Amazing Remarkable 10 Year Project -Complete American Lion 17 ” Long -History

Many More pics for your viewing pleasure The History of Lions originates with African Lions at least 2 million years ago & European Cave Lion(Panthera Leo fossilis in France ) in Eastern Europe then Panthera Spelae with dates ranging from 3.4 Million -500,000 years ago for the beginning with end only 10,000 years ago . All lions are decendants of this first lion including American Lion. All Lions are named for their location due to mutations . Due to fossils being so rare all literature published has very few fossils to base anything on . It is believed to come across the Bering Strait 250,000 years ago to Alaska and down through Alaska along the coast and thru western Canada namely Yukon thru British Columbia all the way to LA , California ,South to Mexico , and then Florida with pieces in S Carolina. Since it came to Alaska almost all people believe its called American lion including me . A few papers after 2009 put Alaskan items separate but those papers can’t see the forest thru the trees. American lion is from Alaska  then to Canada,  and California , then Mexico(Northern end only) and  Florida and the most desired fossil in the world . Florida and LA lions  are same . (Cave lions and African lions were living at same time but different species than today with Ivory Coast Barbiary Lions(different Species of African Lion) only extinct for the last few hundred years , and African lions which still exists but different from earlier African Lions . Russian lions also came from Panthera European Cave lion which are much smaller . and a different species IDed years ago. I have had every extinct lion(not including subspecies) in the universe which no one on the planet can say . As I said researched have partial elements and small samples and conclusions are based on little . Almost all of these lions have very similar features and only differ by size and small DNA differences . In fact American Lion and European lions have  identical DNA . This one was tested 20 years ago by Larry Martin in Kansas at University so it showed similarities with European Lion so he did research way before others on this cat . While those are similar American lion La Brea is almost identical to Alaskan Lions  with only slight mutations on its way there  some. Still due to location in Alaska all people should call it American Lion. Mine was purchased when all people considered it American Lion and 90% still do of course as I do. .DNA with other lions also is very similar including Lions from LA. . Everywhere on earth lions are called by where they ended up including American lions. Canada lions right next door miles away were considered American Lions by all as they said they mutated. Now it really hasn’t changed any other persons dealing in Lions as Alaskan lions are American Lions. Atrox is same size of many earlier lions -huge . Only a few writers said the glacier advance was a dividing line on Atrox & Alaskan lions with is not correct so ridiculous as glaciers came as far south as Tennessee in east and California is West . In fact the last million years we have had 9 advances of glaciers every 100,000 years (80,000 ice age glaciers and 20,000 years warm) . In 10,000 more years we will be in another ice age. I’ve had American lion and Florida items and bones and skulls are no different than Alaska lions in any way. I have probably been the receiver of more lion material than anyone on earth as all lions are similar . You don’t call African Lions even though some came from Europe- European Lions . Modern African lions are much smaller but still basically the same . The Route these lions took was down thru Alaska into Washington the route to California and Florida . I’ve had 5 European lions and sold them all and partial American lion material(This is only 1 whole l known in world-even museums outside La Brea) and they all look alike. That shows my qualifications on lions. People who deal in limited fossil material are basing any judgments on minimal sources as Lion is so scarce in Alaska and anywhere else . A few individual fossils does not make a compelling argument compared to seeing these items and mutations always occur to some degree due to environment. Since they exist in Americas they are American Lions . I was in Yukon and they had a pelt from an American Lion at a museum and it was labeled American lion, not spelae. La Brea lions from California are the same as Alaskan Lions as I’ve talked to them. I can get you smilodon material but rarely lion so lion is much rarer . This lion size is truly a King of Beasts . I’ve studied lions for years and all people involved in lions call Alaskan Lions, American Lions . I have lots of knowledge on earth on lions because I’ve studied them and sabercats for years .My friend is a writer of sabercat books, and I have actually had a number of American Lions partial jaws but that’s all with a few bones. Anyway almost all of mine is from Alaska and Florida except the feet from Europe and the only one in private hands known . No skulls in Florida exist in private collections except mine(I have an upper) as well as La Brae Tar Pits -all owned by government .This lion is one -of -a -kind as someone can’t get another anywhere . . I‘ve seen so many times google does not have correct info on dinosaurs and mammals so hope this puts to rest any researchers of google .I also know the top lion expert in the world in Africa and Middle East, and he agrees wholeheartedly. All lions have minor differences even in same countries like Africa but all are closely related -Again all from same lion from Europe -spelea(fossils in France) . Even European spealea now is impossible to find as some were on market a last 10 years but now government controlled areas means no more . These European lions go over $350,000 , and American Lions are not sold(N One exists in private hands except this one , but worth 1/2 million and will rise a lot next 20 years so ones in private hands will never be for sale due to investment . This cat no one has anywhere on earth. Someday maybe you get the chance to buy but not now . Its worth at least 500,000 as one- of- a -kind. The only place on earth they find American Lion was Alaska but not nothing for at least 10 years so how can you price one-of-a kind. No one has an American Lion for sale anywhere at any time La Brae Tar pits even said their lions are from many different animals -all of them 5 displayed. When I told them I had only 4 lions in one they were amazed. This maybe the only one ever for sale . Yes the feet are cave lion because no American lion feet exists and its the same DNA . One amazing find . Price: $489,333 alan stout

