ONE-OF-A KIND Astonishing REPENOMAMUS Skeleton -Largest Mammal in Dinosaur Ages Which ATE DINOSAURS 125 MYA-3 ft

Astonishing REPENOMAMUS SKELETON-High originality -Famous Killer of Baby Dinosaurs -Largest Mammal during the Age of Dinosaurs

Species: Repenmamus giganteus 

Description : Badger-sized mammal -only one known to eat dinosaurs  . Recently on TV as having one with stomach contents of 2 baby dinosaurs . This was the largest mammal known throughout all dinosaur period as dinosaurs kept them at bay the entire time, and almost all others were size of mice . It was larger than several known adult dinosaurs also .It was a carnivore -one of few mammals that were that also ate other vertebrates like reptiles and birds . Only 2 known and this the only one in private hands . A non-placental mammal which means it laid eggs that hatched like modern marsupials . It’s a member of the triconodonts an early mammal even though they started about 230 MYA. IT came from reptiles as we all did . Its teeth are very sharp and between a dog and a cat . That's why I put in cats and dogs.  More a cat and may be one of forerunners of Sabertooths even though Miacis -like a weasel is given that honor  

Time: Early Cretaceous 125-123 MYA 

Area : Euroasia  There is video about this mammal  Repenomamus the Mammal that Ate Dinosaurs  

 

Description : Rating 10 of 10 . To me this is the find of the entire dinosaur period.  Rarer than any dinosaur it is one of my most exciting specimens. Most people only think of dinosaurs but to get a whole specimen with only ribs and part of shoulder blades restored is so amazing . The head has all real teeth to this animal and is 6” Long with the whole animal 36 “ long exactly 3 feet . I do have ribs but they are in pieces so unable to mount but could put some on eventually on top of others.   Expertly mounted  and just a sight to behold . Mammals are my thing now and wanted one for quite awhile. It was found in prep shop in matrix with contents unknown for decades and recently prepped.   One of a kind - IM keeping this  . If I did sell it would take a lot and will take names for the distant future with health permits  I cant say enough about this. IT leaves me speechless almost ,which you know is hard to do on my website. This is so great when you consider almost all mammals were size of today's mouse all just trying to stay alive and not get crushed by dinosaurs . This one could handle small adult dinos and babies .   Its teeth are so sharp thats why I believe its a forerunner to sabercats -they say Miacis is the forerunner which is a  weasel type animal . Miacis was later so Miacis probably came from this mammal . The teeth are so sharp.   A Baby pssitacosaur is under it as we know it ate this due to one specimen in the belly   THis specimen is better  

Call 706-235-2694 or 706-802-7894 Not for sale Its my favorite piece except my Fox 53,000 years old 

  thanks  You may give me your name if interested some day or Ill just enjoy it  while IM  healthy. I don't know the true value since no one has this.  To me it has tremendous value . Amount I paid is well worth it.

No Where Else on Earth-Almost Totally Original Beautiful American Lion Skeleton(few lions )

