IT became extinct 10,000 years ago with wooly mammoth . IT was larger than Gray Wolf averaging 5 ft in length and weighing 150-175 lbs . Legs of Dire Wolf was shorter and sturdier than those of gray wolf and the brain case was smaller to than the gray wolf .These were mainly found in California and Florida.

This is one-of-a-kind and now own this masterpiece. I haven’t seen a La Brea Dire Wolf in 10 years and never saw one this good. This is so wonderful I can’t find the words to express my amazement at the quality of this specimen, so it goes into my personal collection. It is highly original and would estimate 90% with all teeth real teeth, and a few from other Dire Wolf La Brea parts. The skull is amazing. It has only restore at thin section at middle of the skull , and part of back above the condyle area., little on back of lower jaws , and that’s it . The condyles are real. The teeth are amazing and 90% from this animal including incisors except 3 upper. Words just can’t describe this piece. It was so difficult to prep because normal air compression work would have caused caused the color to change as it was so fragile and the most difficult prep job a top prepper ever did . It does have stain .It took one year to complete . The assemblage of bones is original with toe bones, verts and others full and partial in the matrix which was a part of the unprepped animal . It is just spectacular . Even the zygos are original on this animal. It has repair but teeth were full, and little need repair on these. They are wonderful . Imagine even real incisors in the front. This was of course from an old collection and was laying around for probably over 50 years before the government took over ownership of laBrea . I’m so pleased to own this and regard it as in a league of its own. LaBrea just isn’t available anymore , and if anyone does have one they don’t sell it . Notice the patented dark brown color. This is the original color in an area of high concentration of oil as some are lighter. Well I can’t say more on this as words are not adequate to do this justice so maybe the pictures will.

Almost Non-Existent Prehistoric Oligocene First True Peccary Perchoerus

AUCTION ITEM Species: Perchoerus Platyops Species description: Hardly no record of this animal exists except it looks like a large peccary and belongs to Artactyla. This is so rare hardly anything has been written about it but it was named by Cope of the famous Cope- Marsh duo. It is smaller than later Platygonius compresses but looks a lot like it. It was a browsing animal and very few bones have been found, At All!! Read about this animal here and you will know more than 99% of the population. You can look this up and get so little it is amazing!!!! Geological strata: White River Formation Geological Epoch: Upper Oligocene Geological Timeframe: 28-23 Million Years ago Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota Item rating and description: (1-10) *9.5* RAREST AND OLDEST of ALL PECCARIES – ULTRA RARE PERCHOERUS. Beautiful Large 10.5” SKULL. Wow this is so rare little is known about it. My friend from whom I purchased has hunted 30 years and this is only the third one he ever found. I’ve only seen 2 other ones in 20 years ever. My prepper said this is the most complete one he ever saw even better than the other one I sold. It’s over 90% original and these, if found, are usually very partial. While this is compressed, it’s complete and does not take away the beauty of this piece on a stand. Also, the entire back including the sagittal crest with condyles is original and one of the zygos. The teeth are very fine with all original except 3 of 4 of tusks, 4 of 6 uppers, and one premolar. The value of this is extreme and they sell immediately for those people who know how rare these are. Restore is only on one zygo of the peccary plus some spots to fill holes on the top and bottom. You just don’t find these never in this condition!!!! The upper skull is extraordinarily great for any skull let alone this rare animal. The prep was so well done that it is difficult to ascertain exact original of restore. But look at it as a whole and you will be so pleased. I was so happy to get this find, and only a true collector will appreciate this one as actual value is priceless!! You will never find a better one for the money. The pictures will show you how original this is. I will gladly keep this as I appreciate it so much. Anyway, here it is at the same price I sold the last one which was two inches smaller so this is a big one and highly original!!!! Its almost at cost

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

Premium Hyaenodon Horridus11.5” Skull Agape Open Mouth Skull

Special Premium Hyaenodon horridus 11.5” Skull Agape Open Mouth Skull Species: Hyaenodon horridus Species description: This was the largest species of Hyaenodon in North America with massive high saggital crest in back of head, long narrow snout, short neck and long body and tail. It was the top single carnivore although a number of Terrible Pigs could drive one off. This was the largest carnivore for over 20 Million years called a Creodont and it hunted alone not in packs like its smaller 3 related species . These creodonts shared a specialized dentition commonly found in meat eating mammals with shearing structures called carnassal-teeth. This one species was the size of a bear and had 1000 lbs of pressure per bite , and was more dangerous and a lot bigger than any saber-tooth cat of its time a loner).Male specimens show grinding marks on their teeth which means tooth-grinding was used as intimidation with animals. The last creodont went extinct in America about 23 MYA but lasted to the Miocene in Asia. This is the rarest fossil of the 4 species of Creodont by far.

