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 4.5 MYA AND EUROPE &ASIA  . This cat was the forerunner to the American Smilodon .Fossils are found here .  In fact an entire skeleton was found in France close to where this skull was found many years ago. 

Geographical Area: 2.5-2 Million years ago –this fossil –Overall  Species 15-2 MYA Miocene –Pliocene

Item location:    France 

 

 Item description & rating: 1-10  9.9    THIS IS ONE-OF-A Kind Sabercat 11 " Long like a Smilodon(same size)  . This is the closest sabercat to a Smilodon and looks much like it in every way . Sabers are huge just not quite as big as Smilodons   Unbelievable OF HIGHEST QUALITY Smilodon-like Saber –tooth Cat Large for species . Many people do not know this cat due to rareness but this saber  cat is my favorite due to size of skull per saber size . Smilodon are just as large on skull but the  only one bigger on sabers by a few inches. SO you get a great quality cat for way less than a  Smilodon.  This cat was in my collection but now it can be yours .

     The upper, lowers, and teeth are basically all original with even few repairs. It’s one of best you will ever see. It has some distortion which is typical for these cats which means nothing to me except it’s so original the prepper didn’t even want to fix it thru air expansion . Even though lowers are  original to this cat.   The 5“ is much larger than  any other cat except Smilodon  for even the Largest of all sabercats called  Machairdous – and  all real perfect  teeth. The sabers are amazing(  5”) as said and all original with a few even break repairs. These are so rare but I got 2  from the same area after 12 years of having none.  I doubt if I’ll see any again . Even backs of lowers are almost perfect bone and zygos -areas of restore normally.  

   These are so rare so IM lucky to have this. I had one 15 years ago on top of a horse and fell in love with species then. It was forerunner to Smilodon .The teeth again are 100% original with little or no repair. The only flaw if you can call it that is a small distortion due to pressure on one zygomatic arch . I’m the cat guy and only had a few of these over 20 years and I only get the best. I had not even seen one in 7 years before these 3.  These are found in USA as piece material and in France . It has been here many years unprepped and finally finished as I bought in USA. The bone is super color with mostly beige -white which is normal. The teeth are so magnificent and beautiful and all there. It’s just amazing and the size is normal  for this cat. It’s just as big as a Smilodon in USA but much cheaper too when I decide to sell . Few cats I've had of any species that are this good . IM not sure if female or male as males get a little larger but do believe it’s the larger male . I study cats and know them like a book and have the top expert in the world as a friend .  It may be in the top 10 of all these ever found in quality. Values a have grown a lot.  These are never this good so a real treat. Prep was done superbly. Pictures do not do this cat justice at all. You will never see this again and with  Highest Quality  . Simply Amazing Find . This could go for a hundred thousand but not here.  Behold the huge meg  with the largest sabers other than Smilodon on the planet  .  Christies told me personally this is worth 150,000 with them but I don't like auction houses . So why pay 300,000 for a Smilodon you will never see anyway when you can get this similar cat for an amazing. This is your only chance to get in my opinion the most beautiful sabercat .

Species : Hoplophoneus dakotenis

 

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.

Geological Timeframe :  Orellan , Oligocene  Approx 30 MYA 

 

Item location : Shannon County  , SD

 

 

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.8  Gorgeous est. 85% Original  Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat  Skull 8”    long with2  long 2.75” Sabers-both real . One tip has small resto .  Both are real which today is unheard. Its high quality  and haven’t had a 2 saber Oligocene cat in years . Its not perfect some resto mainly one back of lower , which is normally 2  restored . It’s a very very good cat 5” wide with all premolars and molars original from same cat . Some incisors  -larger ones also real with some restored on upper and lower . It had some repairs due to some crushing but came out so great . This is the only one at Tucson show this year and normally I get 4-5 cats . None were found last year at all of This cat appears so great . Every cat I get from this area from one person sells so fast due to quality of cat. It’s amazing  You just cant get 2 sabers real anymore from the same animal as this one so it is special .You won’t see a better quality cat anymore. The lower jaw is original to this cat also which is rare. They are so hard to get anymore.  The teeth are so appealing and love the bone also.  Incisors are almost never real and many of these are on top and bottom. Sabers are so beautifully prepped and brown colored. On upper only a little on zygos are restored with a few spot fills and condyles   On lower only one side at top of back except spot fills is restored which is amazing . This cat is worth a fortune.  The metal display makes this so presentable with metal uprights  and is rare for any cat -which makes it stable and so pleasing to the eye . Anyway . Here it is. Words don’t do this justice . I sell 6-10 sabercats per year normally but may not get anymore , and this will go fast at this price . All have sold.   This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. An animal this good should go for over what IM charging as 2 sabers is impossible on American cats .I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. This is only one I have .  I have more pics if you need it.   Cats have gone up a lot so here it is. Every year they appreciate more also so great investment. This species is rare also  Look at those sabers long and wide .  These have risen alot for us to purchase and no one has them for sale anymore so demand is high and supply is almost nonexistent  Not this time as Ive sold many with 1 saber at this price . SO better quality at better price .