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion Species Description : The American lion evolved from the earlier Panthera leo fossilis, which I have from Europe, and this skull is believed to be the best specimen ever found of an American Lion. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first came to Alaska over Bering Strait with earlier lions as old as 500,000 years old even though only bits and pieces up to 350,000 years have been found. Also DNA shows this to be almost identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species just like Smilodon has 3 species all the same animal . There is Smilodon fatalis, Smilodon californicus , and Smilodon floridius all named by location nothing else as animal is the exact same. Its the same animal just like the main 2 species of prehistoric lion. This is the largest Lion with spealea that ever lived much larger than African Lions- with skulls up to 16-20 inches over 10-15% larger. It roamed in Alaska, California at La Brea, Canada, Mexico and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear which I also have a skull. All extinct lions now are not found except in Russia. In 2010 Alaskan Lions a few people believe were reclassified into spelaea, but almost know its American Lion. This one was found most probable in Yukon upon further examination which to all is American Lion. All Lions are identified by locations with Gir Forest Lions, African Lions, Extinct- Ivory Coast Barbiary Lions(1960), Russian Lions , and European Cave lions, and American Lions . I have had all of these-one of few people on earth to have had all species of Lion . From all fossils we know American Lion was much rarer than Smilodon when they lived and smarter . At La Brea only 5 lion skeletons exist , and hundreds of Smilodon skeletons found by government so no private collections exist except this lion. They have found atrox tracks in Missouri but no fossils found . WE do know Lion fossils first showed up in Africa 1.7 -1.4 million years ago then UK and Germany 680,000 (Spelae), and then they went to Asia much later to Beringa Lions in Russia then over Bering Strait to form American lions from Alaska to Mexico to Florida and S Carolina . So only ones left are ancestors much smaller than original African Lions. Those now probably migrated from Spelea in Europe much later 100,000 years ago to form lions of today. Some info is just not correct on lions as many other animals in google. Some people say American lions arose from one population in Canada Beringa Lions in Pleistocene from Russia, but these lions are the smallest lion ever so how did the largest Lion in America come from smallest when it’s right next door . American Lions were in Alaska were huge as you see this one here. There is no difference between American Lion and Spealea except American Lions was in North America which Alaska is a member USA. All who work with lions knows how valuable and rare this American Lion is. Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 10,000 Geographic time: 30,000 years ago Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Border in Alaska next to Yukon and also FLORIDA a different species . This was very close to border either way and many more Gold Mines in Yukon . Northwest Of Skagway -Yukon border. No established towns there just mining camps according to original owner . 2 Alaska Lions are combined and 2 Florida Lions . Keep in mind La Brea specimens are hundreds of bones from different animals all put together as I confirmed that with them . Only 1 in a Wyoming museum is all one lion in the entire world This is next best in the world . Item rating and description : 1-10 *11 Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion is. It’s 11 ft 9 inches long and if tale wasn’t up it would be over 12 ft long. Its amazing 56 ” high also with 28” at widest . It is original bone from 4 Lion individuals almost all of which was in the Americas. Only the ribs, verts and 7-10 major larger bones were from Florida with most of the Feet being spelaea species. You see no feet have been found in the Americas for American Lion except La Brea from all known knowledge. After speaking to original owner of skull it appears the skull and many inner bones are from Alaska and close to Yukon Border .So few of these animals exist. Alaska, as American Lion was the original known species for many years until 2009 for all , since then some papers called it Europe Panthera Spelea species only in Alaska from a few specimens so it’s not set in stone according to another a lion expert as with myself know these as American LIons . To me even the notion American lion starts at border of Alaska and Yukon is ridiculous . It’s in the Americas its American Lion real simple. No one can say 1 mile separates it when all lions came 1 lion from Europe over Bering Strait anyway. Again to me and most others in the business it’s all American Lion anyway whether Alaska or not. Anyway keep in mind no more than maybe 6 skeletons exist in the world known with all but one from La Brea, and this is one of best and one-of-kind anyway. In Alaska and Yukon no known complete skeletons exist. I was in the Yukon and asked experts and no one knew of even one -skeleton. If they were there Miners are more interested in Gold than getting bones. These North American Bones were collected 25 years ago from a Gold miner .La Brea Tar pits have 5 but not one is from one animal but many put together from many lion bones. Mine all the verts and ribs are one animal, as well as 7-10 inner bones . The 17” skull is from one, and most of inner major bones except maybe 7-10 inner bones also from Florida are all from same lion also. Anyway the feet are from another lion(cave), which is the same DNA. So this is by far one of best American Lions in the world by far. The skull is 98 % original bone and according to many many top people in the field It’s maybe the best anywhere. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as it’s rarer than Smilodon material and I love saber-tooth cats. No one has this, not even the American natural History Museum as they have a half- skull only. I feel like the luckiest person in the world as I’ll enjoy for years. Skulls are unheard of and bones also. My best friend -a cat expert who does books, has all the sabercats, had only 1 skull from Alaska. The American lion skeleton is the most prized fossil in the world . Even the claws are huge modern lion as no American lion exists since it’s organic and this took a long time to get huge claws as well as some foot bones cave lion . Almost all the sheaths are all original sheaths from prehistoric lions with some some repaired with other lion species ( few modern)sheaths to make them whole. .It took me 10 years to gather 4 main animals to do this. A few substitutions had to be made due to availability, but almost all prehistoric lion. This one appears to be at least at least 30,000 years old on skull with others less . NO museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . The teeth canines are all original teeth . A few were repaired. I searched the entire country for years to get the right skeleton with many wasted bones that didn’t work from American Lion . The measurements of all the bones matches a 17 “ female skull. The teeth were repaired and just 2 from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present. I don’t want to even find fault with this skull and skeleton because there is so little not original . It should be looked at whole as its so good. To my knowledge no other American Lion Complete Skeleton exists in private hands. The only ones known are 1 from a Wyoming Trapped Pit in a museum and 5 at LaBrea Tar Pits . This is 97% original bone least . Basically only the shoulder blades has any amount of restore at all with a little on the ribs & was done by the nation’s best prepper. He knows everything on skulls of cats also. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this. You would have to be an unhappy person to even try to find something wrong here. I only see beauty and you will too I’m sure. To me it’s the best ever found or best known. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skeleton anywhere. I can’t believe it . Its too amazing I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than cave lions. However what is normal as nothing compares to this anywhere .It will be in my collection for a long time even though I have many people would pay a fortune for this. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. You can’t even put a price on this as it’s priceless, but everything is for sale sometime maybe if a huge amount is offered in later years Ill relent. But that is years away. I tried to put words on this but this is undescribeable so look at pics. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. Its mine forever to look at. NO trying to buy it please You cant assign a value . Nothing was spared including huge costs to me to make this all Lion. In fact it costs me 15,000 for claws and Lion sheaths alone until right ones found for this animal -extremely rare due to huge size of claws just like an American lion-some partial lion claws were inside sheaths so those were kept intact also . So this is One-of-a Kind . It’s being stored at a warehouse in Maryland .There are again only a few in the World outside of LaBrea Tarpits and they are also from a variety of American Lions Displayed in jumping attacking position .  Plan on keeping many years as if your a fossil lover nothing beats this. This is the only Known American Lion in private hands -only a few skulls have been found outside La Brea (maybe 5 there also) So its understood no complete American lion skeletons have ever been sold  They do not exist  . The last totally Cave lion skeleton and only know of maybe 6 from same person sold for 280,000 . THis is american lion and the best skull ever known of an American LIon ever . The skull alone is worth as American Lion (Alaska) skull which a few around are from alaska and one I have -an upper from Florida not in museums is no more than 1 from Iowa, one from Memphis area and counting mine 6 from Alaska as its researched so the price with mounting is only . A company in Russia wanted this for a museum b ut I declined of course . I would like an  American or European  museum or private collector  to purchase and pick it up and do transport as I cant do that on this beauty .

