Gorgeous Great Top Quality 8.50”x 5.25” 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 location : Shannon County, SD

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 Gorgeous High Original 90% Original Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Skull 8.50 ”long with long 2.75” Sabers. One saber is a cast, one original. The bone quality is simply fantastic . Any cat over 75% now is remarkable. Cats are so rare this year. The upper is 95% , and lower is fine also with all teeth real except smaller incisors casted which is normal . This is one of the best cats I’ve had even though one saber restored. 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. . 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 , and stood out as magnificient pure shape and completeness. 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 cats 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. You will never see one this good anywhere anytime including at this site. 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 . This cat would go for $14,000 now if it had the other real saber. People have to adjust their expectations now on cats 2 sabers just doesn’t occur in American cats anymore and one at 70%-75% is fine but this is way better They have increased so much due to rareness . Just try to find one or why waste time when its here

Extremely Rare Gorgeous Entire Leg-Foot of CAVE LION 100% Natural w Sheaths, Claws Wounds

EXTREMELY RARE Entire 46”Leg-Foot CAVE LION 100% Natural w Sheaths, Claws , Knee & Wounds

This entire Leg-Foot was carbon dated at 47,000 years

Species : Panthera Leo Spelaeus (Eurasian Cave Lion)

Species Description : This is the extinct Cave Lion that was larger than African Lions with skulls up to 15-17 inches long (About 10% larger) . Only American Lion is larger but many people believe they are one in the same . It roamed Russia and all over Europe . It was massive with a large sturdy body with a shoulder height greater than 5 ft high and a body length of more than 8-9 feet with tail .

Geographic Period : Pleistocene Epoch

Geographic time: 47,000 Years ago

Item Area: Carpathian Mountains, Romania

Item rating and description : 1-10 10 BEAUTIFUL ENTIRE Leg & Foot 46” MOUNT with all the accessories including Sheaths , Claws, Knees and 2 puncture wounds from a hyena . This leg-foot has a huge number of bones throughout. EUROPEAN CAVE LION is so rare now with all caves closed to private diggers –all government loaned. The seller said this is one- of- a- kind item now. It is so complete and all real bone. The puncture wounds shows it was bitten in life thru a struggle or on death after animal went down. They are huge puncture wounds and no doubt a hyena chewed on him or her. This is very valuable as it shows this animal was extremely large at 46” long . You won’t see another one for sale anywhere. Most authorities agree American Lion and European Lion were actually the same species even though they were given different names due to location DNA testing shows the same animal . This bone here- quality is supreme with little wear and multiple colored bone .Just a beauty all around . This one is rarer than Smilodon material, and it separates the true collectors from the pretenders. This is my first one since my whole lion was put together from 4 animals which is really small as most lion skeletons are so rare to have told by the LaBrae Tar Pits paleontologists . These won’t be found any more so don’t wait or you lose. IT is truly a prize. I never had a leg only a whole foot that sold for $6000. This has the leg and knee also plus it has all 4 sheaths with claws Each sheath with claw sells for $700 each in this great condition as sheaths are amazingly complete except one . This is 3000 alone just sheaths at tip. Just don’t ask for a discount as this is so low now for this much of an lion that died out 10,000 years ago and this is much older as it was carbon dated at 47,000 years old . A whole skull now go for 50,000 and up so this is dirt cheap .One hasn’t been found in a long time. No country in Europe any more has new material only owners in Europe who will never sell. I can get 2 more of these also- arms. It’s the last of the best fossil animals in Europe has to offer so don’t delay. Im happy to keep this forever just like my whole skeleton if no one appreciates this to buy it also. The metal mount is easy to do and makes it look so great . This leg foot was carbon dated at 47,000 and Pleistocene within 1 million years this method is very accurate so its an old lion way before 10,000 years ago when they died out . You can tell from the darker color also

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 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.

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

HIGHLY ORIGINAL BEAUTIFUL HUGE 17”  LION From Am SKULL From ALASKA-ONE-OF-A-KIND NO WHERE ON EARTH

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion (American LION) & Cave Lion from USA

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, California at La Brea and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear which I also have a skull.

Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 30,000

Geographic time: 60,000-30,000 years ago

Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Fairbanks, Alaska

Item rating and description : 1-10 *10* Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion Combined w Lion from America skeleton is. A large % of this lion was in the usa but species names for parts are in question due to latest scientific evidence .Most of it was from Alaska with some from Florida . Its 17” Long as measured around the upper curve from back of incisors to back tip of sagittal crest . Up to 2009 all lions from America were called American Lion now no designation for Alaska has been offered in species name as they were close to European Cave Lion but we are not Europe. The skull is so complete bone is at least 97% or more of the animal from Alaska . I have the entire skeleton also that is being prepped and close to done. 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 c 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 . It crossed the Bering Strait 340,000 years ago . However rarely are 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

No Where Else on Earth-Almost Totally Original Beautiful American Lion Skeleton ( Skull -Alaska)

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion & American Cave Lion(not designated yet)

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 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 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 . Its the same animal just like the main 2 species of prehistoric This is the largest Lion that ever lived much larger than African Lions with skulls up to 16-20 inches over 15% larger. It roamed in Alaska, California at La Brea 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 Russia

Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 30,000

Geographic time: 30,000 years ago

Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Fairbanks, Alaska, Florida –verts and ribs

Item rating and description : 1-10 *11 Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion & Lion from USA Skeleton 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 most of which was in America . So few of these animals exist , but names of species are variable even in Alaska as American Lion was the original idea for hundreds of years until 2009 then since related to Europe Panthera Spelea species some had reclassified while others maintain its Atrox . Anyway keep in mind no more than maybe 6 exist in the world and this is one of best except La Brea tarpits . I called them. IN Alaska alone no skeletons besides this are known so they are so rare . They 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 a few inner bones . The 17” skull is from one, and most of inner major bones 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, but not one American Lion. 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 . The sheaths are all original sheaths from prehistoric lions with 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 60,000 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 98% 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 . 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 . Not for sale . Plan on keeping many years as if your a fossil lover nothing beats this
