Almost NOn existent 2 Neanderthal Large Femurs (One 12”) from Area cave known for Neanderthal Finds with COA from Owner in 1978-Found 1975
Almost Non-existent 2 Neanderthal Large Femurs( one 12”) From Known Area for Only Neanderthals w COA from Owner of Original finder over 50 years ago
Found Almost 50 Years ago & at least 30,000 years old -Ultra Rare Amazing Early Man -
Species : Homo Neanderthalensis
Description- Extinct Species of humans who lived in Eurasia until about 30,000 years ago . They originated generally thought about 500,000 years ago. Society was quite sophisticated with fire making abilities , building cave hearths, and making of stone tools. They could make clothes and ate a wide variety of food mainly hoofed mammals , plants, birds and some aquatic animals. They could make use of medicinal plants and were apex predators but competed with cave bears, cave lions and hyenas , and sabercats .
Time frame Dated Pleistocene est. 50,000-35,000 years ago
Area Found : Cave in region of Austurias
Item rating and description 10 10 : These are so rare everyone can only dream of having a piece of our history. One femur has one end that is worn 12 inches long and other has neither end . Normally these are real ,real expensive from my European contacts because only a few dozen exist in the world in private hands but here they are so reasonable These are 100% Original and not only come with COA about finders before any caves became public . These were probably found in 1975 and purchased in 1978 when it was purchased from finders in Europe. These were adult. A map where found also comes with each piece and they were found deep inside the cave. Few people ever have anything even if you want one ,and due to amount of pieces known , IM offering these very cheap. Even small pieces way smaller than this would sell for this price. This cave only Neanderthal have been found, and it’s famous. It’s was the best area for Neanderthal bones and these were found 1n 1975. All were found by paleontologists and collectors. Last chance to ever see one let alone purchase it. Neanderthal sections to my knowledge don’t exist in USA, and Europe probably a few museums but that is it. But something this rare period are amazing pieces . I had a femur with one end many years ago for 30 years and it sold for $6000 Not these. Always I have a soft spot for our lineage so able to obtain after years of trying. To my knowledge no one has this in private hands in USA and few in Europe anymore. No carbon dating has been done but is at least 35,000 years old and suspect older. In fact in 1994 13 individuals were found, and they were older and cannibalized in this same cave. IM not sure these were cannibalized or not. . This cave is extensive and people allowed in until late 1990s COA from owner about finder and location in cave provided So you get 2 for price of one .

AMAZING 53,000 Plus Years Old POLAR FOX in Its Entirety 100%- Skin, Hair , Organs, TEETH, CLAWS all Intact thru recent Freeze- Drying Technique
TIME in a CAPSULE- 53,000 PLUS YEARS OLD POLAR FOX in IT’S ENTIRETY Inc SKIN ,HAIR , TEETH, CLAWS & Bones Besides ALL Organs
Species: Vulpes lagopus(Polar Fox)
Description : Small Fox that’s a mammal with males reaching 22 inches-exactly what this specimen is . Its native to Northern Hemisphere in artic tundra biome.It is well adapted to living in cold environments and known for its thick, warm fur also used for camouflage. It has a large fluffy tail . Most don’t live past it’s first year hearty ones can live up to 11 years as this one did as it’s an adult . They preys on small creatures as lemmings, voles, seal pups, fish, waterfowl and more. It eats berries, insects , and carrion also. Natural predators include eagles, wolves, polar bears, wolverines , and grizzly bears . This guy made it not only 11 years but thru 53,070 years intact.
Time Frame : Dated 53,070 by Carbon dated C14 in Japan in 2019 by body tissue 2 different ways : One with 8,13 C Correction which showed 53,070(+-1060) and without 8,13 correction & C14 age without rounding off 53,073(+-1058) Pleistocene .
Preparator: From Austria by Stephen Grazer thru vacuum freeze drying for 53 days at -54 degrees with certificate in 2022. Its 100% Natural.
Area Found : At base of Belaya Gore(White Mountains) in the Indigirka River Basin Siberia within Yakutia outside a Small Tribal Community found by a poor villager providing to the selling person ,who was there with a work team directly in 2019 . This hunter barely ekes out a living as all community residents deep in Siberia.