One Of Kind -  Super Rare Eusmilus US Saber-tooth Cat with Saber

Species: Eusmilus olsontau 

Species description: The Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of smaller ones)with razor –sharp sabers and after Dinictis and Hoplophoneus on geological chart which is believed to evolve from one line of hoplophoneus saber cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period for only a few million years from 30-27.7 MYA . These animals had a lot of physical characteristics similar to Hoplophoneus Sicarius except for size , as Eusmilus was the genus for that animal until a short time ago . All these are small saber cats only 5-6 inches long with large sabers and flanges for the size which makes it look like a barbourfelis and a hoplo except for much smaller size .It had only 26 teeth compared to 44 for most saber cats and it was lacking molar 1 talonoid and premolar 2 on the bottom jaw . It was bobcat sized with lynx sized head and was built like Barbourfelis for size (Of course Barbourfelis is much larger ). Long bodied and short legged compared to others, and they ate grazing ungulates including camels and oreodonts. They could open their jaws at a 90% angle . Most of the info on internet is incorrect as below is correct . It did not live 8 million years, just over 2 and did not have a large species in America (only this small one)at least and one in Europe was bigger .

The lower jaw is original to this cat also which is rare. They are so hard to get anymore.  The teeth are so appealing and love the bone also.  Incisors are almost never real and many of these are on top and bottom. Sabers are so beautifully prepped and brown colored. On upper only a little on zygos are restored with a few spot fills and condyles   On lower only one side at top of back except spot fills is restored which is amazing .

This is only one I have .  I have more pics if you need it.   Cats have gone up a lot so here it is. Every year they appreciate more also so great investment. This species is rare also  Look at those sabers long and wide .  These have risen alot for us to purchase and no one has them for sale anymore so demand is high and supply is almost nonexistent  Not this time as Ive sold many with 1 saber at this price . SO better quality at better price .

Species description: The long –legged Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of largerone)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.

Item location: Shannon County , SD Item rating and description:1-10 10 on Rarity This is the 2nd sabertooth cat ever in the entire world as its a very early Hoplophoneous sabertooth. Sabertooths originalted here in USA and this was second only to Dinictis . Gorgeous 7 ½ ” Rarer Hoplophoneus- Early Cat Skull in Excellent Shape . Some people say this was combined into priveavus species but as a White River expert with others ts divided to another species it’s an amazing find This is actually not primaveus, and is a really rare oreodontis species that has top quality at approx 80% . The teeth are great on premolars but incisors and sabers are casts This is such a rare species I’ve only had one in 20 years before this. For a true collector this is a must skull . It was the early hoplo -the first ever in fact .This is an old cat and primeavus would be bigger . It was found in very early rock which lower Brule is. Repair on  cheeks , backs of both lowers and a few small spots own upper but top quality for such a rare skull . Even with sabers these never come around. All parts are one saber cat. My last one sold for a lot over 14,000 and this is better . Cat of USA are so hard to find anymore. Its almost impossible . If you read some articles many scientists have combined this into primeavus but the institute says this is definitely a different very rare species as they have only had a few of these in over 40 years , and its guaranteed a new rare species oreodontis so its –just too valuable .This wont be around again .This would go for $18.000 -20,000 if not for sabers so its a great chance to get a great skull fore the money