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 are from Alaska and close to Yukon Border .So few of these animals exist. 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 a lion expert as with myself know these as American LIons . 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 experts and no one knew of even 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 . Almost all 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 97% 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 undescribeable 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 .  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) Price: $489,333

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.

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.

FLORIDA 100% Original Beautiful AMERICAN LION UPPER SKULL (WOW)-No Where Else on Earth than Here

FLORIDA HIGHLY ORIGINAL BEAUTIFUL AMERICAN LION UPPER SKULL-ONLY 1 IN USA 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 an American Lion. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first cameto 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, California at La rea and Florida with traces in S Carolina, Mississippi. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear which I also have a skull. Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 15,000 Geographic time: 60,000-30,000 years ago Item Location : Found in a Crevasse 35 years ago on public lands in Columbia County, Florida Item rating and description : 1-10- 10 Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this Florida American Lion Upper is . Its 16” Long. The upper skull is so complete with all teeth but one canine that was placed from another one in that area. It was found 35 years ago. The originality is just amazing at 100% . Only 1 Florida whole lion skull exists from Florida(no skeletons) and this is the next most complete and only 1 from Florida in private hands .I have done nothing and no one else has touched it either so this upper is 100 % natural with addition of 1 canine only . IT is so majestic of a skull. This was owned by a finder for 15 years then sold to another collector for 20 years, so I’m the third owner of this magnificent king of beasts. As you know I have an Alaskan American Lion Skull with skeleton also and only 6-7 skulls exist and no skeletons exist in the world so I have unbelievable lions that can’t be found anywhere. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that than any fossil- its rarer than Smilodon material by far. The American lion and the Cave Lion are actually one in the same just where found the dividing line for ones in Alaska. This is a true American Lion skull due to location as only 1 in Florida except 1 in a museum. The classification for Alaskan lions as soon as it crossed into Alaska 300,000 years ago from the Bering Strait should be for everyone an American Lion .Since geographical DNA was same for both some don’t classify it as American Lion even though all other lions are by location. I do personally have as much knowledge of these cats of anyone as I’ve had all extinct lions at one time through the years.This one appears to be at least 15,000 years old like the other one found close to same area. If someone does have one please notify me please one send pics. The teeth were all original with only left canine missing original since placed in from another lion in same area, and no repairs of any kind. The other canine was split but whole. I don’t want to even find fault with this great skull as few exist ever in USA. Again this is only 1 known in Florida in private hands . About 80 have been found at LaBrea Tar Pits and that’s it – except for one in Florida in a museum only and I have the other . So I have the only 1 in a private collection in the world . Some partial material shows up across Southeast as far a Mississippi River in east . The originality is spectacular as it is so close to complete I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat as I’m a true Lion lover. It doesn’t get any better. I’M so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. The dark color is typical of older lions in any area. You will not see one like this anywhere . This is the only one from Florida that exists in private hands and only 1 of 2 that exists from Florida. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. It’s so hard to put a price on a priceless item. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. I’M a collector and lions are my favorite fossil. This is one of my all time greatest finds helped by a dear friend. I would only sell if I received $47,445 No Mailing -only a pickup Too valuable  Kern hold

