Splendid Dark-Color Very Good Quality 8” Open-Mouth Dinictis Sabertooth Cat Skull with 1 Original Saber(2.25”) on a Display Stand Species: Dinictis Squalidens 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 EocenePeriod 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: White River Formation Geological period: 35-23 MYA Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota Item rating and description: 1-10 9.3 Highly Original (est 80%) Open Mouth Adult Dinictis 8” that has high quality bone with amazing dark color with one real saber on left side. The other is casted. Cats are the highest demand item in the fossil world as most everyone wants one so here it is at a great price. I’m not known as the Catman for nothing. Here is another one you can buy now. This is so attractive, and while found in same county it was a higher level or later time in Oligocene where cats grew larger. The Dinictis was the first sabercat on Earth. The size is above average on this cat. The sabers are 2.25”. For this time period sabers are average size. Any cat 75% or above on originality now is super because cats much rarer now due to fewer being found, and this time frame almost all mammal fossils that is about the best you can get anymore. This cat is so attractive. People love these darker cats as only 1 in 20 are dark due to color of soil in the area. Areas of restore and repair are the zygomatic arches, sagital crest, little on top of skull, all incisors, and 1 molar on side teeth. Rest are all real teeth. The lower jaw has the backs restored which is normal on almost all of them. One side has only a little at top. I’m the only one who gets cats from this area. The one saber is great, and other looks exactly like the real one. Cats are going now for so much because demand is high, and few are found. This open mouth mounted on an oak base (which can be stained if you wish) is appealing to me. This allows you to get a cat at a low price, as a friend offered it to me at a good price. This doesn’t occur any more. One with 2 sabers like this goes for 13,000 as you see some at site if you wish that.-It’s a hoplo. This is your opportunity for someone with not unlimited resources to get one -and the first sabercat at that. You can buy on time also- $1000 per month on layaway will do. Bone looks so good, so this is your chance. I haven’t had a nice Dinictis in a while-now I have 2 -but not for long, as I have 2 hoplos now with 2 sabers at site under sabercats. My prepper who did this one so well. This cat has everything- beautiful dark color, many original teeth, nice upper. Just feast your eyes on this. This price is a 4 year ago price. It can be shipped safely. here is your chance to get a reasonable priced cat to satisfy your dream . Values have gone up but not this one .

The One-the Only Great 1st GIANT SHORT-FACED BEAR

Species: Arctodus pristinus(earlier than simus)Lesser Shortfaced bear Species description: The largest Bear of all time that stood up to 6 ft Tall at shoulder and 8 ft tall and 9 ft long , and weighed 1800 lbs much larger than grizzlies . 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 a complete carnivore not like bears today as evidenced by high nitrogen bone concentrations so was a killer of its time and lasted for 2.8 million years. More info is listed here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctodus . Largest of all Bears Geological Timeframe : 1.8Million Years-1.5M years agoBlancan/Irvingtonian Geological Period : Early Pleistocene 1.8MYA Item Location: Columbia County, Florida Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 Maybe the only True Pristinus Short-Faced Bear 12.25 inches by 8 “ wide and 7” Tall Skull in the World. This is so unbelieveable as no one has this anywhere in this condition. This time I outdid myself on rareness as this ranks as the hardest animal to find in fossil records even greater than LaBrea Smilodon. Only scant pieces are ever found normally but here you have from sections a Complete Skull with little restoration. Most is on backs of lowers but I challenge you to find more. Even the zygos are short-faced bear. It is a perfect match on all defining characteristics of pristinus also with a written booklet with documents prepared for you showing each shortface bear and the differences. This is rarer than Simus. Try to find one anywhere as you won’t. I don’t know of any except partial one at Florida Museum. It’s so hard to find many paleontoligists can’t hardly tell but by this notebook you can tell easy. This took lots of work and time so you bear lovers better come see this one. All teeth are real shortface bear also so to have all teeth 100% real is amazing. Many crack fills occurred on this specimen. Your looking at history here and maybe the only 95% short-faced bone one anywhere. This grew into Simus-the larger one . I still can’t believe it. Look at this shortfaced bear. It is large. Simus evolved from this totally. You will not find this animal anywhere but at this site forever as it is not currently for sale. I figure the value is somewhere around $50,000 but you may call me and try to convince me you love it. It probably will end up at auction for much more than above quoted. If you love to follow bear history this is so great. This was prepped by one of top bear experts in the world also . This skull is going to auction soon so people can pay more a lot more This is one of kind with a complete info on originality Plus so off to auction unless Call me to talk 706-235-2694 Price $32000 was personal item

