Premium Hyaenodon Horridus11.5” Skull Agape Open Mouth Skull
Special Premium Hyaenodon horridus 11.5” Skull Agape Open Mouth Skull
Species: Hyaenodon horridus
Species description: This was the largest species of Hyaenodon in North America with massive high saggital crest in back of head, long narrow snout, short neck and long body and tail. It was the top single carnivore although a number of Terrible Pigs could drive one off. This was the largest carnivore for over 20 Million years called a Creodont and it hunted alone not in packs like its smaller 3 related species . These creodonts shared a specialized dentition commonly found in meat eating mammals with shearing structures called carnassal-teeth. This one species was the size of a bear and had 1000 lbs of pressure per bite , and was more dangerous and a lot bigger than any saber-tooth cat of its time a loner).Male specimens show grinding marks on their teeth which means tooth-grinding was used as intimidation with animals. The last creodont went extinct in America about 23 MYA but lasted to the Miocene in Asia. This is the rarest fossil of the 4 species of Creodont by far.

Item location: Pennington County , S Dakota Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 What a Vicious Rare Carnivore- The Extinct Largest Oligocene Hyaenodon11.5” Great Skull. This is the largest species sometimes getting to 14 inches. It is an adult due to teeth , probably a female one of largest Carnivores during the Oligocene Period. The skull has spot restore including back of lower jaws –just a small section is nice with some restore. It’s estimated at 85% but teeth are amazing . Upper Incisors restored and lowers are real . It shows a beautiful spotted color with light areas with dark spots There was some repair but overall bone quality is extremely high . This is a fine specimen. Anything 80-85% original in Oligocene soils is a find . Even small crucians species go for 4000 now and my last one I sold for 8000 recently so this is a screaming buy at below normal price . If you stand back this looks so amazing ,but it’s not perfect . Great display also .

Rarest-of-Rare Extinct Perfect 100% Original 13.5” CAVE HYENA SKULL from Rare Location
RAREST- of- RARE EXTINCT Perfect 100% Original 13.5” CAVE HYENA Skull from Rarest of Locations
Species: Crocuta crocuta spelaea
Species description: These hyenas were known as the Ice Age Spotted Hyena and was a subspecies the second largest Hyenas of all time and was a carnivore who stalked and killed animals in packs it was about 6 ft long and looked similar to a modern hyena except much bigger including the head was much wider and different shaped possessing a long body and short legs. This species once ranged from Iberian Peninsula to Russia .This hyena was a highly specialized animal. These weighed over 250 lbs .They ate wild horses , steppe bison, and wooly rhinoceros that was so ruthless it could kill almost anything with its progressive and regressive features being more developed than the modern African species. Its extinction was earlier than other Ice age mammals with last one dated 11,000 years ago with most gone 14,000 years ago. This helps explain the only few specimens like this one in Middle Asia . Its extinction was due to climate change, and an inability to compete with lions and humans, and loss of grasslands which they hunted. These though did likely kill wolves which roamed with them due to being more powerful.

