The Most Beautiful, Perfect, Unusual Fossil Ever- ULtra Life Death Struggle of a Sabercat & MegaHorse

Species : Megantereon inexpectatus & Megahorse (Sinohippus species unknown )

Species description : . Built like a modern jaguar but heavier . It had stocky forearms with the lower half of these forelimbs lion-sized. It delivered a shearing bite with 5 “ sabers . Per size of skull it had the largest sabers per head area of any saber-tooth cat. It originated in North America 4.5MYA and went to Europe and Asia . This cat was the forerunner to the American Smilodon so evolved into Smilodon of LaBrae . Fossils are found here (just pieces) and in Europe and Asia . In fact an entire skeleton was found in France close to where this skull was found many years ago . The Megahorse in France is even rarer It’s a Huge Horse that is so rare only 2 known . So few that nothing much is even written about it but it was huge like a Clydesdale horse today.

Geographical Area: Overall Species 10-.5 MYA Miocene –Pliocene

Item location: Cave Underground in Les Etouaries over 40 years ago ,France

Item description & rating: 1-10 10 Unbelieveable OF HIGHEST QUALITY 12” Upper Skull Forerunner Megantereon inexpectatus SABER-TOOTH CAT with Huge 5” Sabers –all real Plus the rarest Largest Extinct Horse in the World called a Megahorse. The megahorse is 25 inches long like a Clydesdale nowdays. These fossils tell a great story . The sabercat jumped on the horse while it was in quicksand and died immediately as it broke off its outer Jaw. Anyone knows you break your bottom jaw and you die. This cat bit off more than it could chew, and sank in quicksand with the horse. This is my second most prized possession but my favorite . It’s been in my collection for 25 years. No one has anything like this in the world. Two extremely rare animals both 100% original with highest quality possible - both interlocked in a death scene. The only known full skeleton of the Meg was found in this area , and only 1 other Megahorse was ever found in France. The cat was the forerunner to Smilodon in USA . All teeth original on both animals teeth. This cat had Sabers over 5 “ Long and all teeth 100% original to this cat. These are found in USA occasionally but this one was found in France many, many years ago in early 80’s , and purchased here in USA 30 plus years ago from a French dealer from what I’m told. Previous owner had it 20 years also. While the megantereon originated here no one has found a complete skull only teeth and partial jaws The bone is super beige color with darker brown lines throughout and the teeth are so magnificent with all teeth original. Not many are found anywhere. To me this is the greatest Fossil in the World ,and many has told me this used to have on site 15 years ago and had so much response I took it off until now . I don’t want to sell it just share it with the world . Pictures follow . It doesn’t get any better than this. It will be in MY collection forever . Enjoy . Im sure you will think its the best fossil anywhere also. It;s a pure materpiece that is a work of nature that is beyond words . YOu can’t help to visulaize and wonder how this happened where a saber-cat and Huge Horse are locked in this death struggle