Beautiful Amazing Highly 98%Original Dinictis Skull Saber-tooth Cat w Skeleton w All Original Teeth Incl Incisors

Beautiful Amazing  Dinictis Sabertooth Cat Skeleton w Skull with all Original Teeth 

 

Species:    Dinictis squalidens Saber- Cat

 

Species description:   The long –legged dinictis with razor –sharp sabers was the smallest and the earliest  saber-tooth cat  that roamed North America beginning in the Eocene Period 45 MYA -23 MYA . They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habits and diet , and were solitary predators 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. Most skulls  were about 7.5 inches long

 

Geological strata: Upper Nodular Zone , Scenic Member  Brule Formation-early Dinictis

 

Geological period:  35-34 MYA Orellan 

 

Item location: Private Land Directly from Landowner in Custer County , South Dakota  

 

Item rating and description: 1-10  9.7   SIMPLY THE BEST DINICTIS SABERCAT SKULL (98%) with Complete Skeleton . My breath is taken away with this skeleton of a Dinictis American Sabercat I’ve had for awhile unprepped but now its prepped and beautiful .  The measurements of base are 49” long, x 12” wide, and 24” high  with body all within these measurements . Cat length is within but curved due to spine and tail so over 49” .The skull is the best I ever saw at over 97% original  with some repairs with only a small upper back of one lower jaw restored some of sagittal crest and zygomatic arches repaired  and 2 full real  sabers. Never saw a skull this good ever on American sabercats    The skull is about 7 inches long . All teeth are original even the incisors are almost all there and none restored .The sabers are 1 ¾ “ normal for this Dinictis.   This is rare as it’s an early dinictis so not real large which we expect for this species .   All but one of inner leg bones arm and leg  is real bone -main bones of any cat besides the  skull. They started small. I never saw an USA skull this original. The skeleton after thorough review and talks with the prepper  is a combination  of cast and real bone. Ribs were too fragile so we had to use casts for those. There are about 6 whole  vertebrate with parts of others on neck , dorsals and tail  so a fair amount  casts but many at least partials  . The feet are mostly real bones with even ½ sheaths and claws real bone with scapula and pelvic bones partial real but mostly casts . IT has a rod thru the spinal column for stability and new great way to mount . Original bones with arms  wrists original  and with feet the larger bones including feet real with some  ankle area bones casts.  Even ½ of claws are original. All original teeth is absolutely unheard of for a cat IN USA . And as far as total skeleton bone composition  by length since inner main bones all whole and real -Id estimate 70% of skeleton is original . So combined you have with 98% skull you have an amazing creature on display easy to assemble

 

  Its mounted in a modern way with little stand showing and its EVER SAW . A rod is thru the spinal column thru first and last vert.   It doesn’t get any better than this cat also have searched for 8 years for perfection only to be denied , but not this time . This cat has everything- beautiful color, all original teeth, perfect sabers, skull with almost every square inch original and a pose where you can see all teeth upper and lower.  Most cats are no more than 60 % including head but head is an amazing 97% at least 

 

It is really something special.  They just don’t come like this cat, and took years to get ready thru mounting. I had to have it and you will feel the same after looking at the pics. This worth so much but can’t sell it yet. Ill take offers but will not sell for a few years.  True value about $75-80,000  but seen many not this good for much more.