Beautiful Gorgeous Exceptional 7.5” Dincitis Sabertooth Cat Skull w Complete Saber & Part of Other

Beautiful Gorgeous Exceptional 7.5” Dinictis Saber-tooth Cat Skull with 1 Complete Saber& Tip of othe

Species: Dinictis Felina Saber- Cat Skull 

Species description: The long –legged dinictis with razor –sharp sabers was the smallest and the earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Eocene Period 45 MYA -23 MYA . They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habits and diet, and were solitary predators 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. Most skulls were about 7.5 inches long. 

Geological strata: White River Formation

 Geological period: 40-35 MYA 

Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota

 Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 This skull is so beautiful , and highly original . Its an early Dincitis which you can tell due to size of 7.5 inches and also location that I know well. The sabers are about 2” long which is normal above many this era. One saber is all there but the other has ½ inch of the tip real with the rest restored. I’d estimate 80-85% original, which for an Oligocene cat amazing . The skull is mighty fine also with approx. 85% original with resto on some of saggital crest plus backs of lowers. The teeth on upper are all real including the incisors and canine incisors . Again the teeth are highly original and hardly any repair on upper except part of one saber . On bottom the smaller incisors and 1 molar & 1 premolar are restored . This cat is great. Restored minimal areas including saggital crest, few spots on top , ½ of one zygo , and one back of lower . For those who do not know that is so minimal . It was expertly prepped and rest of skull is totally original. I’ve had only had a few better than this one and expect this to sell fast. I sell 6-8 per year last 10 years. While some cats only occasionally show up, this is still quite good . Few people have these to sell as I do . You just won’t find them so those still expecting perfection will wait years and years and never get one. This cat has most everything- beautiful color, most original teeth, great sabers, excellent originality of skull and it’s open mouth mounted. What is the most amazing on this cat it was no distortions. The shape is perfect. This occurs only 1 out of 20 cats so this is great . On all sides it works to display on nice display mount also. It is really something. I looked at this so long as I could not find much resto. They just don’t come like this cat, so for you people who want a lot here it is. I had to have it and you will feel the same after looking at the pics .This worth so much more so no discounts. This is from a low formation which makes it one of first saber cats ever. 90% ones go for over 12,000 now . Price $9999 firm Shipping 2 packages overnite $235

Beautiful Aesthetically Pleasing 7.5” Chocolate Dinictis -First Saber-tooth Cat Amazing Teeth2 Saber

Beautiful Aesthetically Pleasing 7.5” Chocolate Dinictis First Saber-Tooth w Amazing Teeth Species: Chocolate Dinictis Felina Saber- Cat Skull Species description: The long –legged dinictis with razor –sharp sabers was the smallest and the earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Eocene Period 45 MYA -23 MYA . They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habits and diet , and were solitary predators 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. Most skulls were about 7.5 inches long Geological strata: Lower Zone Brule Formation Geological period: 40-23.5MYA Item location: NW Nebraska Item rating and description: 1-10 8.5 Rare Chocolate7.5” Dinictis Saber-Tooth Cat Skull Found which was found many years ago . These are 2 sabers complete, and all teeth but 2 small incisors which makes it one of best ever on teeth , which is by far the most important part of cat . The only problem is the top skull mostly was eaten away by erosion as it was above ground . The prepper has to save it by using a cast on top. Some parts of nose and back is real on upper as well as half of both zygos. The lower is amazing on teeth and bone, as all of this was underground. It’s a way for someone who doesn’t mind on upper lots of resto, but the rest is amazing with teeth you could just cry. A chocolate dinictis is almost unheard of as only a few miles radius in Nebraska Oligocene these can be found. I can honestly say that probably a very small percentage of cats are this color, and I’ve only had two others in 20 years. This is an average size dinictis. It has beautiful dark brown original sabers est about 2” inches along. . The lower jaws are much better than normal with a small amount in backs of lowers. The teeth make this just wonderful. You never get hardly any incisors which is 12 teeth and all but 2 are original. All on the top are perfect . All and all a very good cat It can be shipped without fear of breakage .This is for again someone who doesn’t care on top originality but wants a low price and original teeth . IT comes with a metal display on wood base shown in last 2 pictures . It is so super it literally can hold you attention for a long time. Nothing compares to this cat in teeth and overall beauty. IM selling at my cost so this cat would cost 10,000-11,000 if upper was better on bone.
