Amazing Beautiful Ultra Rare European Cave Hyena 12.75” Almost 100% Original w Small Cancerous Lump on Lowers

Gorgeous  Reddish Brown RAREST- of- RARE  EXTINCT Highest Quality& Original 12.75” CAVE HYENA  Skull  from Germany -Nothing from Europe has come in 20 years 

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   Look at the Color and Quality of this 12.75 Long Cave Hyena  “ long with Super Teeth . This is so amazing as there is nothing done on this and nothing out of Europe has been found in 20 years. This was in an old collection of one person for 30 years .  IT doe s have just a little work on thin bone above the huge canines , You can tell no restore as even a hole in left eye socket was not prepped . The lower is also from this animal which never happens until now. All teeth original A few were broken off in life and you can tell from healing of socket  It also has a cancer polp on lower jaw . This guy was an old one . Keep in mind I’ve only had 2 my entire life and the other was very good . That’s all I buy .  Most dealers in Europe have only seen pieces of this animal . The top European dealer I asked only ever had two in 30 years that were decent , which in itself for such a rare animal . This is probably the last great one I’ll ever see . . In fact the entire lowers are 99%  original  with just a small piece in back of 1 lower placed in . I would call this 99% original with all the skull compartments present and even the zygos are all original .You wont see a  better one  in the future . In fact you won’t see another .  I paid much more than normal due to quality . No other dealer has even seen one whole. Pieces and parts but no full skulls. And what a skull. This is the Rarest find in Europe  This  was cleaned off only basically  IM very blessed  . It was sitting in a fissure just above the river Rhine . The gorgeous color Id say its at least 30,000 years old .  This is brown I had one Russian one that was reddish .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

 

.  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 attacked huge animals like wooly rhinos, horses, wooly mammoth babies etc.  Its huge 12.75 inches and 9 inches wide so no compression. It has a beautiful stand also.  While nothing is perfect-this is as close as it gets - this will sell so fast to Europeans or Americans .  One tooth from upper is stuck on lower part of it . What a specimen .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. Only accept wires or Cashiers Check . What a specimen . If this doesn’t go to right person I wont sell it   For those of you are perfectionist and want very little or no resto this is it .  Some front teeth are broken with partials present ,at least 2 in life and one missing for sure in life . The collector loved this for 30 years and he has high expectations as I knew him well.  

 

Price:       $16,999 . IN this case you have to convince me its going to a great home well appreciated or Ill keep it

Geological strataGeological period: Late Miocene   11 MYA-5 MYA

 

Item location: eastern Kazahstsan  EUROASIA 

Item rating and description1-10 : 9.9   Largest Dog 16.5”   Ever BONE-CRUSHER Dinocrocuta Hyena ever - Mammal  Fossil From Eurasia -  Highly Original 10 Million year Old Giant Hyena  skull.  The only other one I had was 15 inches years ago . These aren’t available anymore as this was prepped for decades . . It was purchased in USA 25-30 years ago and recently prepped by the best in the world.  It was obtained in USA and it’s a top premium skull. In fact what is so fantastic is the teeth are all real whole teeth with all teeth original and lower to this animal’s upper. This was before work was done on these, and person who got it is a perfectionist and only gets the best . All was known to be there . Hardly any resto except a few spots. 98% original. I don’t even see any teeth repaired on this one. The darker color with spots  is so beautiful and rare . The teeth are absolutely huge 4 canines 2” long. Imagine facing this monster. It has metal stand that exhibits it so well that is so sturdy. It displays well on both sides. The entire skull is beautiful and natural. It’s simply an amazing piece. Has small amount of distortion on zygos which is common.  These are so rare in fact now this is last one I can get from a collector who owned it in collection for 25-30 years. You won’t see this again. IN fact the person since in matrix forgot he even had in in purchase decades ago. It was prepped recently but not much to do. There hasn’t been a recent one anywhere last 10 years at least . These are highly desirable . I've only seen a few of these in 30 years . THis animal had no waste . IT ate meat, organs   and bones so nothing left. I would say this was the most gruesome carnivore in history and more massive than the largest sabercat . This I believe the last one  that will ever be available due to how it was received as lost item found .

It is so colorful. The color is rare and  so appealing as a dark spotted huge skull. The color is brown spotted with beige and dark brown and some gray.  Lighting affects color of course  

     No other dog in history has ever been bigger . You can’t get these anymore at all I haven’t even seen one quite awhile in 15 years.  This is one-of-a kind . This will go so fast it will make your head spin. The pics will do the talking on this one  These hyenas are just like a dog with teeth that match but way bigger even though in Hyena category . All dog experts agree it’s a dog Displays so awesome .

