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 . This cat was the forerunner to the American Smilodon so evolved into Smilodon of LaBrae . Fossils are found here (just pieces) and in Europe and Asia . In fact an entire skeleton was found in France close to where this skull was found many years ago . The Megahorse in France is even rarer It’s a Huge Horse that is so rare only 2 known . So few that nothing much is even written about it but it was huge like a Clydesdale horse today.
Geographical Area: Overall Species 10-.5 MYA Miocene –Pliocene
Item location: Cave Underground in Les Etouaries over 40 years ago ,France
Item description & rating: 1-10 10 Unbelieveable OF HIGHEST QUALITY 12” Upper Skull Forerunner Megantereon inexpectatus SABER-TOOTH CAT with Huge 5” Sabers –all real Plus the rarest Largest Extinct Horse in the World called a Megahorse. The megahorse is 25 inches long like a Clydesdale nowdays. These fossils tell a great story . The sabercat jumped on the horse while it was in quicksand and died immediately as it broke off its outer Jaw. Anyone knows you break your bottom jaw and you die. This cat bit off more than it could chew, and sank in quicksand with the horse. This is my second most prized possession but my favorite . It’s been in my collection for 25 years. No one has anything like this in the world. Two extremely rare animals both 100% original with highest quality possible - both interlocked in a death scene. The only known full skeleton of the Meg was found in this area , and only 1 other Megahorse was ever found in France. The cat was the forerunner to Smilodon in USA . All teeth original on both animals teeth. This cat had Sabers over 5 “ Long and all teeth 100% original to this cat. These are found in USA occasionally but this one was found in France many, many years ago in early 80’s , and purchased here in USA 30 plus years ago from a French dealer from what I’m told. Previous owner had it 20 years also. While the megantereon originated here no one has found a complete skull only teeth and partial jaws The bone is super beige color with darker brown lines throughout and the teeth are so magnificent with all teeth original. Not many are found anywhere. To me this is the greatest Fossil in the World ,and many has told me this used to have on site 15 years ago and had so much response I took it off until now . I don’t want to sell it just share it with the world . Pictures follow . It doesn’t get any better than this. It will be in MY collection forever . Enjoy . Im sure you will think its the best fossil anywhere also. It;s a pure materpiece that is a work of nature that is beyond words . YOu can’t help to visulaize and wonder how this happened where a saber-cat and Huge Horse are locked in this death struggle

Rarest Lion -Beautiful 15” Russian Beringian Lion Skull Highly Original
RAREST LION – Beautiful 15” Russian Beringian Lion Skull Highly Original
(One of a Kind Fossil)
Species : Panthera leo vereshagini(extremely rare) few skulls know Beringian Lion or East Siberian
Species Description: This species evolved from spleaea Panthera but it is extremely rare as no skeletons exist of this except now last summer 2 lions were discovered with hair and intact organs and entire skeleton . They actually have parts found in Alaska and western Canada, and that’s it. Various studies report varying sizes as some report it’s bigger than Spelaea and smaller than American lion , which makes since Cave lions of Europe never made it this far, however most report smaller lions at 1.8 meters long with tails of 37 inches and height of 44 inches with weight of over 550 lbs which still is large . Mine is smaller than atrox by a lot, but while some skull differences of European Cave lion and American lion , the American Lion can be traced to this species Actually DNA is exact on all so all could be one species just found in different parts of the world . These migrated across the land bridge to USA in Alaska and Canada so it’s the only Lion to do so thus divergence into American Lion . In fact in early studies vereshagini is mentioned as American Lion Atrox . Skeletal remains are space with no full skulls found and only 2 baby lions in Russia known . These were found with hair, skin , organs due to all in permafrost . This is the rarest lion anywhere as I have a collection of rare older lions also .

Item Location : Yakutia-Eastern Siberia – Found in Clay profile of the Indigirka River Downstream(South) well into Siberia
Item rating and description: 1-10 *10 plus * WOW This may be the only one out there –Russian Lion Skull 15” Long. If you google it it says no skeletons found just a few skulls but you have the chance to get a genuine skull . The only part not real is the 2 upper canines but I will find some for you as I do get them. This is my first Russian Lion ever as these are the rarest . I’ve had now all extinct species of lion at one time or another now . This is one of rarest items I have and will go at great sums at auction. It’s worth much more than asking due to rareness. Its not real light so indicates at least 30,000 years old . It was found in the river at a location that no others are known to be found at all. It’s so close to American Lion this needs studied or in a collection that will be honored forever as a one-of-a-kind piece . Remember this are is close to Alaska and Anerican Lion came from this lion across the Bering straight .It looks so close to me to the American Lion except size smaller , which it is supposed to be . It is even rarer than the American Lion which I thought was impossible even though all are grouped together by many scientists . NO resto and don’t think it was broken . One-of-a-kind It is missing many teeth with 2 front top teeth casted canines.

