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

ULTRA RARE EARLY HOPLOPHONEUS OREODONTIS SKULL 7.5 inch skull 85%

Species: Beautiful Hoplophoneus Saber- Cat Skull oreodontis-First hoplo saber cat ever (2nd ever to Dinctis )

Species description: The long –legged Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of largerone)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 strata: LOWER BRULE

Timeframe : 40-34MYA

Item location: Shannon County , SD

Item rating and description:1-10 10 on Rarity This is the 2nd sabertooth cat ever in the entire world as its a very early Hoplophoneous sabertooth. Sabertooths originalted here in USA and this was second only to Dinictis . Gorgeous 7 ½ ” Rarer Hoplophoneus- Early Cat Skull in Excellent Shape . Some people say this was combined into priveavus species but as a White River expert with others ts divided to another species it’s an amazing find This is actually not primaveus, and is a really rare oreodontis species that has top quality at 85% . The teeth are great on premolars but incisors and sabers are casts This is uch a rare species I’ve only had one in 20 years before this. For a true collector this is a must skull . It was the early hoplo -the first ever in fact .This is an old cat and primeavus would be bigger . It was found in very early rock which lower Brule is. Repair on one cheek , backs of both lowers and a few small spots own upper but top quality for such a rare skull . Even with sabers these never come around. All the rest is original cat . My last one sold for a lot over 14,000 and this is better . Cat of USA are so hard to find anymore. Its almost impossible . If you read some articles many scientists have combined this into primeavus but the institute says this is definitely a different very rare species as they have only had a few of these in over 40 years , and its guaranteed a new rare species oreodontis so its –just too valuable .This wont be around again .This would go for $18.000 -20,000 if not for sabers so its a great chance to get a great skull fore the money

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 .

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 .

Top Fossil in the World-100% Original Great MEGANTEREON Saber-cat 12” Upper Skull & 25” Megahorse

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 . An update we believe meg was found in Africa 6 MYA but not confirmed from the pieces This cat was the forerunner to the American Smilodon so evolved into Smilodon of LaBrae . Fossils are found here (just pieces) and in Africa , It doent get any better than this 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 than the Cat. 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. At 3.5 million years ago it’s firmly recorded in Africa -with some believed now to be 6 MYA old around Kenya of today and about 2.5 million in parts of Asia . In Europe where this specimen was found the earliest was a little less than 2.5 MYA

Geographical Area: Overall Species 6.5 MYA MYA Miocene –Pliocene

Item location: Underground Limestone Pit in Les Etouaries 40 years ago ,France in a pit that used to be Sand and Silt Quicksand .This one is about 2 Million Years OLD

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 . Even some experts think the matrix was put in but it was found with entire matrix covering the 2 animals and matrix chipped away and smoothed so even matrix is real . Of course it doesn’t matter anyway on value Its original matrix as well as all original bone . It doesn’t get any better than this. It will be in MY collection forever . Enjoy . I’m sure you will think its the best fossil anywhere also. It’s a pure masterpiece that is a work of nature that is beyond words . You can’t help to visualize and wonder how this happened where a saber-cat and Huge Horse are locked in this death struggle fighting for their lives in a limestone quicksand pit . This solution is what caused the color of the animal as in mix hardened over millions of years

NOT FOR SALE call 706-235-2694 to talk about it Alan Stout (Owner of dinolandplus.com ). It doesn’t get any better than this.

Value : Priceless Its my most admired piece after my Full American Lion Skeleton

Beautiful One-Of-a Kind HOMOTHERIUM Saber Cat 13 ” Long

Beautiful ULTRA-RARE Adult HOMOTHERIUM Saber-Cat

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 built like a modern
lion that had about 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 Skeletonshave only been found in Texas . It looks like megantereon, however much shorter
sabers and less sized lowersaberguard and sabers reached to end of lower jaw as this one does. It reached 1.1 meters at shoulder . As said as compared to

megantereon,and gripping force . The skull was longer than smilodon, and machairodus its sabers were relatively short. It provided a great
punchuring and gripping force. This jawhas turned down flanges to protect the scimitars. It has large canine teeth
that 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 were hyena –like . Forelegs elongated while hind legs were rather squatwith feet plantograde causing back to slope down towards a short tail similar
to a lion. It had a large nasal cavity opening like a cheetah which allowed greater 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 megantereon . It hunted in packs and not only killed mammoths but
also rhinoceros juveniles .

Geographic Time frame: possible Early Pleistocene

Item description: and rating : 1-10 10 X-Ultra Rare Beautiful Complete AdultFemale Homotherium Scimitar Sabercat Skull 13 “ long . It is 98% original bones and 100% Org Teethwith one incisor absent but naturally missing as it probably broke off in a kill or fight (per noted authority who wrote a book on scimitar cats ). The socket was filled with natural bone, and the lower matching tooth as less wornindicating the cat lost it long before it had a chance to wear down the opposing incisor so the pathology tells a story while this sabercat was alive .I have wanted a whole one for years and the opportunity was afforded from from a friend who is a top expert on these creatures , and this will be admired byme and ones who read this and never sold . Another owns this now and I’m selling for them . IT was originally from a German dealer a year ago . Most were about 13-14 inches long so this is an adult . This has shoter and wider sabers than a megantereon, as they go well past the saber guard in size. This is one of most complete skulls you would ever find with lowers. Only a number of them have been found in a Texascave and 2 in Florida and a handful in China and Europe . The great thing about this species it is a form ofcrenatidens but a different unclassified species that needs researched even more so we can safely say only a few exist . I have never seen another for saleanywhere in 20 years . AS someone who knows a lot on cats said the species is close to Xenosmulus but different so no species has been classified to date , .Anyway its so rare has been classified under crenatidans for now . Wow what a sabercat IM selling this for a friend soI don’t have it myself , but can get it to mail quickly .

Beautiful Gorgeous Exceptional 7.5” Dincitis Sabertooth Cat Skull w Complete Saber & Part of Other

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. This is from a low formation which makes it one of first saber cats ever. 90% ones go for over 12,000 now .

Splendid Dark-Color Very Good 8” Open -Mouth Dinictis Sabertooth Cat Skull w 1 Original Saber(2.25”)

Splendid Dark-Color Very Good Quality 8” Open-Mouth Dinictis Sabertooth Cat Skull with 1 Original Saber(2.25”) on a Display Stand

Species: Dinictis Squalidens

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 EocenePeriod 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: 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 .