The tibia and fibula are from the same REX , while the metatarsal is hardly ever found as this is the thin one down the middle and is so narrow it never survives except this one . It takes 2 persons to lift this one so it was difficult to work with as most bones this size has multiple natural breaks. All 3 you can’t say n enough about them . I will not sell these as they are the cornerstone of my collection, and can never replace them even though IM working on a TREX Tibia now I will sell and it’s a great one so ask about it.

IT was a herbivore , and little known it is the longest living dinosaur over Jurassic and Cretaceous . It was found in late Cretaceous Indian soil. It is a weird looking dinosaur compared to others .It is considered the longest living dinosaur ever due to India having this creature up to 65 MYA so it is at least 100 Million Years Old since it first appeared. Allosaurus was the largest Jurassic Therrapod Meat Eating dinosaur ever reaching up to 35 ft long –as long as a bus . Its large skull with moveable joints in the skull allowed it to bite huge bites to devour its prey which included the largest saropds over 65 ft long .It did hunt in groups It had an S shaped bulldog neckand each powerfularm having 3 clawed fingers with one large claw. It weighed 2 tons.

The plate shows the connection area ,and a design so typical of a very rare plate. It is complete and from a juvenile . I do not sell stegosaurus material because it is not found for private collections hardly ever and is much more valuable than REX, Allosaurus , or any other dinosaur so I’m gladly keep this if not appreciated .

It I have a tail spike, and a rare dorsal plate from its grandfather miosi , and consider this the most valuable of all . I don’t sell those pieces .

Amazing Spectacular Highly Original Largest Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Species Ever