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 .

The detail of grooves is not deep but on big ones that is normal . I saw a few 7 inch claws a year ago in Tucson and these sold for $13,000 . The condition is top premium. You know Rex hand claws are only 5.5 inches at most. This claw is spectacular in every way, and is from an old collection bought thru a friend. The articulation point is amazing on this piece . Anyway I’ll let pics do thetalking on this one. These prices have skyrocketed in 1 year since numbersfinding can’t keep up with demand .I could not afford show prices so here is your chance as it’s a great deal due to my deal from a friend .The value of these is actually over 1300 per inch so this is worth 8000. I sold my last one at 5.87 inches forover 7thousand. So here it is the less expensive one this size anywhere on earth I guarantee.

Beautiful Ultra Rare Adult Female Homotherium Saber-Tooth Cat
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 Skeletons have 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 jaw has 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 squat with 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 .

Item description: and rating : 1-10 10 X-Ultra Rare Beautiful Complete Adult Female Homotherium Scimitar Sabercat Skull 13 “ long . I’m selling for a friend so its not here .It is 98% original bones and 100% Org Teeth with 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 worn indicating 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 by me 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 Texas cave and 2 in Florida and a handful in China and Europe . The great thing about this species it is a form of crenatidens 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 sale anywhere 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 Its not mine and not here but Ill get you in touch with that person .