Description Rating 10 To me this is the ultimate treasure -a fox that lived 53,070 years ago totally intact with hair, Skin ,bones and all organs intact. After a career with only bones to actually have a creature intact that long ago is so rewarding words really don’t accurately describe an animal frozen in time under the perma-frost for 53,070 years, and due to climate change the permafrost melting to see so few animals as they existed tens of thousands of years ago . I have read 2 stores only in all my years of others and only know of 2 others- a baby cave lion , and a wooly rhino baby -both of which I have pictures . Both were on national TV-this hasn’t been . To my knowledge this is the only polar fox ever found frozen. I do have a picture when they started to unfreeze in preparation with partial ice showing. It was dirty black. Now we have a treasure that I still can’t believe. IM the owner of an beautiful creature that will last the ages the same way it died -all the hair , organs, bones, and skin . It has a small bald spot where skin died and no hair resulted, but skin is present . Its mounted beautifully under glass . The dry-freeze process takes almost 2 months of temperatures of -54 Celsius as it says . I just can’t find the words beyond this except behold this miracle . This little guy will live forever .Keep in mind this fox is has to be covered quickly so aerobic bacteria can’t strip it , and since it was very deep no anaerobic either . It was carbon dated with hair in 2019, and kept frozen for years until they found the right person they wanted to prep or could prep. This is new business and few exist in the world .The permafrost is melting due to global warming .
To my knowledge this is the only adult mammal ever found completely original , a few babies .
Price Value is limitless.. IT gives me great joy . It comes with complete write up certificate with all steps for this masterpiece from Preparer. Also hair samples were done early and sent to Japan for testing and was done a second time by the preparer. Both certificates come with it plus a display case with light and instructions to keep humidity 65 or under . It was kept in same shape as it maintains its shape as stated above due to no water in body thru process of freeze drying so its really light as no water is in the skeleton at all ,which is normally 98% of body as us . Also I send pics of animal frozen just before preparation it is black . If found it takes years asometimes to get it done ,and lots of cost. Adults aren’t done because the cost would be 100,000 just to freeze dry . If any interested contact me but IM not sure Id sell unless the right person . You will never see this againy . Its about 14 inches and its an adult . I saw a few feet only(skin, Hair) of a few wooly rhinos that were 100,000 .This is a whole mammal and while it exists today its extremely rare . Only Norway, Asia , Alaska , Upper Canada and Tibet a few exist.
Call 706-235-2694 to talk only. This person has to really appreciate an adult mammal that is in this condition 17 times the age of Moses Egyptians. Thats why they hardly exist . A great friend told me to put it out there . I really dont want to sell this but someday we all sell everything . Not for sale . Personal collection

ONE-OF-A KIND Astonishing REPENOMAMUS Skeleton -Largest Mammal in Dinosaur Ages Which ATE DINOSAURS 125 MYA-3 ft
Astonishing REPENOMAMUS SKELETON-High originality -Famous Killer of Baby Dinosaurs -Largest Mammal during the Age of Dinosaurs
Species: Repenmamus giganteus
Description : Badger-sized mammal -only one known to eat dinosaurs . Recently on TV as having one with stomach contents of 2 baby dinosaurs . This was the largest mammal known throughout all dinosaur period as dinosaurs kept them at bay the entire time, and almost all others were size of mice . It was larger than several known adult dinosaurs also .It was a carnivore -one of few mammals that were that also ate other vertebrates like reptiles and birds . Only 2 known and this the only one in private hands . A non-placental mammal which means it laid eggs that hatched like modern marsupials . It’s a member of the triconodonts an early mammal even though they started about 230 MYA. IT came from reptiles as we all did . Its teeth are very sharp and between a dog and a cat . That's why I put in cats and dogs. More a cat and may be one of forerunners of Sabertooths even though Miacis -like a weasel is given that honor
Time: Early Cretaceous 125-123 MYA
Area : Euroasia There is video about this mammal Repenomamus the Mammal that Ate Dinosaurs
Description : Rating 10 of 10 . To me this is the find of the entire dinosaur period. Rarer than any dinosaur it is one of my most exciting specimens. Most people only think of dinosaurs but to get a whole specimen with only ribs and part of shoulder blades restored is so amazing . The head has all real teeth to this animal and is 6” Long with the whole animal 36 “ long exactly 3 feet . I do have ribs but they are in pieces so unable to mount but could put some on eventually on top of others. Expertly mounted and just a sight to behold . Mammals are my thing now and wanted one for quite awhile. It was found in prep shop in matrix with contents unknown for decades and recently prepped. One of a kind - IM keeping this . If I did sell it would take a lot and will take names for the distant future with health permits I cant say enough about this. IT leaves me speechless almost ,which you know is hard to do on my website. This is so great when you consider almost all mammals were size of today's mouse all just trying to stay alive and not get crushed by dinosaurs . This one could handle small adult dinos and babies . Its teeth are so sharp thats why I believe its a forerunner to sabercats -they say Miacis is the forerunner which is a weasel type animal . Miacis was later so Miacis probably came from this mammal . The teeth are so sharp.
