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 60% of skeletal bones . 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.

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 .

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 FAMOUS MONSTER Extinct 23.5” Amazing Quality& Original  MALE CAVE BEAR Skull From Drachenhohle In Austria 

 

Species:  Ursus spelaeus 

 

 

Species description:  Large Bear from  Pleistocene that was previously only known in Europe but this which was larger than size  of a grizzly and lived 2.5 Million years ago -25,000 years ago in  Europe with large jaws and large bodies similar except bigger than modern bears  It lived in Europe at height of last Ice Age  and hibernated in European Caves to survive the winters  .  One cave Dragonhole in Austria contains remains of more than 30,000 bears  and many died in their sleep. It was hunted by Neanderthal people and was a  vegetarian despite the size of teeth. They were found at many locations also in Russia , but now very few –only Romania . This specimen is from that famous place 

 

Geological strata:  Pleistocene1.5 Million Years OLD  

 

Item Location:   Famous Drachenhohle(The Dragons Cave) near Mixnitz, Austria   This is more than 60,000 years old up to 100,000 years old 

 

Item rating and description : The most famous 23” x 13” WideMonster  Cave Bear is The Largest Extinct  Bear you will ever see from Drachenhohle near Minitz Austria. This is a Monster Cave bear -Largest I’ve ever seen . This Cave Bear was found in 1905s in the Drachenhohle(The Dragons Cave ) Near Mixnitz, Austria. It was excavated when no laws existed. There is no record of the Finder but he owned it   until 1965 when it was sold to H. Burki. The skull remained in his collection until 2022 when a friend in Belgium purchased if for me so really only 3 owners in 120 years . What is also  amazing the dark color indicates very old bear-in fact this one was found over 6 meters(18 ft ) of dirt which comes from cave ceiling over many tens of thousands of years so it’s well over 60,000years old, and it was found in a famous cave where over 30,000 cave bears back then at different levels were found as it was run later by a phosphate company who allowed people in to take them . What is unbelievable of these few exist and no one sells the ones they had so I’ve only seen a few Dragonhole cave bears in my lifetime . This one is in my personal collection and not for sale . Its just too good to part with and so hard to get this.  I have the COA with all info signed by him .  So this skull until 2022 never left Austria in over120 years.  Also the oldest bears in Europe are from Dragonhole .

Next the quality is so good even areas of normal resto aren’t restored like zygomatic arches , backs of lowers, lower front which almost all bears have resto but not this one. IT only has a few spots so 98% original , which is so fantastic I can't let this one go, but have one more .I see only 1 tooth that probably came from another cave bear  .   It's mammoth and  wide.  European Austrian Male Bear with Super Bone Quality. All Teeth with x-Nice Canines are natural teeth . Cave Bears are no longer found as this species is from an old, old, collection and no more in decades  have been discovered. The size at 23” no one has ever seen.  They used to be found in caves all over Europe, and Russia, Austria ,Belgium, Germany ,  Romania, France  but now all caves are closed to public. These have gotten very, very rare as only the old collections have them. Not many of these people will sell them so now demand is high, and supply very low. This means prices will be going up a lot and one day if I sell will be worth a lot . The prices have doubled in the last 2 years, and this one is even better and so huge. Drachenhohle( Austrian German Name ) adds so much value it’s just unbelievable to have this , and this is better and bigger than any I’ve seen in 25 years.. The color, no wear on teeth, and natural completeness is really amazing on this skull.  It doesn’t get better than this for bear lovers like me.  Ill gladly keep it. YOu can hardly believe how hard it was to get this specimen -months and months.The largest bear ever . No one has one thios big from  Dragonhole Austria 

$16,999   real steal

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 . Geological strata: Upper Whitneyan and Early Arikareean Age Geological Time frame: 30-27.7 MYA Item location: Pennington County , SD Item rating and description:1-10 10 Gorgeous Small Ultra Rare Eusmilus Saber-tooth Cat 5.5” .

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 .

Top Quality 98% Plus Original Gorgeous Smilodon Forerunner MEGANTEREON SABER-CAT Huge 11” x 5” Skull w 5” Long Sabers

Top Quality 98% Plus Original  BEAUTIFUL Smilodon Forerunner  MEGANTEREON   SABER-TOOTH CAT Huge 11” x 5” SKULL w 5” Sabers Yeah 5 inch 

Species : Megantereon  cultridens 

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  and mostly found in ASia  

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

Item location:   Asia 

 

 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, and Asia  . 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 .