This was the king and larger than the largest sabercat ever .

Almost Non-existent 2 Neanderthal Large Femurs( one 12”) From Known Area for Only Neanderthals w COA from Owner of Original finder over 50 years ago   

 Found Almost 50 Years ago  & at least 30,000 years old -Ultra Rare Amazing Early Man  -

Species :  Homo Neanderthalensis

Description-  Extinct Species of humans who lived in Eurasia until about 30,000  years ago . They originated generally thought about 500,000 years ago. Society was quite sophisticated  with fire making abilities  , building cave hearths, and making of stone tools.  They could make clothes  and ate a  wide variety of food mainly hoofed mammals , plants, birds and some aquatic  animals. They could make use of medicinal plants and were apex predators but competed with  cave bears, cave lions  and hyenas , and sabercats .

Time frame Dated Pleistocene est. 50,000-35,000 years ago 

Area Found :  Cave in region of Austurias 

Item rating and description 10  10 : These are so rare everyone can only dream of having a piece of our history. One femur has one end  that is worn  12 inches long and other has neither end . Normally these are real ,real expensive from my European contacts because only a few dozen exist in the world in private hands but here they are so reasonable  These are 100% Original and not only come with COA  about finders before  any caves became public .  These were probably found in 1975 and purchased in 1978 when it was purchased from finders in Europe. These were adult.   A map where found also comes with each piece and they were found deep inside the cave.  Few people ever have anything even if you want one  ,and due to amount of pieces known , IM offering these very cheap. Even small pieces way smaller than this would sell for this price.  This cave only Neanderthal have been found, and it’s famous. It’s was the best area for Neanderthal bones and these were found 1n 1975. All were found by paleontologists and collectors. Last chance to ever see one let alone purchase it. Neanderthal sections to my knowledge don’t exist in USA, and Europe probably a few museums but that is it. But something this rare period are amazing pieces . I had a femur with one end many years ago for 30 years and it sold for $6000   Not these.  Always I have a soft spot for our lineage so able to obtain after years of trying. To my knowledge no one has this in private hands in USA and few in Europe anymore.   No carbon dating has been done but is at least 35,000 years old and suspect older. In fact in 1994 13 individuals were found, and they were older and cannibalized in this same cave. IM not sure these were cannibalized or not. . This cave is extensive and people allowed in until late 1990s COA from owner about finder and location in cave  provided  So you get 2 for price of one .

 Price  $5999 Close out

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.

Magnificient One-of-Kind Early Miocene Unknown Male Species Beardog Skeleton

One-of-Kind EARLY MIOCENE Unknown Male BEAR-DOG Skeleton

Species: DAPHOENDON BOROCYON 

Species Description: Unknown MORE THAN RARE (NON-EXISTENT except this one) Extinct Species of Bear- Dog of Miocene existing for a few million years from 23-19 MILLION years ago . It was assigned to amphicyonids. While initially related to bears it is now found they may be basal caniforms . This is one of the most unusual carnivore . They were as tall as a black bear , and moved here from Eurasia in early Miocene . It weighed 150 kg and combines features of canine and feline predators . It resembled a giant dog with a flexible cat-like body . These bear-dogs with long limbs and specialized in chasing down prey on the open plains. Only two partial mandibles have been found in Nebraska , and a part of a lower jaw in Florida . This is of great scientific importance to everyone, and unlimited value . It was described in 2008 only so very recent partial finds. 