No Where Else on Earth-Almost Totally Original Beautiful American Lion Skeleton(few lions )
Species : Panthera ATROX Lion
Species Description : The American lion evolved from the earlier Panthera leo fossilis, which I have from Europe, and this skull is believed to be the best specimen ever found of an American Lion. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first came to Alaska over Bering Strait with earlier lions as old as 500,000 years old even though only bits and pieces up to 350,000 years have been found. Also DNA shows this to be almost identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species just like Smilodon has 3 species all the same animal . There is Smilodon fatalis, Smilodon californicus , and Smilodon floridius all named by location nothing else as animal is the exact same. Its the same animal just like the main 2 species of prehistoric lion. This is the largest Lion with spealea that ever lived much larger than African Lions- with skulls up to 16-20 inches over 10-15% larger. It roamed in Alaska, California at La Brea, Canada, Mexico and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear which I also have a skull. All extinct lions now are not found except in Russia. In 2010 Alaskan Lions a few people believe were reclassified into spelaea, but almost know its American Lion. This one was found most probable in Yukon upon further examination which to all is American Lion. All Lions are identified by locations with Gir Forest Lions, African Lions, Extinct- Ivory Coast Barbiary Lions(1960), Russian Lions , and European Cave lions, and American Lions . I have had all of these-one of few people on earth to have had all species of Lion . From all fossils we know American Lion was much rarer than Smilodon when they lived and smarter . At La Brea only 5 lion skeletons exist , and hundreds of Smilodon skeletons found by government so no private collections exist except this lion. They have found atrox tracks in Missouri but no fossils found . WE do know Lion fossils first showed up in Africa 1.7 -1.4 million years ago then UK and Germany 680,000 (Spelae), and then they went to Asia much later to Beringa Lions in Russia then over Bering Strait to form American lions from Alaska to Mexico to Florida and S Carolina . So only ones left are ancestors much smaller than original African Lions. Those now probably migrated from Spelea in Europe much later 100,000 years ago to form lions of today. Some info is just not correct on lions as many other animals in google. Some people say American lions arose from one population in Canada Beringa Lions in Pleistocene from Russia, but these lions are the smallest lion ever so how did the largest Lion in America come from smallest when it’s right next door . American Lions were in Alaska were huge as you see this one here. There is no difference between American Lion and Spealea except American Lions was in North America which Alaska is a member USA. All who work with lions knows how valuable and rare this American Lion is.
Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 10,000 Geographic time: 30,000 years ago
Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Border in Alaska next to Yukon and also FLORIDA a different species . This was very close to border either way and many more Gold Mines in Yukon . Northwest Of Skagway -Yukon border. No established towns there just mining camps according to original owner . 2 Alaska Lions are combined and 2 Florida Lions . Keep in mind La Brea specimens are hundreds of bones from different animals all put together as I confirmed that with them . Only 1 in a Wyoming museum is all one lion in the entire world This is next best in the world .
Item rating and description : 1-10 *11 Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion is. It’s 11 ft 9 inches long and if tale wasn’t up it would be over 12 ft long. Its amazing 56 ” high also with 28” at widest . It is original bone from 4 Lion individuals almost all of which was in the Americas. Only the ribs, verts and 7-10 major larger bones were from Florida with most of the Feet being spelaea species. You see no feet have been found in the Americas for American Lion except La Brea from all known knowledge. After speaking to original owner of skull it appears the skull and many inner bones may be from Yukon even though dealer was living close to border in Alaska. So few of these animals exist but names of species are variable even in Alaska as American Lion was the original known species for many years until 2009 for all , since then some papers called it Europe Panthera Spelea species only in Alaska from a few specimens so it’s not set in stone according to another lion expert as with myself. To me even the notion American lion starts at border of Alaska and Yukon is ridiculous . It’s in the Americas its American Lion real simple. No one can say 1 mile separates it when all lions came 1 lion from Europe over Bering Strait anyway. Again to me and most others in the business it’s all American Lion anyway whether Alaska or not. Anyway keep in mind no more than maybe 6 skeletons exist in the world known with all but one from La Brea, and this is one of best and one-of-kind anyway. In Alaska and Yukon no known complete skeletons exist. I was in the Yukon and asked and no one knew of one -skeleton. If they were there Miners are more interested in Gold than getting bones. These North American Bones were collected 25 years ago from a Gold miner .La Brea Tar pits have 5 but not one is from one animal but many put together from many lion bones. Mine all the verts and ribs are one animal, as well as 7-10 inner bones . The 17” skull is from one, and most of inner major bones except maybe 7-10 inner bones also from Florida are all from same lion also. Anyway the feet are from another lion(cave), which is the same DNA. So this is by far one of best American Lions in the world by far. The skull is 98 % original bone and according to many many top people in the field It’s maybe the best anywhere. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as it’s rarer than Smilodon material and I love saber-tooth cats. No one has this, not even the American natural History Museum as they have a half- skull only. I feel like the luckiest person in the world as I’ll enjoy for years. Skulls are unheard of and bones also. My best friend -a cat expert who does books, has all the sabercats, had only 1 skull from Alaska. The American lion skeleton is the most prized fossil in the world . Even the claws are huge modern lion as no American lion exists since it’s organic and this took a long time to get huge claws as well as some foot bones cave lion . The sheaths are all original sheaths from prehistoric lions with some some repaired with other lion species ( few modern)sheaths to make them whole. .It took me 10 years to gather 4 main animals to do this. A few substitutions had to be made due to availability, but almost all prehistoric lion. This one appears to be at least at least 30,000 years old on skull with others less . NO museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . The teeth canines are all original teeth . A few were repaired. I searched the entire country for years to get the right skeleton with many wasted bones that didn’t work from American Lion . The measurements of all the bones matches a 17 “ female skull. The teeth were repaired and just 2 from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present. I don’t want to even find fault with this skull and skeleton because there is so little not original . It should be looked at whole as its so good. To my knowledge no other American Lion Complete Skeleton exists in private hands. The only ones known are 1 from a Wyoming Trapped Pit in a museum and 5 at LaBrea Tar Pits . This is 98% original bone least . Basically only the shoulder blades has any amount of restore at all with a little on the ribs & was done by the nation’s best prepper. He knows everything on skulls of cats also. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this. You would have to be an unhappy person to even try to find something wrong here. I only see beauty and you will too I’m sure. To me it’s the best ever found or best known. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skeleton anywhere. I can’t believe it . Its too amazing I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than cave lions. However what is normal as nothing compares to this anywhere .It will be in my collection for a long time even though I have many people would pay a fortune for this. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. You can’t even put a price on this as it’s priceless, but everything is for sale sometime maybe if a huge amount is offered in later years Ill relent. But that is years away. I tried to put words on this but this is undescribable so look at pics. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. Its mine forever to look at. NO trying to buy it please You cant assign a value . Nothing was spared including huge costs to me to make this all Lion. In fact it costs me 15,000 for claws and Lion sheaths alone until right ones found for this animal -extremely rare due to huge size of claws just like an American lion-some partial lion claws were inside sheaths so those were kept intact also . So this is One-of-a Kind . It’s being stored at a warehouse in Maryland .There are again only a few in the World outside of LaBrea Tarpits and they are also from a variety of American Lions Displayed in jumping attacking position . Not for sale . Plan on keeping many years as if your a fossil lover nothing beats this. This is the only Known American Lion in private hands -only a few skulls have been found outside La Brea (maybe 5 there also)

