Beautiful Premium 8.25” Hoplophoneus Sabercat(Known as Mimi Smilodon )
Beautiful Premium 8.25” Hoplophoneus Saber Cat ( known as the Mini Smilodon)
Species: Hoplophoneus primaveus
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.

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.3 Gorgeous High Original 82%- 85% Original Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Skull 8.25”long with long 2.75” Sabers. One saber is a cast one original . The bone part is simply fantastic . Any cat over 75% now is remarkable. Cats are so rare this year . The upper is 90% , and lower is fine also with all teeth real except smaller incisors which is normal . This is one of the best cats I’ve had even though one saber restored. The right one I believe is real . It was found by a top hunter last year . It is so well prepped it is impossible to tell any repaired or restored areas which are few. The color, shape , teeth, bone quality are impeccable . The molars and premolars are real and great .MY prepper said so many great things about this cat. It’s not perfect but really gorgeous . It’s one of the most beautiful cat you will ever find. Due to rareness prices have soared for wholesale . The Bone quality is magnificent. 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 almost all of saggital crest. The lowers have a little restore in back as most do. This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. An animal this good should go for a lot more than I’m asking now, as I’ve seen many sell for thru the years. I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. The size is huge as are sabers. You rarely find them this big but here it is. I have more pics if you need it. Prices to get these have risen as few are found anymore. No cast were visible this year at show as I had to call all my contacts and make arrangements before so you can’t get these anymore. I just can’t ever say enough about this cat . If not appreciated I will glad keep it for my personal collection.. Entire skull is so great you’ll be sorry if you go for a cheaper 70% skull . If you can afford this it’s a beauty. It’s for anyone who loves sabercats whether top collector or first timer .

Amazing Rare Pleasing Earliest Species Hoplophoneus Saber Cat Skull Highly Original - Oreodontis?
ULTRA RARE EARLIEST Gorgeous Hoplophoneus Saber Cat Skull High Quality (Est 85%) Original Possible OREODONTIS-
Species:; Beautiful Hoplophoneus(Oreodontis) or early early Primaevus
Species description: Long –legged Nimravid sabertooth cat (one of larger with razor –sharp sabers and the second earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the
Geological strata: LOWER BRULE (Upper Nodular Zone ) Early Oligocene or Late Eocene
Timeframe : 35-32 MYA (Orellan) Scenic Member
Item location : Pennington County
Item rating and description:1-10 9.5 Great Rare Early Hoplophoneus skull-one of earliest ones 7.5 Inches long. It appears to me to be like my oreodontis skull which was earliest but it could be the first primaevus also . Besides being the second of earliest sabercats of all time(dinictis earliest) It appears to be a rare species . . The first species were smaller skulls 6-7.5” adults. The latter Oligocene were larger 23 Million years ago . This was found in very early soils so it could be one of rarest ever found. In rarity this age plus the high originality make this a keeper. This is stated by one of best preppers in the world . All teeth are original underneath, even though molars and premolars have been painted on outside due to repair which makes standard monitoring useless. The sabers it is believed are original to a high degree even they also have some paint due to faded enamel and repair . It has penetrant sealant which affects monitoring it thru standard methods as well as paint prep. It is so appealing as any areas of work can’t be seen . The teeth underneath the paint are all real teeth to make it clear .It was excellently prepped for asthetic purposes. Both sabers are repaired and some paint on small part for enamel but all unlying teeth are present. All the incisors are real 100% which is unheard of so 10 teeth normally casted these are 100% original with no repair that is so rare, and the skull uppers and lowers are amazingly original. The only part is a small area in back on upper sagittal crest , 1/2 of zygos. Even backs of lowers are pretty good with one very good originality. Its a simply beautiful Cat and should be looked at that way . While not perfect, actual originality if you include all bone and teeth is extremely high(Probably 90% or more ), but this is not a cat to be blacklighted due to paint as it won’t show near that high . I do know this cat well so the person who buys it is extremely lucky to get such a low price . If your looking for an astectically pleasing cat with high originality from all known this is it .
This is worth in my opinion after 20 years of working with cats about 13,000
Most sabercats are 70-80% original with ones not this rare so this is a treat. Some people say this was combined into privaeveus species anyway so either one is correct. This is an old cat so don’t go by size- The rarity of earlier cats is just amazing on this cat. It comes on nice display also showing teeth so well . I’m tempted to own this forever but will sell because have a bunch right now . The lighter color is typical of this time frame but its so rare so nothing is typical . If you read some articles some scientists have combined this into primaveus anyway but many say it’s a different species . This cat is worth a fortune due to quality and rareness so please don’t wait or its lost. This is called the mini Smilodon because it looks just like it except size. It is not close to perfect due to some painting on teeth and skull but originality is still high as underneath the prep is all bone . This could even be of higher originality but decided to price it low for quick sale for all you cat enthusiasts.
Reduced Final Price: $10,999
This cat was one of few I did not see original before final prep but did see before light painting done. My prepper says its very highly original , and what I can see agree totally. I lowered price due to this for quick sale . This could be worth $3000 more if all teeth totally original which it appears and also due to rare species so no discounts on this one and all sales final .