MOST COMPLETE RAREST OF RARE ADELPHAILURUS kansensis SABER-TOOTH CAT 11” SKULL

Species: Adelphailurus kansensis Species Description: This is rarest of all sabertooth cats in USA that lived from early Miocene 6-8 MYA and were the size of a modern cougar or puma . Its body also had the same shape as a puma also, and had long compressed upper canine-sabers that hunted small birds and mammals in ambush . This cat is a false saber-tooth cat and had retained a second upper premolar, which is unusual for a cat . It was the second largest of the late Miocene cats and was an Eurasian immigrant. It was a metailurus cat, which besides this species and one other was only found in Asia and a few in Europe. It is not one of the top 6 saber-cats found and has only been found with partials with top of skull never found in USA according to reading all documents . It was identified by Hilbert in 1934 with only a few skull pieces and a few partial bones ever found so this skull is the most complete skull known to exist. A partial humerus, radius, ulna first phalanx and was named after the first skull jaw section found in Kansas. Most of bones found in Arizona in this small area, and one found in Bone Valley, Florida also. Geological formation: Milk Creek Formation Geological period: 8-6 MYA Miocene Early Hempghilian Tribe-Metailuri Genus: metailurus Item Location: Congress Junction, Arizona Item rating and description: (1-10) 10 AMAZING 11” Long x 7” wide agape Adelpharilurus kansensis saber-tooth cat SKULL-The Most complete ever found . This is an amazing piece as this is the most in one skull of its species ever found as only a few skull fragments exist . While it does have a large amount of restore much of lowers are real bone with teeth plus one upper maxilla with teeth are original to one animal. IN other words with 3 jaws 3 of 4 molar teeth pairings are original and the back of cat is original plus one original saber plus part of side of upper. The rest is filled in so % is still about 40% original-estimate. This cat is so amazing and so well prepped it’s a treat to look at. Again while not highly original it’s the best ever found so this is for people who want a one of a kind this is it. For your perfectionists which I know some- do not even try to buy this. I want someone who appreciates this large cat eventually but really do not intend to sell ever Again this is the most complete one of its species ever found so no perfect ones exist and probably never will . This is the most complete ever skull so one of a kind

Beautiful Aesthetically Pleasing 7.5” Chocolate Dinictis First Saber-Tooth w Amazing Teeth Species: Chocolate Dinictis Felina Saber- Cat Skull 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 .

These are 2 sabers complete, and all teeth but 2 small incisors which makes it one of best ever on teeth , which is by far the most important part of cat . The only problem is the top skull mostly was eaten away by erosion as it was above ground . The prepper has to save it by using a cast on top. Some parts of nose and back is real on upper as well as half of both zygos. The lower is amazing on teeth and bone, as all of this was underground. It’s a way for someone who doesn’t mind on upper lots of resto, but the rest is amazing with teeth you could just cry. A chocolate dinictis is almost unheard of as only a few miles radius in Nebraska Oligocene these can be found. I can honestly say that probably a very small percentage of cats are this color, and I’ve only had two others in 20 years. This is an average size dinictis. It has beautiful dark brown original sabers est about 2” inches along. . The lower jaws are much better than normal with a small amount in backs of lowers. The teeth make this just wonderful. You never get hardly any incisors which is 12 teeth and all but 2 are original. All on the top are perfect . All and all a very good cat It can be shipped without fear of breakage .This is for again someone who doesn’t care on top originality but wants a low price and original teeth . IT comes with a metal display on wood base shown in last 2 pictures . It is so super it literally can hold you attention for a long time. Nothing compares to this cat in teeth and overall beauty. IM selling at my cost so this cat would cost 10,000-11,000 if upper was better on bone.