Very Old (Possibly 100,000 Yr Old-Plus Old Specimen) Large 17” Extinct Barbary Lion
AUCTION-Bound or Less if Bought now below
FULL EARLY SPECIES EXTINCT BARBARY LION –Possible 100,000 Years old (One of a Kind Fossil)
Species : Panthera leo leo early Species-
Area: Barbiary Coast Northern Africa
Species Description: The Barbary lion of North Africa evolved around 100,000 years ago from the African Species of Lion . There was single population of lions across North Africa Middle EAST . Western and Southern Asia ad this species most similarly is more like the Asian Lion . It is the most magnificent of all lions in history as these majestic cats were a massive size bigger than any other lion ,and same size as the American Lion(except not as tall at 3.5 ft) and had the best and biggest mane ever that covered over half the body. It roamed over Northern Africa ranging from Atlas Mountain where the later species only dies out in 1921 and in the west Morocco to Nubia. Or Sudan now .The species I have is yet to be found as it was an earlier one but later species were above .It weighed 550-600 average lbs on males, way bigger in length on today’s lion. The manes were on the belly and all around and darker than lions sub-Sahara, which gave it a regal look. These were the ones who fought in the Rome Coliseum with a great mane and the best specimen ever found of an earlier species. It was believed to be 100,000 years ago when first formed due to simple auditory bulba in the ear stated by American Natural History Museum .I believe this animal is one of the most complete skull if not the most complete of one of earlier lions ever found. These had heads 17 inches long like American Lion and this one is no exception at 17”. It differed as having a grayer shaggier coat, plus the skull and facial was unique. Plus inner ear was different. It says it possessed a higher occiput in back of skull plus more rounded cheek bones. These for thousands of years roamed undisturbed in woodlands and mountains plus desert over a vast territory of now days Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and Sudan today. Their decline started during Roman Empire due to massive use at game. I’m a lion man and I’ve never seen even 1 of this species.
which means there are very few and this is 100% Original
Geographic Period : Pleistocene Epoch
Geographic time: 100,000 -50,000 years ago
Item Location : Northern Africa
Item rating and description: 1-10 *10* WOW Unbelievable Entire Barbary Coast Early Unknown Extinct Lion Huge Skull 17” Long x 9.5” wide. This was thought to be an American Lion, and sent to American Natural History Museum to a paleontologist and due to size and simplier inner ear it was determined to be one of the only known full skull of an Earliest Known Barbary Coast Lions . No other complete skull like this has been found to all knowledge and google checks. Due to dark brown color it may be the oldest species of when it first arrived believed to be found in a cave as the skull is almost perfect. The specimen was bought in Mass. USA in a flea market many years ago so it is so close to an American lion as it wasn’t Ided until sent to museum. It looks so close to me to the American Lion except for slight shape difference as I have one. It is even rarer than the American Lion which I thought was impossible, if it’s a Barbary Coast early species from Pleistocene. This skull is amazing. It was an old animal so old its teeth are worn down in natural life but present. No resto on the skull and complete except for some upper incisors and two lower incisors that I prepped on from a cave lion but even those are real. 4 Bottom incisors are restored. The one side of the upper and lower is missinga back molar but you can tell they fell out in life probably due to fights or dental problems. Remember canines are all there natural just highly worn .The skull is so good it has zygos, condyles, and everything. Also a paleontologist said this was a man-eater or should I say hominid partial apelike creature(possible homo sapiens as they were around at this time ) walking upright due to age of this specimen. Remember Africa had early man way before USA by millions of years. Not only is this upper complete but due to dark brown color it is extremely old. Even American lions aren’t this color unless found in Florida, as Alaska ones never get this dark. No one in the universe has this as it’s the best and most complete of an unknown unnamed species of Barbary Lions if correct .It is worth far more than this as its Pleistocene for sure. No restore, not even touched or doctored or repaired in any way except some incisor teeth added. I’m really speechless on this animal. You can’t even put a price on this as its priceless, but everything is for sale. Simply Awesome and a hominid eater at 99% probablity as once teeth are worn they can’t kill game ,only humans to survive. Anyway it’s once in a lifetime as I have now one of oldest lions of Africa plus one from Europe which is even older. Great Price for a once-in-a lifetime find. An American lion and maybe it is would be at least 80,000 this good. Remember the entire skull except only a few teeth are all 100% natural . At auction I’d have to get more for this specimen. This specimen was never even broken in 100,000 years possibly.I may have it carbon dated.