Species: Hoplophoneus occidentalis Species description: The long –legged Nimravid saber-tooth cat (one of larger one)with razor –sharp sabers and the second earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period 35 MYA -23 MYA . These animals had a lot of physical characteristics similar and exact to Smilodon including famous saber-guards and similar sabers while smaller . They stood at over 2 ft tall the size of a large bobcat, and were more of a group predator with a close knit families as evidenced by some hoplos found together in death while overall very rare species hunting an abundant food supply of grazing ungulates including camels and oreodonts. Using their highly developed saber-teeth they would likely sever the blood supply in the neck of their prey in the initial attack. Geological strata: Scenic Member of the Brule Formation Geological Epoch: Early Orellan 34 MYA Item location : Scenic , Shannon County, SD Item rating and description: 14 Just a Gorgeous Rarest of Rare Large High Originality Plus ORIGINAL Hoplophoneus occidentalis Saber-Cat Skull 8 7/8” Long with 3 3/8 inch sabers . This cat was described by my top prepper as the best one I ever had, as he has done over 10 this year alone for me . These just aren’t for sale but here is one . One of the rarest cat sanywhere in the world , a giant hoplo .This one is a true collector’s DREAM item , and IM a collector so it was mine and now available for sale . The sabers are so huge I have never seen any hoplo over 3 inches before , however this is a true prize . The first hoplo was oreodontis 35 million years ago, and were small at that time only 5-7 inches long at most in the early years , as they did get bigger with time up to 9” long . At 34 million years came a new huge holpo called occidentalis which appeared and evolved from primaevus ,and only lasted for 4 million years on the plains of South Dakota. Some primaevus got this large in latter years, but not at 34 million years I contend as occidentalis species were very rare at this timeframe and smaller . Most people know this occidentalis species at least 10” long ,but I believe these were the later ones at the 32-30 million years old timeframe . This one was very early one and I believe as does 2 of my contemporaries as one of first occidentalis species for sure , however I must say one of my best friends and top authorities believes it to be a hoplo giant primaevus species , whose opinion I respect immensely . However ,below are the reasons . I believe this is a true occidentalis early species . First my friend believes all occis must be 10” long but since I know for a fact this animal is at least 34 million years old (due to how low it was found in the strata which was the first of the occidentalis species due to the timeframe. I believe they were smaller at this time , and the ones he has are later of the species and not as low in the strata . A pogonodon that was found higher by 75 ft higher was small one when it first came 32.5 million years ago and got much bigger , and we found this occi specimen much lower so we know it was at least 34 Million years ago . First of a species always have characteristics of both when the lines evolve from each other which is the case here. Hoplo primaevuses were smaller at this time frame than this specimen from observances by the finder –as many primaevus only 5-7 inches were found by him here , and he knew this was special . This skull is 8.75 “ long, and the largest ever found in this area by far . So all others found at this strata were very small, but this skull is far larger in a very early timeframe for hoplos. . 4 million years made occis only 1-2inches longer as the biggest hoplo that ever existed , and since this is a female they were smaller than males . Many characteristics make me believe this is an occidentalis . In fact, all characteristics to me even size fit occidentalis for this timeframe . First the postglenoid foramen are actually smaller per skull size in occidentalis than primaevus as per Donald Prothero’s Book The Terrestrial Eocene –Oligocene Transition in North America , and this fits this specimen . Next the paraoccipital process at the back of head is reduced in size for occidentalis per skull size ,and it appears for this specimen in comparison of primaevus . How you tell these animals also is look at the saber guard. This specimen has the guards much wider and longer than a normal hoplo due to saber size . Also at the top of saber its almost an inch -15/16” wide , and wide throughout , and reg hoplos are never more than 5/8 inches wide as they are quite –narrow . Many times reg hoplos are under a half inch wide on sabers . Also the Upper Premolar 2 is absent in this species , and reg hoplos its not absent as all I have seen has an upper P 2 including all the ones I have now . This occi does not have P 2 on either side of the upper and the alveolus does not look covered over by bone , as my expert friend suggests may have happened in this case . I have never had one that P2 is absent even though in reg hoplos it can happens as extremely knowledgeable friend suggests .Basically the belief by some is if it’s not 10” long, it’s not an occi. However an update after further review other characteristics that I and my friend believe it to be an occi .The huge curvature of the canine and rounded margins make it an occi I’m using all the other parameters which show occi for me also . The strata of the find suggests differently to me, as it is definitely one of the very early holpos, and it is huge .Since it is one of first for sure of all hoplos(lower strata doesnt contain holpos only dinictises) , I believe it would be smaller than the normal later 10” (1” off) occi specimens. Anyway it could be a tweener in the 2 species , but I believe strongly this is at minimum at least the start to the occi species and now am 99% certain its an occi, even though only a few exist anywhere . Hill City has a definite occidentalis specimen only 5/8 larger than this specimen also . The finder and a top dealer agree with me, but regardless of my claim this is the best hoplo specimen you will ever see anywhere . It is one to be proud of forever . Color, detail, and completeness is above reproach. The white color with lines is usual for these animals , which is how they looked close to death . The upper skull is more than 90% original with super teeth with only a small area of back of skull and lower back jaws restored.. The teeth are almost 100% with just a few incisors restored. This may be one of earliest occidentalis skulls ever found , or at minimum one with mostly occi characteristics except length . I don’t think length should be the overriding characteristic in any assessment. Only a dozen occidentalis skulls have ever been found anyway over all 4 million years so this is so valuable which always stumps even the most knowledgeable because it is hard to put in put in either category .It is a female that is very rare .It resembles Smilodon , and is ultra desired . This is the smallest occi possibly ever found but still a huge hoplo , no matter how you look at it . No one can take the beauty of this specimen away no matter what it is, which makes it extremely special for me. This is unheard of and a great rare specimen
