear I ever had of any species and from all records largest Cave Bear ever  If you can find a larger bear anywhere ILL lower it 2000 but you wont

Magnificient One-of-Kind Early Miocene Unknown Male Species Beardog Skeleton

One-of-Kind EARLY MIOCENE Unknown Male BEAR-DOG Skeleton

Species: DAPHOENDON BOROCYON 

Species 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. 

Geological strata: Early Hemingfordian 

Geological period: Early Miocene 19 MILLION YEAR OLD STRATA 

Item location: Dixie County , Florida 

Item rating and description:1-10 10 Large Early Miocene All Original Male Beardog Family :Daphoendon Genus :Borocyon Unnamed Unknown Species of BEAR DOG Highly Original . NO one on earth has anything of this animal and I have the whole skeleton with skull. Over 90% of skull is original bone and the skeleton is almost all bone with only a few smaller upper foot bone casts from a relative . Keep in mind this is one of a kind . No casts have ever been made so all inner bones and almost all foot bones are original beardog bones from 2 animals - male and female in a cave of the inner main bones all are from one beardog . Only one fibula had some restore . bula. The head and inner main bones with feet are beardog from this cave . This was a 2 year project and of extreme value to museums or someone who wants something unknown at super price . The quality, shape color is remarkable The ribs and verts were not found, and are bear, however ,we found from a similar species at American Natural History Museum that all ribs are just like beardog . Generally all items at top look like bear and all feet and lower plus tail are like dog hence Beardog . Resemble bear so much its an accurate portrayal . Since no casts exist its better to have bone that is almost exact to represent . Remember most skeletons anywhere including dinosaur rarely approach 70% . I estimate this over that .It has stain to match colors especially on bear ribs and verts, which match exactly rest of the beardog . The head and inner main bones are all one beardog with feet some of that beardog and others from it’s mate The bulk of it is one beardog. The skull is 14” and amazing and its mounted beautifully for your enjoyment. It comes in sections like each leg, pelvis and tail, head and verts as well as ribs and screwed in into an almost invisible frame that makes it so appealing . This is an amazing find as no one has this anywhere, no head no skeleton and shows the size . It was prepped well to show the creature in a highly original way. This has no papers describing it but we know it’s close to robustus which was only described from only a few pieces of skull-2 in Nebraska. This is of extreme scientific value and highly original. This has all teeth –some placed in from another animal the same species. Of course this is so rare this should not matter as you can’t get this anywhere .The teeth are fantastic and not even worn. Who has even another species of this? NO one is the answer. It was gotten from a friend, and it’s a treasure. It was professionally 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 can’t say anymore than here because nothing is known of this animal. You won’t find anything under this in google so here is your info. So you understand this species is unknown and its one of a kind No skeleton is complete and at most -most skeletons are 60-70% with casted parts. All but 3 bones are original on this so what you have here is a very complete almost all beardog which in unknown and its huge .The skull alone is worth $45,000 minimum 

It cost me a fortune over $60,000 in costs to mount , prep and pay for item. One auction house it was valued at 110-120,000 . Will deliver free in eastern part of USA $84,000 either thru driving or UPS pallet what a deal email me at paleoman@dinolandplus.com call 706-235-2694 This is an amazing find. Any museum it would be the highlight of its mammal collections Most beardogs were size of dog and only 1 named is bigger than this species. It died out 18 million years ago .This is being sold just above cost and was years of work. I THis is not rare-it doesn't exist anywhere on earth .