Can't sell it now  but call 706-235-2694 as Ill take offers and  timing but cant guarantee Id sell it

Splendid High Quality Rarest of Oligocene Sabercats 9.5” PogonodonSkull w 6 Verts w Atlas

Splendid High Quality Rarest of USA Oligocene Sabercats 9.5” Pogonodon Skull w Verts& Atlas Species: Pogonodon cismontamus(Platycopis) Saber- Cat Skull 82-85% Species description: One of earliest Nimravidae endemic to North America and Eurasia .A Nimravid saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period 30.8MYA -7.2MYA . They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habits and diet , and were solidary predators 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. Their sabers are smaller than a Dinictis normally but not this specimen as shown with this specimen and estimated weight was around 70 lbs . This fossil is so rare it has little written about it .It lived at least 23.6 Million years This specimen is so big the sabers are much bigger than a Dincitis, and one of rarest fossils on earth Geological strata: Uppermost Brule Formation Just below uppermost nodules in the White Zone Just at bottom of Sharps Formation Geological period: 32-24 MYA This one 32-30 MYA –Top of Layers so a later more advanced one - Item location: White River Badlands -Shannon County , S Dakota Item Rating & Details :1-10 10 To have two of the rarest of Oligocene cats -a Pogonodon Skull is so amazing when I have had 2 total in 25 years as the catman. It also has 6 neck verts including an atlas that is so appealing. The color is so great darker tan which is so unusual. This is one of most greatest finds in America in the Sabercat world. This one is darker, and just so magnificent. I’m the luckiest guy in the world. The rareness of this cat plus the high quality make this the ones Ill remember most even though I’ve had hundreds of cats over 25 years. It’s a POGONODON HIGHLY ORIGINAL SABER-TOOTH CAT that has such high actually bone quality . The molars. premolars and carnasials are original however,the upper and lower front teeth are casted with a few repaired. I have sold many cats but these 2 take the cake. What makes this such a great find is originality of the bone skull is an amazing 95% and these just aren’t found. All the teeth are pleasing even though some casted. On a Dinictis or Hoplo that effects value but not near as much on an animal that is huge for Oligocene cats and so rare only a few have been found. It has been IDed by a knowledgeable authority as well as myself who has been around the cat world. Keep in mind other sabercats of this timeframe are much smaller by a few inches . If you get a 60% one your excited and that has extreme value . I recently sold a Nimravus not as rare for $20 thousand and not as big by far. The prep work was fantastic as it is exceptionally done . The zygos are even real and well as almost all the upper except small section in back of worth just a little restored . The lowers are amazing even with most of back original. The color, shape and rareness is just unmatched and have only seen a few of these my entire life. I have one in my collection but this I still hate to sell but will if price is right I will WHAT A Great cat. A LIFETIME KEEPER and one of a few that exist including museums. BONE QUALITY unmatched anywhere I know of only the 2 I have now for sale . These are believed to be developed from the dinictis genus which is the smallest of the American cats but just look at this one. To get one with an atlas and 5 other neck verts attached on a display is so awesome . Price $24,995 (Great price for a great cat that has 6 verts attached call 706-235-2694 Only paid by wire or checks

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 .

This cat is so special I still can’t hardly believe I have one. Only a few in the entire world exist with a few museums in USA and Europe , and only 2 private collections exist as known and I’m one of them . 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 Gorgeous Exceptional 7.5” Dinictis Saber-tooth Cat Skull with 1 Complete Saber& Tip of other Species: Dinictis Felina Saber- Cat Skull Species description: The long –legged dinictis with razor –sharp sabers was the smallest and the earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Eocene Period 45 MYA -23 MYA . They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habits and diet, and were solitary predators 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. Most skulls were about 7.5 inches long. Geological strata: White River Formation Geological period: 40-35 MYA Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 This skull is so beautiful , and highly original . Its an early Dincitis which you can tell due to size of 7.5 inches and also location that I know well. The sabers are about 2” long which is normal above many this era. One saber is all there but the other has ½ inch of the tip real with the rest restored. I’d estimate 80-85% original, which for an Oligocene cat amazing . The skull is mighty fine also with approx. 85% original with resto on some of saggital crest plus backs of lowers. The teeth on upper are all real including the incisors and canine incisors . Again the teeth are highly original and hardly any repair on upper except part of one saber . On bottom the smaller incisors and 1 molar & 1 premolar are restored . This cat is great. Restored minimal areas including saggital crest, few spots on top , ½ of one zygo , and one back of lower . For those who do not know that is so minimal . It was expertly prepped and rest of skull is totally original. I’ve had only had a few better than this one and expect this to sell fast. I sell 6-8 per year last 10 years. While some cats only occasionally show up, this is still quite good . Few people have these to sell as I do . You just won’t find them so those still expecting perfection will wait years and years and never get one. This cat has most everything- beautiful color, most original teeth, great sabers, excellent originality of skull and it’s open mouth mounted. What is the most amazing on this cat it was no distortions. The shape is perfect. This occurs only 1 out of 20 cats so this is great . On all sides it works to display on nice display mount also. It is really something. I looked at this so long as I could not find much resto. They just don’t come like this cat, so for you people who want a lot here it is. I had to have it and you will feel the same after looking at the pics .This worth so much more so no discounts.