Call 706-235-2694 or 706-802-7894
thanks You may give me your name if interested some day or Ill just enjoy it while IM healthy. I don't know the true value since no one has this. To me it has tremendous value . Amount I paid is well worth it.

Only -One -Known Huge 32” Around the Curve ADULT JAVAN RHINOCEROS Extinct Subspecies Upper SKULL 99% Original w All Teeth Present & from This Rhino
Only one Known Huge 32” Around the Curve ADULT Javan RHINOCEROS Extinct Subspecies Upper Skull 99% Original WITH ALL Real Amazing TEETH 1-1.5MYA
Species: Rhinoceros sondaicus annamiticus Javan Rhinoceros subspecies extinct
Species description: An adult wooly rhinoceros was 10 ft in length -this one I have was a male huge one but this species is the smallest of all rhinos. It does belong to the Indian rhinoceros. It averages 5 ft in height. Its horn is only 9.8 inches at most and only adult males have these horns. Females lack all horns which has saved them until now . Only 50 exist in the world but this. It eats vegetation . 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: 1.5MYA -1MYA Javan rhino species still exists but not this one
Item location: Sangiran Archaeological Site by Sangiran River close to Kalijambe -in Regency: SRAGEN
In Central Java about 15 miles N of Surakarta in Solo River Valley.
Rating and item description : 1-10 10 MONSTEROUS HUGE 32”Long 15” Wide Upper Javan Rhino Skull from Rare digging site w /All Natural Teeth with Beautiful Brown Color. This area produces such a rare amount of species including Java man, , Hippos, and in this case a Rhino Upper Skull . I cant say enough about this and this area. This skull due to color and weight which weighs over 100 lbs due to total mineralization indicates a million years old or more just like my Hippo . This I never heard of any being found and hope someday to get a lower / It’s just an amazing find . It was found decades ago and in USA for also decades in a private collection . The teeth are so amazing on this creature as it has total detail and all are here with hardly any or no wear . To me it ranks as one of most miraculous finds I have been fortunate enough to own. This skull is so heavy it takes for an upper only 2 plus people as it weighs over 125 lbs estimated. It comes on a oak display unmatched with rigid stands to support this monstraousity. I just can’t say enough how valuable this is. This area has been dated with almost all items 1-1.5MYA items. While this was not carbon dated ,the physical weight and color, and amount of mineralization tells you it’s between this number. My wooly rhino palls in weight to this skull. THis is 1 MIllion years older . The Javan rhino has 2 prongs in front skull , while wooly has a one continous frontal large lobe . Also the back pof a wooly is 12 inches higher than the back of the Javan . Two distinct specimens almost a million years apart . Evolution at its best . Darwin sure knew what he was talking about.
The Upper is 99% Natural with all teeth from same animal and only a small amount of repair It ionly broke one side of zygos . This was bought in USA as it was here for many years. NO horns have ever been found of this species from all research and it looks different that the Siberian wooly rhinos . This is a male rhino for sure. This species was the smallest of rhino species that exist today and a million years ago. Only a few of today’s species exist in western part of Java . I have to look at this for awhile before selling but if I did below is minimum amount . I just had to share this with fossil lovers .
Price : May sell but years later . NO discount . May discuss 706-235-2694 just details of skull.

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) So its understood no complete American lion skeletons have ever been sold They do not exist . The last totally Cave lion skeleton and only know of maybe 6 from same person sold for 280,000 . THis is american lion and the best skull ever known of an American LIon ever . The skull alone is worth as American Lion (Alaska) skull which a few around are from alaska and one I have -an upper from Florida not in museums is no more than 1 from Iowa, one from Memphis area and counting mine 6 from Alaska as its researched so the price with mounting is only . A company in Russia wanted this for a museum b ut I declined of course . I would like an American or European museum or private collector to purchase and pick it up and do transport as I cant do that on this beauty .
