Splendid High Quality Rarest of Oligocene Sabercats 9.5” PogonodonSkull w 6 Verts w Atlas

Splendid High Quality Rarest of USA Oligocene Sabercats 9.5” Pogonodon Skull w Verts& Atlas

 Species: Pogonodon cismontamus(Platycopis) Saber- Cat Skull 82-85% 

Species description: One of earliest Nimravidae endemic to North America and Eurasia .A Nimravid saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Oligocene Period 32MYA -24MYA . 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 . This specimen is so big the sabers are much bigger than a Dincitis(even though sabers casts), 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 have another for personal collection from a friend , and soon hope to get another . 

 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 & Originality MALE CAVE BEAR from Drachenhohle in Austria

 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

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.

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 .

Gigantic 32” Adult WOOLY RHINOCEROS Entire Skull Highly Original(Upper 100% Original)w All TEETH


Species:  Coelodontia antiquitatis (Wooly Rhinoceros)

Species description: An adult wooly rhinoceros was 14 ft in length  and 12 ft high and 2 horns on the skull are made of keratin with the anterior horn larger than 3 ft long horn between its eyes. It had thick long fur, small ears , short ,thick legs and a stocky body. It used its horns to sweep away snow from vegetation so it could eat in the winter and defensive purposes. 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 


Geological strata: Pleistocene  Fauna


Geological period: 1.8MYA -9,000 yrs ago


Item location:    SIBERA , RUSSIA 


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.


Geological strata: Pleistocene epoch


 Geological period:  2 million -10,000  years old closer to first due to color 


Item location: Europe    


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

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 and some inner bones from Europe and the only one in private hands known . No skulls in Florida exist in private collections except mine(I have an upper also) 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 and some inner bones  are cave lion because no American lion parts exists and its the same DNA . One amazing find

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

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. Whole skeleton $$489,333 ​
