This is a rare chance to get a wonder of nature in 100% original condition with maybe one or two breaks re-glued . The magnificent color of dark brown is amazing ..The horn is worth a lot even as a juvenile and is 100%. natural. Completely unrestored, with few breaks and repaired are so rare on top of that . It appears almost perfect on all regards. The horn is stabilized ia . I've only seen 3 horns my whole life ,and I bought them all .

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 .

Rare Extinct Related to Short-Face Bear Tremarctos floridanus(Ancestor to Spectacled Bear) 9.5” Foot (At Auction )

Species: tremarctos floridanus - Part of same grouping in Tremarctinae part of Short-face Bear Species description: One of the largest bears of all time that stood up to 5 ft tall at the shoulder and weighed 1200lbs less than the normal Short-face bear that existed as contemporaries from the Pliocene to Pleistocene Epochs 4.9 Million years to 11,000 years ago. In fact, at one time the largest mammalian terrestrial carnivore known as Tremarctine bears or running bears endemic to North America and Europe. This was not a complete carnivore but ate a wide variety of items but did kill animals for a living also like simus short-face bear. It started 1.5 million years before Simus so it is believed also to develop into the true short-face but evolved differently to remain in another form.

 Timeframe: 4.9 Million Years to 11,000 years ago Geological Period: Middle Pliocene -Late Pleistocene

 Item Location: Marion Co., Fl. 100,000 to 200,000 years old 

Item rating and description: (1-10) *9.3* All Original Tremarctos Bear the forerunner to Giant Short Face Bear Entire Left Paw 9.5” long by 7” Wide with 25 Complete Bones. 100% Original Bone with all complete non-broken bones. This is so wonderful to have an entire foot with 5 complete claws with sheaths as no one has this anywhere, I promise!! There have been only a few uncovered and does have some bones from different bears of the same species but they match so well. Bear claws are so rare that are extinct. Few of these are present anywhere no matter where it’s found. I’ve heard of scant material being found but nothing like this is for sale now at this site to my knowledge. These were large bears who started 1.5 Million years before Short-face and are in the same family with some evolving into Short-face and some going to be the now Spectacled Bear so these lasted longer than Short-face bears did. This is a must for a true bear collector. Here you have from mostly the same individual totally original set of 25 bones in the left paw with super claws!!! Claws if found have no sheath but these are perfect!!! Each claw of a Short Face bear is worth over $1000. Not even wear on these is evident. I’m selling at half the price of my short-face bear but it is almost as rare AND people don’t know this bear, showing its rarity!!!!

Beautiful Light Color Highly Original  Hoplophoneus  Saber- Cat Skull 8” w 2 Great Sabers 

 

Species : Hoplophoneus dakotenis

 

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.

One tip has small resto .  Both are real which today is unheard. Its high quality  and haven’t had a 2 saber Oligocene cat in years . Its not perfect some resto mainly one back of lower , which is normally 2  restored . It’s a very very good cat 5” wide with all premolars and molars original from same cat . Some incisors  -larger ones also real with some restored on upper and lower . It had some repairs due to some crushing but came out so great . This is the only one at Tucson show this year and normally I get 4-5 cats . None were found last year at all of This cat appears so great . Every cat I get from this area from one person sells so fast due to quality of cat. It’s amazing  You just cant get 2 sabers real anymore from the same animal as this one so it is special .You won’t see a better quality cat anymore. The lower jaw is original to this cat also which is rare. They are so hard to get anymore.  The teeth are so appealing and love the bone also.  Incisors are almost never real and many of these are on top and bottom. Sabers are so beautifully prepped and brown colored. On upper only a little on zygos are restored with a few spot fills and condyles   On lower only one side at top of back except spot fills is restored which is amazing . This cat is worth a fortune.  The metal display makes this so presentable with metal uprights  and is rare for any cat -which makes it stable and so pleasing to the eye . Anyway . Here it is. Words don’t do this justice . I sell 6-10 sabercats per year normally but may not get anymore , and this will go fast at this price . All have sold.   This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. An animal this good should go for over what IM charging as 2 sabers is impossible on American cats .I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. This is only one I have .  I have more pics if you need it.   Cats have gone up a lot so here it is. Every year they appreciate more also so great investment. This species is rare also  Look at those sabers long and wide .  These have risen alot for us to purchase and no one has them for sale anymore so demand is high and supply is almost nonexistent  Not this time as Ive sold many with 1 saber at this price . SO better quality at better price .