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 .

Due to a friend I was able to obtain a dream and this is one of few which actually have a saber anywhere . It has one complete side with some bone missing on top but a beautiful back , and the other side is there –just need to prep it . It has excellent bone quality, and is one of the true Eusmilus Cats . I’ve been reading about this cat for years, and by the way now that Hoplophoneus Sicarius has been reclassified no large ones exist as the web says in America . Too many awesome words can’t fully describe this cat. This may be the only one with this much of one saber These are found in rock nodules This is beyond words Its been in my collection for years This is only for cat collectors that will never have another chance to buy . The owner is so lucky Ive been so proud for years but its time for someone else This is 100% original and the one saber is only one of this species that may exist .

Beautiful Ultra Rare Adult Homotherium Saber Cat Lower Jaw Section w 2 Incisors-1 Canine
Species : HOMOTHERIUM
Species description : This cat evolved from Machairodus and appeared at Miocene –Pliocene border about 5 MYA and lived in Africa as well as Euroasia and died out lastly in Asia and North America about 10,000 years ago so it was highly successful. It was a scimitar cat built like a modern lion that had about a 13” skull but much longer teeth called sabers. It was larger than average saber-tooth cat that was very successful yet hardly ever found in fossil records. Complete skeletons have only been found in Texas and of this animal complete skeletons in Asia have never been found and only a few skulls .The sabers per head size are smaller than other the big cats. It preyed on wooly mammoths as found out in Texas. IT looks like a megantereon however much shorter sabers and less sized lower saber guard and sabers reached to end of lower jaw as this one does. It reached 1.1 meters at shoulder . As said compared to megantereon, smilodon, and machairodotus its sabers were relatively short but still they are nice sized sabers. It provided a great puncturing and gripping force . The skull was longer than smilodon. This jaw had down-turned forward flanges to protect the scimitars . It large canine teeth were crenulated and designed for slashing rather than purely stabbing . Some of the physical appearances were unusual for a big cat as it had limbs that gave the homotherium a hyena like appearance. The forelegs were elongated while hind legs were rather squat with feet planti-grade causing back to slope down towards a short tail. It had a large nasal square nasal opening like a cheetah which allowed quicker oxygen intake with brain visual cortex large and allowed it to hunt during the day instead of night like many cats. It lived 5 million years longer than megatereon. It hunted in packs and not only killed mammoths but also rhinoceros juveniles.
Geographical Area: Possible Early Pleistocene
Location: Origin France Item description & rating: 1-10 10 X- Ultra RARE Beautiful Adult Homotherium Scimitar Saber-Tooth Cat Canine Incisor 1.25” Long Plus another reg incisor . It is 100 %original bone and 100 % Teeth original with one smaller incisor plus a large1.25” Canine larger incisor with partial front of jaw.(Per a noted authority ). Both incisors look great with also a root of another in jaw . I have wanted a whole one for years and the opportunity was afforded from a friend who is also the top expert on these creatures , and this will be admired by me & ones who read this. Only a small number found in Texas cave and 2 in Florida and a handful in China and Europe. The great thing about this species it is a form of crenatidens but a different unclassified species that needs researched even more so we can safely say only a few of this exist . AS someone who knows a little on cats said the species is close to be Xenosmulus but different so no species has been classified as of this date so hopefully a book could come from this at later date. Anyway so rare it is not a labeled known species as of yet so under crenatidans for now . This just doesn’t come along so for true collectors of sabercats this section is a must . The canine saber has wear on tip probably natural but unknown . You’ll love this one as I do if you know cats. These from these cats just aren’t available

