AMAZING Large Heavy ONE-OF-KIND EXTINCT JAVAN HIPPOPOTAMUS SPECIES(Est 1-1.5MYA)

Amazing Large One -of- Kind Extinct Javan Hippopotamus Est 1-1.5 MYA 

Species : Believed to be Hippopotamus sivalensis  sivajavanicus However one of a kind 

 

Description : These originally had ancestors 55 Million years ago which evolved to similar hippos of today 35 million  years ago originally in Europe and then Africa  then ASia  . The earliest known of this species found (only parts and sections-this is only know complete skull  ) was 1.5 Million years ago in same area Javan man is discovered which is 1 million years old . Aside from elephants and rhinos , hippos are the largest land mammal IT is also the largest extant land artidactyl. Deespite their physical resemblance to pigs and other even-toed ungulates they are closely related to cetaceans like whales and diverged on land 55 million years ago.  Hippos have barrel shaped torsos, wide opening mouths with large canine Tusks with almost complete hairless bodies  and weigh about 3300 lbs  IT is capable of running 19 miles per hour over short distances and are the most deadly animal in wild -responsible for more deaths of humans than crocodiles or tigers  in Africa . ON modern hippos called H. amphibius only 67 survive in Java with some in W, E,  Congo and Cape  Africa . Close to extinction in Java . These were smaller species so approximately 2000 lbs (1 ton) so still huge 

Geological Age : Early Pleistocene Fauna) found with Trinil Tiger and  Stegodon that has this age also 

Item  area found : Area known for Java Man Trinil on Banks of Solo River in East Java (This species also found a few partials in West Java . This one was earliest known species with man as all other areas earliest known like Europe and Africa is 160,000 years ago . 

Only a few parts like a palate with incisors and a few other pieces and one upper 

 

Description and Rating 10  This is a find of a lifetime . It’s the only known entire skull of an extinct Javan Hippo of this species that exists. The Skull is 23 inches long with incisors and 21 inches without and the width is almost 14 inches. The upper had lots of iron embedded in boneand on bone and it was cleaned off with a resulting reddish dark brown color .This is the only known complete set.  As I said these actually have cetacean relatives(whales) but went to land 55 million into off shoots of current hippos so they are older than all large mammals except with exception of rhinos . This is so amazing and is the oldest species known as well as only skull of that species   . NO one has this and it’s in great condition.  IT has some wear as due to age and a hard mineral formed in skull mostly iron and had to be removed just like a Jurassic dinosaur. While highly mineralized on outside which shows age alot  time. It would be great to have a skull of Java man as a lifelong dream but just not available .  4 Canine Tusks are present, with all side teeth plus many of incisors. Only 1 incisor restored. There is a little resto around the nasal area, inside one zygo for an inch and a few spots with repair on crack fills but it’s at least 97% complete.   Upper and lower skull is amazing . Anyway I had to show you this nonexistent but here piece .

Item location:  Yukon,  Alaska     This age is well documented at 30,000 years old so while still same species it is a Pleistocene fossil which you can tell from darkness

 

Item rating and description: 1-10 9 This is an Amazing Pleistocene upper Skull with Horns Partial Horns 18” Long and 10.5”wide .This is so rare my Alaskan  contact said he only ever one other one. This one is from Alaska and while they are still there this is a Pleistocene one shown by the dark, dark color.  Anyway it was so amazing even though it’s an upper Its amazing because all teeth are present which never happens until now. That’s why I bought it plus the 100% natural skull . For those skull lovers even though it exists today not Pleistocene skulls. The teeth are similar to  buffalo but few are found .The upper is quite complete except the upper nasal area . The horns are truly amazing –not equal size.  You can’t view this fossil like all the rest as hardly any fossil remains exist for sale. Since hardly any teeth are ever found as the skulls themselves, this piece is a real trophy fossil piece . Anyway I was told this piece was worth 8,000 with no teeth so I decided to sell it at half price firm for some lucky collector who wants something no one else has in the fossil world. Here are the pics. You can’t find one of these and if you ever did no teeth and a $6000 price tag  THis is 30,000 years old Unheard of so here is something you won't see again .