Perfect 100% Original Entire Right Side 10”  Beringian Lion Lower Jaw w All Teeth & Canine

 Species : Panthera leo vereshagini(extremely rare) few skulls know Beringian Lion or East Siberian Species Description: This species evolved from spleaea Panthera but it is extremely rare as no skeletons exist of this except now last summer 2 lions were discovered with hair and intact organs and entire skeleton . They actually have parts found in Alaska and western Canada, and that’s it. Various studies report varying sizes as some report it’s bigger than Spelaea and smaller than American lion, however most report smaller lions at 1.8 meters long with tails of 37 inches and height of 44 inches with weight of over 550 lbs which still is large . Mine is smaller than atrox by a lot, but while some skull differences of European Cave lion and American lion , the American Lion can be traced to this species. Actually DNA on Cave Lions is exact on all so all could be one species just found in different parts of the world . These migrated across the land bridge to USA in Alaska and Canada so it’s the only Lion to do so thus divergence into American Lion . In fact in early studies vereshagini is mentioned as American Lion Atrox . Skeletal remains are space with no full skulls found and only 2 baby lions in Russia known . These were found with hair, skin , organs due to all in permafrost . This is the rarest lion anywhere as I have a collection of rare older lions also .

All teeth are original and nothing done to teeth including canine. It might appear to untrained eye the canine is not complete but the natural wear shows this was a lion that was old and damaged its canine in hitting bones while eating . It tells a story . The canine is all there and original , just a vicious lion eating sloppily its prey .The age has to be very very old for this animal Few of these are available anymore as American Lion jaws you can’t get anymore even though I have 2 of them . If you google it -it says no skeletons found just a few skulls but you have the chance to get a genuine lower jaw that is perfect. No resto no crack fills no nothing just a jaw for you skull. I have 2 skulls both worth over 20,000 . It has premolars molars and and even 1 incisors. The color indicates at least 30,000 years old . It was found in the river at a location that no others are known to be found at all. It’s so close to American Lion this needs studied or in a collection that will be honored forever as a one-of-a-kind piece . Remember this is close to Alaska and American Lion came from this lion across the Bering Straight . It is just a as big and looks identical to my American Lion Jaws . It is even rarer than the American Lion which I thought was impossible even though all are grouped together by many scientists . It never was broken. This is my only 1 now.

X Nice Large Colorful Hyaenodon horridus 13.5” Skull 9” Agape Open Mouth Skull

AUCTION ITEM Species: Hyaenodon horridus Species description: This was the largest species of Hyaenodon in North America with massive high saggital crest in back of head, long narrow snout, short neck and long body and tail. It was the top single carnivore although a number of Terrible Pigs could drive one off. This was the largest carnivore for over 20 Million years called a Creodont and it hunted alone not in packs like its smaller 3 related species . These creodonts shared a specialized dentition commonly found in meat eating mammals with shearing structures called carnassal-teeth. This one species was the size of a bear and had 1000 lbs of pressure per bite , and was more dangerous and a lot bigger than any saber-tooth cat of its time a loner).Male specimens show grinding marks on their teeth which means tooth-grinding was used as intimidation with animals. The last creodont went extinct in America about 23 MYA but lasted to the Miocene in Asia . This is the rarest fossil of the 4 species of Creodont by far. Geological strata: White River Formation Geological period: Oligocene Period 35- Early Miocene23 MYA Item location: Shannon County ,Badlands of Western S. Dakota Item description and rating1-10 *9* Pretty Colorful Highly Original Rare Largest 30 MYA COMPLETE Hyaenodon horridus Skull with Teeth Morphology. This skull is fine with great teeth with all original except a few does have repairs . The canines plus all the teeth are original. It was found whole with exception of zygos so no full breaks, and it is simply an amazing quality piece in all regards including bone quality, beautiful color , and an adult . It’s such great bone quality it was a specimen that was very healthy so it met a quick death somehow possibly by a number of terrible pigs which were bigger, however, no bite marks on the head are evident. These got as large as 15” and are extremely desirable as few are found. Some restoration on skull occurred but expertly prepped so it looks great. Back of skull, zygos and few others like back of lowers are rstored. Quality is still x fine. Since I can’t put in words how lovely this animal is even with retore it’s so nice. IM sending pictures of this specimen and some lucky guy will get a price at great cost .It’s for an investment as this piece will grow lots in value . The unusual color alone makes this a huge buy. I lowered priced wanted on this to close to cost. The great ones go for 7500 and I have one of those now if you want almost perfection . It is open mouth on a great display and it is so amazing.