It was the largest carnivore except the Giant short –faced bear which are virtually nonexistent in the fossil records . It was much larger than the Smilodon Saber-tooth cat. There has been 100 specimens in La Brae found but only a handful elsewhere.
Geological strata: Pleistocene Epoch
Geological period: 1.8 MYA -10,000yrs ago
Item location: Vero Beach , Florida
Item rating and description: 1-10 9 WOW Rarer than Smilodon Largest US Pleistocene Predator Ever Giant American Lion 9” Right Jaw with all lower teeth except the Canine is casted. The jaw is 100% original . This is a huge find, and I’m one of only a few to have had even one of these. The other teeth are original and jaw is beautiful . Its from Florida found many years ago. These are so rare. It provides an opportunity for someone to get a American lion at value due to no real canine .This one is so special as it has never had the teeth out of the sockets. It hasn’t been restored at all that I can see as its from an old collection which means it saves you money . This animal is much rarer than Smilodon which complete skulls if you can find one which I never had go for hundreds of thousands as I have a perfect one above ..It has a metal display also that looks fantastic . These really set it off so you can see both sides . IM just amazed to have such a jaw from the same animal with all teeth intact after maybe 50,000 or more years . This is a great investment. I may be able to get you a f real canine also at some time Ill sell you at cost .Buy missing this front tooth it saves you ½ the price and with a canine at a cost of about 1000 you can have a 6000 jaw for only maximum payout of $3500 . I’d get this while you can as I don’t expect it to last long. This one is worth much more than this but I sell under retail as much as I can. This is a beautiful piece , that is so rare and for this price is simply amazing . I’ve had so few of these in my lifetime.

HIGHLY ORIGINAL BEAUTIFUL HUGE 17” AMERICAN LION SKULL -The GEM of Fossils
Species : Panthera ATROX Lion (American 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 that old. 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 identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species in my opinion. This is the largest Lion that ever lived much larger than African Lions with skulls up to 16-18 inches over 15% larger. It is roamed in Alaska, YUKON , California at La Brea and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear
Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 10,000
Geographic time: 50,000-20,000 years ago
Item Location : Gold Mine. Alaska (IT was purchased from a Dealer in Southern Alaska Northwest of Skagway, Alaska close to Yukon
Item rating and description : 1-10 *10* Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion . It comes with a skeleton w a large % of this lion was In the Americas. The skull was purchased in the USA from a dealer friend from Alaska 25 years ago when all Alaskan lions were considered American Lions-most still do of course as this is . Now almost all people still consider it American lion if found in Alaska , but some research papers consider it spelaea species. Spealea is Europe so actually you cant believe all you read . Many items in google are so wrong . They still haven’t provided an American name yet so a top specialist said call it still Alaska lion or American Lion . After talking to Original owner the Alaskan dealer said American Lion , and whether found in Yukon or Alaska it is still American lion . One of my cat expert friends expert says only maybe 10 skulls at most have been found in Canada, Yukon and Alaska, and Florida combined with maybe 3 in private collections(mine and his included so maybe one more somewhere ) as tAlaska is only place for private collections they were found. No more in years have been found . American lions are from Alaska ,Yukon to Mexico to Florida to California. This skull is from 25 years ago so exact location is impossible to know except Alaska-line-Yukon border is known for sure. Its 17” Long the skull as measured around the upper curve from back of incisors to back tip of sagittal crest. The skull is so complete bone is at least 97% original. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as its rarer than Smilodon material, and I love saber-tooth cats. The American lion and the Cave Lion are one in the same even though some people call this spelaea because no other name can be agreed on by the scientific world. Until 2009 there was no doubt of classification of Alaskan lion but recently they are trying to distinquish this from Canada just miles away with items which is impossible to know . It crossed the Bering Strait 340,000 years ago -one lion and did mutate at certain areas. Some ridilous papers say one small number of bones found in Canada indicate Beringa Lions from Russia made it to Canada and went to American Lion . American Lion was largest species ever Beringa Lions of Russia were the smallest ever even smaller than lions today. Spelea we know made it to Alaska but I believe Alaska is America -isn’t it as many call it this which is also ridiculous as these are in North America and American Lions in Alaska are American Lions also as known by anyone who works with these There is no difference than ones in La Brea in charateristics . In fact they were the same size in most cases and most even bigger in Spelea However rarely are they ever found over 30,000 years old . This one appears to be around that from the color No museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . If you have one send pics.The teeth were repaired and some from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present and real . I don’t want to even find fault with this skull as it was done by the nation’s best prepper, my dear friend who is the smartest man in the world who knows everything on skulls of cats. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this and who even has partials of 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 be it’s the best ever found. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skull anywhere. Only crack fills and even parts were American Lion. This skull makes so happy as I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better, not even the first best original lion I have the upper that is fantastic also. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. It was highly original from one cat but more American lion skull parts plus some modern lion used so no resin . You can’t even tell of crack fills which makes this so amazing . I venture to say this is the best American lion skull anywhere . It gets better –the skeleton was done by the same person and is virtually complete American lion from a couple animals the same size. It took years to get this assembled and 6 years to get this skull. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than normal .Minimal restore and repair is all that has happened here. 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. NOT FOR SALE .
Part Of Skeleton Not for sale