It did survive the last glaciation period unlike most all other mammals of its time as it was hardy and could withstand most anything but man

Rating and item description : 1-10 9.5   VERY RARE HUGE 32”  WOOLY  RHINOCERAS Whole SKULL  w /All Natural  Teeth with Beautiful Brown Color. IT is very High and also 15 Inches Wide.  The Upper is 100% Natural with only 1 crack fill and 2 teeth placed in perfectly to complete . This was in my personal collection so never seen before.   The lower had very back articulation point repaired and reconstructed bone. The rest of lower was found whole and jaws were together.  This lower matches perfect with color, size in most areas except the back of lower which was reconstructed so it is from this Rhino. I’ve only had a few of these in 25 years, and now no one will be getting any more  . According to my friend in Belgium as of the first of year Russia has laws now of items leaving country which are  mainly fees procured by government before leaving but no import laws here. Since this was in my collection I had no interest anyway of getting something from Russia of course .  This was bought in USA as it was here for many years in my collection . This is from an old collection for decades in a warehouse, and never prepped until I did the prep. These are found only in Russia now, but used to be Poland, Belgium, Netherlands , and a number of Eastern Europe Countries, as none in Europe have been found in years due to most areas including home caves being now off limits unless private property.  While this has no large horns,  I do have some juvenile horns you can get very inexpensive . If it was a large horn  the price would be over $50,000, so it’s a way of getting a real horn cheap as you will never have an opportunity again to get a real one -either skull or  horn. I saw one with a horn in Tucson this year for $80,000 that was there for many years  . Only a few ever have the smaller horn real as only a handful have ever been found. All 4 molars on each side are present. It’s a great representation of the species. The lines and attributes are fine and the top, back, and front are perfect with all bone original on the upper . The top upper in front have little projectiles called protuberances which are so detailed and not worn and many don’t have near the detail as this one.   Keep in mind only Russia has these now, and you can get this one  in USA as I did  . I will not send this to Europe only USA . IT displays well on its molars and I’ve seen these on ebay for $20,000-$30,000  with fake horns so step up to the plate and hit a home run and buy this. It is heavy but can be carried or mailed on a skid   . I see huge upside investment in this piece for any of you and hope you see it too as you won’t be seeing these ever in future . Due to color this one looks old . I can’t tell on this one if a Female or Male    Online only a few exist and one at ebay with no backs of lowers is 33,000 and one at well known fossil shop is $42,000 just for the skulls so mine is dirt cheap

Gorgeous Reddish Brown Rarest of Rare Extinct Highest Quality & Originality 12.5” CAVE HYENA Skull

Gorgeous  Reddish Brown RAREST- of- RARE  EXTINCT Highest Quality& Original 12.5” CAVE HYENA  Skull 

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    9.8 Look at the Color and Quality of this 12.5 Long Cave Hyena  “ long with Super Teeth . On right side you can even see the root of the cannines with all teeth  100% original to this skull , which in itself for such a rare animal . This is probably the last great one Ill ever see . IT even has the back of the lowers real . In fact the entire lowers are 100%  original and the pnly restore is on the under palate a piece and front of upper which is normal . I would call this 97% original with all the skull compartments present and even the zygos are all original .You wont see a  better one  in the future . I did have two great ones  perfect that both sold for $16,000 about the same size and   . I checked with all European dealers and only 2 ever sold a skull, and those 2 were only 80%. No other dealer has even seen one. Pieces and parts but no full skulls. And what a skull. . This is the Rarest find in Europe and with my other 2  the best ever found from searching all literature in history . This was cleaned off only sealant to protect and those 2  small areas . I have only seen a few good whole skulls just partials , and I’ve owned them all. IM very blessed  . It was sitting in a cave protected from many thousands of years . The the color Id say its at least 50,000 years old . The red color is amazing .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 . All animals in this area are dark . but whole skull are rarely found . The ones in Europe are light.  This could be the areas of first ones due to color 500,000 years old. 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 attracted huge animals like wooly rhinos, horses, wooly mammoth etc.  Its huge 12.5 inches and 9 inches wide so no compression. It doesn’t need a stand -just fits together like cave bears . Where can you get a top predator this good. It’s amazing .This specimen displays so well with total originality This is worth a fortune.  People in Europe are different from USA –they like totally natural 100% but will take partial animals more than prepped animals but this is so good it can be owned by anyone who wants to premium bone . While nothing is perfect this will sell so fast to Europeans or Americans . One tooth repaired. These go for way more than I want especially from an area few have been found .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. Even poor ones in Europe go for more than I’m asking Call on this one.  Keep in mind only 2 dealer has even seen one in Europe and Asia until now . Only accept wires or Cashiers Check . This reddish color is so beautiful I decided to keep this in my collection