Item rating and description: 1-10 10 Perfection on an extremely rare animal Cave Hyena 13.5 “ long with Super Teeth and Totally Original 100 Skull . I checked with all European dealers and only 2 ever sold a skull, and those 2were only 80%. No other dealer has even seen one. Pieces and parts but no full skulls. And what a skull. It was never broken not even zygotes. This is the Rarest find in Europe and probably the best ever found from searching all literature in history . This was cleaned off only no sealant no nothing. I have never even seen a complete skull as people in Europe and Asia have never seen . Not one bit of work was done to this as it was sitting in a cave protected from thousands of years / These caves were only recently discovered so not even Europe knows about these. So few people in the world know of these they don’t even know how to price –that’s how rare they are . All animals in this area are dark and this was lightest of all animals found but still darker reddish brown. Most animals are black from here only . The ones in Europe are light. This could be the areas of first ones due to color 500,000 years old . Darker the color the older they are. Next to Bonecrusher hyena this was one of 5 top carnivores at its time including sabercats, lions, bonecrusher hyena and this. This is perfection to top degree. IT attracted huge animals like wooly rhinos, horses, wooly mammoth etc. Its huge 13.5 inches and 9 inches wide so no compression. It comes on a sturdy stand also . Where can you get a top predator this good. It’s amazing .This specimen displays so well with total originality This is worth a fortune. People in Europe are different from USA –they like totally natural 100% but will take partial animals more than prepped animals but this is so good it can be owned by anyone who wants to premium bone . While nothing is perfect this will sell so fast to Europeans or Americans as it perfect. One tooth repaired. That’s it. 100 % original and so rare you will never ever see another. I’ll be getting more animals from this region including lions so be ready or these will go so fast it will make your head spin .These go for way more than I want especially from an area that never found them If no one buys this that’s fine it will stay with me as find another. It’s for someone collection who has most everything but they don’t have this. Even poor ones in Europe go for more than I’m asking Call on this one. Keep in mind only 2 dealer has even seen one in Europe and Asia until now .Only accept wires or Cashiers Check . Mounted I on beautiful display . You can find an upper or something that has lots of resto but not one like this This is for a perfectionist and probably the best skull of this rare species in the world . This is a premium skull not like a few that are missing many parts so you cant compare this to any other .

Beyond Fantastic- LaBrea Dire Wolf 12.5 From an Old Collection Highly Original
BEYOND FANTASTIC - Most Desired Fossil on The Planet -LARGE LABREA TAR PITS DIRE WOLF 12.5” Skull with Tar pit Ooze and Bones Direct From California
Species : Dire wolf (Canis dirus)
Description : It was closely related to Gray wolf in many features but it is not direct ancestor of any species today . IT became extinct 10,000 years ago with wooly mammoth . IT was larger than Gray Wolf averaging 5 ft in length and weighing 150-175 lbs . Legs of Dire Wolf was shorter and sturdier than those of gray wolf and the brain case was smaller to than the gray wolf .These were mainly found in California and Florida.
Geological timeframe : Pleistocene 2 MYA -10,000
Location : La Brea Tar Pits , LA California
USA Description : SPECTACULAR AMAZING LA BREA TAR PITS HIGHLY ORIGINAL DIRE WOLF 12.5” Skull with Tar with an assemblage of Dire Wolf Bones . I would say this is one of a kind but I have two of them . I haven’t seen a La Brea Dire Wolf in 10 years and never saw one this good except the other one I have for sale. This is so wonderful I can’t find the words to express my amazement at the quality of this specimen, so it goes into my personal collection. It is highly original and would estimate 90% with all teeth real teeth, and a few from other Dire Wolf La Brea parts. The skull is amazing. It has only restore at thin section at middle of the skull , and part of back above the condyle area., little on back of lower jaws , and that’s it . The condyles are real. The teeth are amazing and 90% from this animal including incisors except 3 upper. Words just can’t describe this piece. It was so difficult to prep because normal air compression work would have caused caused the color to change as it was so fragile and the most difficult prep job a top prepper ever did . It was stained a lot .It took one year to complete . The assemblage of bones is original with toe bones, verts and others full and partial in the matrix which was a part of the unprepped animal . It is just spectacular . Even the zygos are original on this animal. It has repair but teeth were full, and little need repair on these. They are wonderful . Imagine even real incisors in the front. THis was of course from an old collection and was laying around for probably over 50 years before the government took over ownership . I’m so pleased to own this and regard it as in a league of its own. LaBrea just isn’t available anymore , and if anyone does have one they don’t sell it . Notice the patented dark brown color. This is the original color in an area of high concentration of oil as some are lighter. Well I can’t say more on this as words are not adequate to do this justice so maybe the pictures will. Im selling for a friend who bought this from me a few years ago . ILl take care of the details of this specimen.