GIGANTIC(LargestI Ever Saw) 37” ADULT WOOLY RHINOCEROS Entire Skull HiIghly Original with ALL Teeth

GIGANTIC(Largest I Ever Saw) 37” ADULT  WOOLY RHINOCEROS ENTIRE SKULL Highly Original  WITH  ALL Real  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 -10,000 yrs ago

 

Item location:    SIBERIA , RUSSIA  THis is a VERY Dark SKull (Sunlight does not show this ) 

 

Rating and item description : 1-10 9.5  VERY MONSTEROUS HUGE 37”  WOOLY RHINOCERAS Whole SKULL  w /All Natural  Teeth with Dark Color Beautiful Brown Color. IT is very High (17”) and also 14 Inches Wide.  The Upper is 100% Natural with some teeth from same animal glued back in. The lower had all teeth in place naturally with only a slant in lowers that isn’t easily seen. The colors match well on lowers even though I believe it’s from another rhino which is almost universal on these but color makes it a great piece. I’ve seen many hundreds with horrible color differences but not this one. The only part with a little restored on lowers with bone is putting jaws together correctly and one side on bottom. The fit at articulation point is fantastic and unheard of . The back of lowers is 99% natural with a small bone placed on highest point of backs. The articulation point is 100% natural and that’s unheard of which just doesn’t occur.   This lower matches perfect and color in most areas. IT does have a slant that doesn't show unless upper off but it still lines up with rest of skull at articulation and teeth  Now no one will be getting any more as only first of year Russia has laws now of items leaving country as of this year and due to Putin I would not buy anything ever from Russia in future . This was not obtained from Russia but a local USA person. This was bought in USA as it was here for many years. This is from an old collection for decades in a warehouse, and never prepped . 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 controlled by governments.  While this has no large horns, I do have some juvenile horns you can get very inexpensive . If it was a large horn one the price would be over $50,000 so it’s a way to get one very cheap. I saw one with a horn in Tucson this year for $80,000. 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. This is a male rhino for sure and largest one I ever saw Even one on my collection for years is 36 inches

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 .

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

Amazing Dark Colored Beautiful 13 ” Cave Hyena Skull from Ultra Rare Location

RARE EXTINCT   Museum Quality Cave Hyena 13” OLD  HYENA 

Species:   Cave Hyena   crocuta crocuta spelaea

 

Species description: The cave hyena was a top predator in Asia and Europe.  These hyenas were  pack carnivores who hunted most every herbivore it wanted  , IT was one of larger ones  with only the dinocrocuta  and  adrocrocuta larger .It was about 8 ft long  IT 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 Northeastern China .This hyena was a highly specialized animal  that was so ruthless it could kill almost anything with its progressive and regressive features being more developed than the modern African species. IT preyed on large animals like wooly rhinoceros, red deer, giant deer and wild horses in Europe and Asia   .

It began over 2 million years ago as a species and was extinct about 30,000 years ago at end of Neanderthals . It would steal Neanderthals food also as documented, 30,0000 years ago it went extinct  due to competition with other predators and climate change, and loss of grasslands which they hunted. .

 

Geological strata: Late Miocene thru Pleistocene  Strata 

 

 Geological period: 2.5 million -30,000 Years ago 

 

Item location:  Russia 

 

Item rating and description: 1-10     9.9 This 13” Cave hyena  specimen is very rare due to location and its also very very old . It wasn’t tested but believed due to color of dark reddish brown to be possibly a million years old. Most specimens of cave hyeans are light colored all thru Europe but they in whole terms are so rare -this is amazing. These were vicious killers , and the beautiful color and high quality with what I can see just work done on palate make it special . Look how dark the teeth are also . It is at least 30,000 years old . This was found 20 years ago in a rare location close to deer bones so it was able to catch many types of prey including deer. This fossil  animal is top notch with only a few spots of resto over the skull, mainly on palate underneath .  It’s like an early huge giant dog , and this specimen displays so well. IT was a high quality prep job even though not a lot was done. While nothing is perfect this is so rare an animal and so complete no one can complain.  Its my first one complete, and first from this area. Germany is normal for these but so rare now it’s a treasure  and not expensive .

100% Original Pleistocene Fossil Walrus IVORY 23” Long

100% Original Pleistocene Fossil  WALRUS IVORY TUSK 23” Long

Species: Trichechus rosmarus names 1766 

Species description:  Early Walrus in Pleistocene   times that looked similar to Walruses today, except for size including tusk size. The Walrus is a large flippered marine mammal that lived at that time in many temperate zones in the Artic.  It’s noted for its prominent tusks, whiskers, and bulkiness.  It was  a contemporary with the woolly mammoth but also before in Miocene 8-10 million years ago . It could weigh many lbs but was half the size of modern walruses in Miocene b iut in Pleistocene same size as this tusk. The males and female have tusks, with males usually bigger.  You find so little info on this walrus as usually only a few tusks are found in Pleistocene yearly . 

