Species: Hoplophoneus primaveus

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.

The right one I believe is real . It was found by a top hunter last year . It is so well prepped it is impossible to tell any repaired or restored areas which are few. The color, shape , teeth, bone quality are impeccable . MY prepper said so many great things about this cat. It’s not perfect but really gorgeous . It’s one of the most beautiful cat you will ever find. Due to rareness prices have soared for wholesale . The Bone quality is magnificent. This cat is the most highly desired vertebrate fossil in the world due to its resemblance to Smilodon and old age. The upper skull was just outstanding as I saw it before prepped and had everything, and stood out as magnificient pure shape and completeness including almost all of sagittal crest. The lowers have a little restore in back as most do. This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. An animal this good should go for a lot more than I’m asking now, as I’ve seen many sell for thru the years. I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. The size is huge as are sabers. You rarely find them this big but here it is. I have more pics if you need it. Prices to get these have risen as few are found anymore. No cast were visible this year at show as I had to call all my contacts and make arrangements before so you can’t get these anymore. I just can’t ever say enough about this cat . If not appreciated I will glad keep it for my personal collection.. Entire skull is so great you’ll be sorry if you go for a cheaper 70% skull . If you can afford this it’s a beauty.

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 .

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 .

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, andmachairodus 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 .

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 .

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.

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.2 Gorgeous est 85% Original Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Skull 7.25 long with long 2.75” Sabers. This cat appears so great . Many incisors are real on this cat and almost all the teeth are. The back 2 molars on lower jaw are missing. Both sabers have a large middle pieces real but tip and upper part restored. The teeth are really very very good on this cat and just look great . The lower jaw is original to this cat also which is rare . They are so hard to get anymore .They were repaired some but lowers appear really good. The upper I can’t find a lot either . 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 light colored which you don’t see a lot . On upper only sagittal crest and maybe a little on zygos are restored with a few spot fills On lower only one side at top of back except spot fills is restored which is amazing . This cat is worth a fortune. The wood 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 6-8 sabercats per year 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 10,000 ,as I’ve seen many sell for thru the years .I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. I have more pics if you need it. Also this cat was obtained by a good friend who knows something about cats I would say who has a nice collection. Cats have gone up a lot so here it is. Every year they appreciate more also so great investment . remeber entrie middle secrtion of both sabers are original .