HIGHLY ORIGINAL BEAUTIFUL HUGE 17” AMERICAN LION SKULL -The GEM of Fossils
Species : Panthera ATROX Lion (American LION)
Species Description : The American lion evolved from the earlier Panthera leo fossilis, which I have from Europe, and this skull is believed to be the best specimen ever found that old. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first came to Alaska over Bering Strait with earlier lions as old as 500,000 years old even though only bits and pieces up to 350,000 years have been found. Also DNA shows this to be identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species in my opinion. This is the largest Lion that ever lived much larger than African Lions with skulls up to 16-18 inches over 15% larger. It is roamed in Alaska, YUKON , California at La Brea and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear
Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 10,000
Geographic time: 50,000-20,000 years ago
Item Location : Gold Mine. Alaska (IT was purchased from a Dealer in Southern Alaska Northwest of Skagway, Alaska close to Yukon
Item rating and description : 1-10 *10* Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion . It comes with a skeleton w a large % of this lion was In the Americas. The skull was purchased in the USA from a dealer friend from Alaska 25 years ago when all Alaskan lions were considered American Lions-most still do of course as this is . Now almost all people still consider it American lion if found in Alaska , but some research papers consider it spelaea species. Spealea is Europe so actually you cant believe all you read . Many items in google are so wrong . They still haven’t provided an American name yet so a top specialist said call it still Alaska lion or American Lion . After talking to Original owner the Alaskan dealer said American Lion , and whether found in Yukon or Alaska it is still American lion . One of my cat expert friends expert says only maybe 10 skulls at most have been found in Canada, Yukon and Alaska, and Florida combined with maybe 3 in private collections(mine and his included so maybe one more somewhere ) as tAlaska is only place for private collections they were found. No more in years have been found . American lions are from Alaska ,Yukon to Mexico to Florida to California. This skull is from 25 years ago so exact location is impossible to know except Alaska-line-Yukon border is known for sure. Its 17” Long the skull as measured around the upper curve from back of incisors to back tip of sagittal crest. The skull is so complete bone is at least 97% original. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as its rarer than Smilodon material, and I love saber-tooth cats. The American lion and the Cave Lion are one in the same even though some people call this spelaea because no other name can be agreed on by the scientific world. Until 2009 there was no doubt of classification of Alaskan lion but recently they are trying to distinquish this from Canada just miles away with items which is impossible to know . It crossed the Bering Strait 340,000 years ago -one lion and did mutate at certain areas. Some ridilous papers say one small number of bones found in Canada indicate Beringa Lions from Russia made it to Canada and went to American Lion . American Lion was largest species ever Beringa Lions of Russia were the smallest ever even smaller than lions today. Spelea we know made it to Alaska but I believe Alaska is America -isn’t it as many call it this which is also ridiculous as these are in North America and American Lions in Alaska are American Lions also as known by anyone who works with these There is no difference than ones in La Brea in charateristics . In fact they were the same size in most cases and most even bigger in Spelea However rarely are they ever found over 30,000 years old . This one appears to be around that from the color No museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . If you have one send pics.The teeth were repaired and some from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present and real . I don’t want to even find fault with this skull as it was done by the nation’s best prepper, my dear friend who is the smartest man in the world who knows everything on skulls of cats. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this and who even has partials of this. You would have to be an unhappy person to even try to find something wrong here. I only see beauty and you will too I’m sure. To be it’s the best ever found. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skull anywhere. Only crack fills and even parts were American Lion. This skull makes so happy as I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better, not even the first best original lion I have the upper that is fantastic also. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. It was highly original from one cat but more American lion skull parts plus some modern lion used so no resin . You can’t even tell of crack fills which makes this so amazing . I venture to say this is the best American lion skull anywhere . It gets better –the skeleton was done by the same person and is virtually complete American lion from a couple animals the same size. It took years to get this assembled and 6 years to get this skull. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than normal .Minimal restore and repair is all that has happened here. It will be in my collection for a long time even though I have many people would pay a fortune for this. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. You can’t even put a price on this as it’s priceless, but everything is for sale sometime maybe if a huge amount is offered in later years Ill relent. But that is years away. I tried to put words on this but this is undescribeable so look at pics. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. Part Of Skeleton Not for sale separately. If sold this must be picked up . No shipping. See pics afterward.