Geological strata: Early Hemingfordian 

Geological period: Early Miocene 19 MILLION YEAR OLD STRATA 

Item location: Dixie County , Florida 

Item rating and description:1-10 10 Large Early Miocene All Original Male Beardog Family :Daphoendon Genus :Borocyon Unnamed Unknown Species of BEAR DOG Highly Original . NO one on earth has anything of this animal and I have the whole skeleton with skull. Over 90% of skull is original bone and the skeleton is almost all bone with only a few smaller upper foot bone casts from a relative . Keep in mind this is one of a kind . No casts have ever been made so all inner bones and almost all foot bones are original beardog bones from 2 animals - male and female in a cave of the inner main bones all are from one beardog . Only one fibula had some restore . bula. The head and inner main bones with feet are beardog from this cave . This was a 2 year project and of extreme value to museums or someone who wants something unknown at super price . The quality, shape color is remarkable The ribs and verts were not found, and are bear, however ,we found from a similar species at American Natural History Museum that all ribs are just like beardog . Generally all items at top look like bear and all feet and lower plus tail are like dog hence Beardog . Resemble bear so much its an accurate portrayal . Since no casts exist its better to have bone that is almost exact to represent . Remember most skeletons anywhere including dinosaur rarely approach 70% . I estimate this over that .It has stain to match colors especially on bear ribs and verts, which match exactly rest of the beardog . The head and inner main bones are all one beardog with feet some of that beardog and others from it’s mate The bulk of it is one beardog. The skull is 14” and amazing and its mounted beautifully for your enjoyment. It comes in sections like each leg, pelvis and tail, head and verts as well as ribs and screwed in into an almost invisible frame that makes it so appealing . This is an amazing find as no one has this anywhere, no head no skeleton and shows the size . It was prepped well to show the creature in a highly original way. This has no papers describing it but we know it’s close to robustus which was only described from only a few pieces of skull-2 in Nebraska. This is of extreme scientific value and highly original. This has all teeth –some placed in from another animal the same species. Of course this is so rare this should not matter as you can’t get this anywhere .The teeth are fantastic and not even worn. Who has even another species of this? NO one is the answer. It was gotten from a friend, and it’s a treasure. It was professionally prepped with bone quality simply outstanding, and color great. You really can’t value THIS ITEM since not one exists. Beyond a museum piece, in my private collection. I’m so proud of this piece .I really can’t say anymore than here because nothing is known of this animal. You won’t find anything under this in google so here is your info. So you understand this species is unknown and its one of a kind No skeleton is complete and at most -most skeletons are 60-70% with casted parts. All but 3 bones are original on this so what you have here is a very complete almost all beardog which in unknown and its huge .The skull alone is worth $45,000 minimum 

It cost me a fortune over $60,000 in costs to mount , prep and pay for item. One auction house it was valued at 110-120,000 . Will deliver free in eastern part of USA $84,000 either thru driving or UPS pallet what a deal email me at paleoman@dinolandplus.com call 706-235-2694 This is an amazing find. Any museum it would be the highlight of its mammal collections Most beardogs were size of dog and only 1 named is bigger than this species. It died out 18 million years ago .This is being sold just above cost and was years of work. I THis is not rare-it doesn't exist anywhere on earth .

Amazing Dark Colored Beautiful 13 ” Cave Hyena Skull from Ultra Rare Location

RARE EXTINCT   Museum Quality Cave Hyena 13” OLD  HYENA 

Species:   Cave Hyena   crocuta crocuta spelaea

 

Species description: The cave hyena was a top predator in Asia and Europe.  These hyenas were  pack carnivores who hunted most every herbivore it wanted  , IT was one of larger ones  with only the dinocrocuta  and  adrocrocuta larger .It was about 8 ft long  IT 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 Northeastern China .This hyena was a highly specialized animal  that was so ruthless it could kill almost anything with its progressive and regressive features being more developed than the modern African species. IT preyed on large animals like wooly rhinoceros, red deer, giant deer and wild horses in Europe and Asia   .

It began over 2 million years ago as a species and was extinct about 30,000 years ago at end of Neanderthals . It would steal Neanderthals food also as documented, 30,0000 years ago it went extinct  due to competition with other predators and climate change, and loss of grasslands which they hunted. .

 

Geological strata: Late Miocene thru Pleistocene  Strata 

 

 Geological period: 2.5 million -30,000 Years ago 

 

Item location:  Russia 

 

Item rating and description: 1-10     9.9 This 13” Cave hyena  specimen is very rare due to location and its also very very old . It wasn’t tested but believed due to color of dark reddish brown to be possibly a million years old. Most specimens of cave hyeans are light colored all thru Europe but they in whole terms are so rare -this is amazing. These were vicious killers , and the beautiful color and high quality with what I can see just work done on palate make it special . Look how dark the teeth are also . It is at least 30,000 years old . This was found 20 years ago in a rare location close to deer bones so it was able to catch many types of prey including deer. This fossil  animal is top notch with only a few spots of resto over the skull, mainly on palate underneath .  It’s like an early huge giant dog , and this specimen displays so well. IT was a high quality prep job even though not a lot was done. While nothing is perfect this is so rare an animal and so complete no one can complain.  Its my first one complete, and first from this area. Germany is normal for these but so rare now it’s a treasure  and not expensive .

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. Geological strata: White River Formation Geological period: Oligocene Period 35- Early Miocene23 MYA 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 .