Geological strata:  Pleistocene 20-30,000 years old  

Period: Pleistocene 

Item location: Lawrence Island , Alaska 

Item rating and description: (1-10) *10* This is an Amazing Early Male  Walrus 23” long . The size and also the ridges indicate a male walrus . The colors show at least Pleistocene which means its a fossil and totally legal and sold . Any  tusks after 1950 has laws concerning import and obtaining but this is a fossil Polished Tusks of this rare animal highly desired as the ivory shows so well .  It is extremely rare with no restore or repai . I bought it because it’s 100% original except for being polished completely.  This is for a collector who wants a large tusk that has different dark  colors throughout which shows age . The darker the older so we anticipate this to be around 30,000 It was found years ago by the person who sold it to me so it reduces overhead so offering at super price. I never saw one from here .  The modern ones have adapted only to cold conditions in the poles now, but not in Miocene at warmer times. These walruses   This is an adult specimen.  Prices have skyrocketed in recent years on these due to the fact that full skulls are not really known so get the most important part – the tusk.  The price is so low it will go quickly because of the ivory of an early walrus. This is true ivory at a  low price.  This is a wholesale price due to original owner finding this piece years ago so save

HIGHLY ORIGINAL BEAUTIFUL HUGE 17” AMERICAN LION SKULL -The GEM of Fossils

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion (American LION) Species Description : The American lion evolved from the earlier Panthera leo fossilis, which I have from Europe, and this skull is believed to be the best specimen ever found that old. It was believed to be 250,000 years ago when it first came to Alaska over Bering Strait with earlier lions as old as 500,000 years old even though only bits and pieces up to 350,000 years have been found. Also DNA shows this to be identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species in my opinion. This is the largest Lion that ever lived much larger than African Lions with skulls up to 16-18 inches over 15% larger. It is roamed in Alaska, YUKON , California at La Brea and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 10,000 Geographic time: 50,000-20,000 years ago Item Location : Gold Mine. Alaska (IT was purchased from a Dealer in Southern Alaska Northwest of Skagway, Alaska close to Yukon Item rating and description : 1-10 *10* Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion . It comes with a skeleton w a large % of this lion was In the Americas. The skull was purchased in the USA from a dealer friend from Alaska 25 years ago when all Alaskan lions were considered American Lions-most still do of course as this is . Now almost all people still consider it American lion if found in Alaska , but some research papers consider it spelaea species. Spealea is Europe so actually you cant believe all you read . Many items in google are so wrong . They still haven’t provided an American name yet so a top specialist said call it still Alaska lion or American Lion . After talking to Original owner the Alaskan dealer said American Lion , and whether found in Yukon or Alaska it is still American lion . One of my cat expert friends expert says only maybe 10 skulls at most have been found in Canada, Yukon and Alaska, and Florida combined with maybe 3 in private collections(mine and his included so maybe one more somewhere ) as tAlaska is only place for private collections they were found. No more in years have been found . American lions are from Alaska ,Yukon to Mexico to Florida to California. This skull is from 25 years ago so exact location is impossible to know except Alaska-line-Yukon border is known for sure. Its 17” Long the skull as measured around the upper curve from back of incisors to back tip of sagittal crest. The skull is so complete bone is at least 97% original. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as its rarer than Smilodon material, and I love saber-tooth cats. The American lion and the Cave Lion are one in the same even though some people call this spelaea because no other name can be agreed on by the scientific world. Until 2009 there was no doubt of classification of Alaskan lion but recently they are trying to distinquish this from Canada just miles away with items which is impossible to know . It crossed the Bering Strait 340,000 years ago -one lion and did mutate at certain areas. Some ridilous papers say one small number of bones found in Canada indicate Beringa Lions from Russia made it to Canada and went to American Lion . American Lion was largest species ever Beringa Lions of Russia were the smallest ever even smaller than lions today. Spelea we know made it to Alaska but I believe Alaska is America -isn’t it as many call it this which is also ridiculous as these are in North America and American Lions in Alaska are American Lions also as known by anyone who works with these There is no difference than ones in La Brea in charateristics . In fact they were the same size in most cases and most even bigger in Spelea However rarely are they ever found over 30,000 years old . This one appears to be around that from the color No museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . If you have one send pics.The teeth were repaired and some from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present and real . I don’t want to even find fault with this skull as it was done by the nation’s best prepper, my dear friend who is the smartest man in the world who knows everything on skulls of cats. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with this and who even has partials of this. You would have to be an unhappy person to even try to find something wrong here. I only see beauty and you will too I’m sure. To be it’s the best ever found. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skull anywhere. Only crack fills and even parts were American Lion. This skull makes so happy as I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better, not even the first best original lion I have the upper that is fantastic also. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. It was highly original from one cat but more American lion skull parts plus some modern lion used so no resin . You can’t even tell of crack fills which makes this so amazing . I venture to say this is the best American lion skull anywhere . It gets better –the skeleton was done by the same person and is virtually complete American lion from a couple animals the same size. It took years to get this assembled and 6 years to get this skull. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than normal .Minimal restore and repair is all that has happened here. It will be in my collection for a long time even though I have many people would pay a fortune for this. Money is not important on an animal like this to be viewed over and over. You can’t even put a price on this as it’s priceless, but everything is for sale sometime maybe if a huge amount is offered in later years Ill relent. But that is years away. I tried to put words on this but this is undescribeable so look at pics. Simply Awesome. The pics are amazing. Part Of Skeleton Not for sale separately. If sold this must be picked up . No shipping. See pics afterward. Whole skeleton $$429,333 ​

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.

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.

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