Using their highly developed saber-teeth they would likely sever the blood supply in the neck of their prey in the initial attack. Most skulls were about 7.5 inches long Geological strata: White River Formation Geological period: 35-23 MYA Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota Item rating and description: 1-10 9.3 Highly Original (est 80%) Open Mouth Adult Dinictis 8” that has high quality bone with amazing dark color with one real saber on left side. The other is casted. Cats are the highest demand item in the fossil world as most everyone wants one so here it is at a great price. I’m not known as the Catman for nothing. Here is another one you can buy now. This is so attractive, and while found in same county it was a higher level or later time in Oligocene where cats grew larger. The Dinictis was the first sabercat on Earth. The size is above average on this cat. The sabers are 2.25”. For this time period sabers are average size. Any cat 75% or above on originality now is super because cats much rarer now due to fewer being found, and this time frame almost all mammal fossils that is about the best you can get anymore. This cat is so attractive. People love these darker cats as only 1 in 20 are dark due to color of soil in the area. Areas of restore and repair are the zygomatic arches, sagital crest, little on top of skull, all incisors, and 1 molar on side teeth. Rest are all real teeth. The lower jaw has the backs restored which is normal on almost all of them. One side has only a little at top. I’m the only one who gets cats from this area. The one saber is great, and other looks exactly like the real one. Cats are going now for so much because demand is high, and few are found. This open mouth mounted on an oak base (which can be stained if you wish) is appealing to me. This allows you to get a cat at a low price, as a friend offered it to me at a good price. This doesn’t occur any more. One with 2 sabers like this goes for 13,000 as you see some at site if you wish that.-It’s a hoplo. This is your opportunity for someone with not unlimited resources to get one -and the first sabercat at that. You can buy on time also- $1000 per month on layaway will do. Bone looks so good, so this is your chance. I haven’t had a nice Dinictis in a while-now I have 2 -but not for long, as I have 2 hoplos now with 2 sabers at site under sabercats. My prepper who did this one so well. This cat has everything- beautiful dark color, many original teeth, nice upper. Just feast your eyes on this. This price is a 4 year ago price. It can be shipped safely. here is your chance to get a reasonable priced cat to satisfy your dream . Values have gone up but not this one .

MOST COMPLETE RAREST OF RARE ADELPHAILURUS kansensis SABER-TOOTH CAT 11” SKULL

Species: Adelphailurus kansensis Species Description: This is rarest of all sabertooth cats in USA that lived from early Miocene 6-8 MYA and were the size of a modern cougar or puma . Its body also had the same shape as a puma also, and had long compressed upper canine-sabers that hunted small birds and mammals in ambush . This cat is a false saber-tooth cat and had retained a second upper premolar, which is unusual for a cat . It was the second largest of the late Miocene cats and was an Eurasian immigrant. It was a metailurus cat, which besides this species and one other was only found in Asia and a few in Europe. It is not one of the top 6 saber-cats found and has only been found with partials with top of skull never found in USA according to reading all documents . It was identified by Hilbert in 1934 with only a few skull pieces and a few partial bones ever found so this skull is the most complete skull known to exist. A partial humerus, radius, ulna first phalanx and was named after the first skull jaw section found in Kansas. Most of bones found in Arizona in this small area, and one found in Bone Valley, Florida also. Geological formation: Milk Creek Formation Geological period: 8-6 MYA Miocene Early Hempghilian Tribe-Metailuri Genus: metailurus Item Location: Congress Junction, Arizona Item rating and description: (1-10) 10 AMAZING 11” Long x 7” wide agape Adelpharilurus kansensis saber-tooth cat SKULL-The Most complete ever found . This is an amazing piece as this is the most in one skull of its species ever found as only a few skull fragments exist . While it does have a large amount of restore much of lowers are real bone with teeth plus one upper maxilla with teeth are original to one animal. IN other words with 3 jaws 3 of 4 molar teeth pairings are original and the back of cat is original plus one original saber plus part of side of upper. The rest is filled in so % is still about 40% original-estimate. This cat is so amazing and so well prepped it’s a treat to look at. Again while not highly original it’s the best ever found so this is for people who want a one of a kind this is it. For your perfectionists which I know some- do not even try to buy this. I want someone who appreciates this large cat eventually but really do not intend to sell ever Again this is the most complete one of its species ever found so no perfect ones exist and probably never will . This is the most complete ever skull so one of a kind