Amazing Rare Pleasing Earliest Species Hoplophoneus Saber Cat Skull Highly Original - Oreodontis?

ULTRA RARE EARLIEST Gorgeous Hoplophoneus Saber Cat Skull High Quality (Est 85%) Original Possible OREODONTIS- Species:; Beautiful Hoplophoneus(Oreodontis) or early early Primaevus Species description: Long –legged Nimravid sabertooth cat (one of larger with razor –sharp sabers and the second earliest saber-tooth cat that roamed North America beginning in the Geological strata: LOWER BRULE (Upper Nodular Zone ) Early Oligocene or Late Eocene Timeframe : 35-32 MYA (Orellan) Scenic Member Item location : Pennington County Item rating and description:1-10 9.5 Great Rare Early Hoplophoneus skull-one of earliest ones 7.5 Inches long. It appears to me to be like my oreodontis skull which was earliest but it could be the first primaevus also . Besides being the second of earliest sabercats of all time(dinictis earliest) It appears to be a rare species . . The first species were smaller skulls 6-7.5” adults. The latter Oligocene were larger 23 Million years ago . This was found in very early soils so it could be one of rarest ever found. In rarity this age plus the high originality make this a keeper. This is stated by one of best preppers in the world . All teeth are original underneath, even though molars and premolars have been painted on outside due to repair which makes standard monitoring useless. The sabers it is believed are original to a high degree even they also have some paint due to faded enamel and repair . It has penetrant sealant which affects monitoring it thru standard methods as well as paint prep. It is so appealing as any areas of work can’t be seen . The teeth underneath the paint are all real teeth to make it clear .It was excellently prepped for asthetic purposes. Both sabers are repaired and some paint on small part for enamel but all unlying teeth are present. All the incisors are real 100% which is unheard of so 10 teeth normally casted these are 100% original with no repair that is so rare, and the skull uppers and lowers are amazingly original. The only part is a small area in back on upper sagittal crest , 1/2 of zygos. Even backs of lowers are pretty good with one very good originality. Its a simply beautiful Cat and should be looked at that way . While not perfect, actual originality if you include all bone and teeth is extremely high(Probably 90% or more ), but this is not a cat to be blacklighted due to paint as it won’t show near that high . I do know this cat well so the person who buys it is extremely lucky to get such a low price . If your looking for an astectically pleasing cat with high originality from all known this is it . This is worth in my opinion after 20 years of working with cats about 13,000 Most sabercats are 70-80% original with ones not this rare so this is a treat. Some people say this was combined into privaeveus species anyway so either one is correct. This is an old cat so don’t go by size- The rarity of earlier cats is just amazing on this cat. It comes on nice display also showing teeth so well . I’m tempted to own this forever but will sell because have a bunch right now . The lighter color is typical of this time frame but its so rare so nothing is typical . If you read some articles some scientists have combined this into primaveus anyway but many say it’s a different species . This cat is worth a fortune due to quality and rareness so please don’t wait or its lost. This is called the mini Smilodon because it looks just like it except size. It is not close to perfect due to some painting on teeth and skull but originality is still high as underneath the prep is all bone . This could even be of higher originality but decided to price it low for quick sale for all you cat enthusiasts. Price:$11,999 Reduced Final Price: $10,999 This cat was one of few I did not see original before final prep but did see before light painting done. My prepper says its very highly original , and what I can see agree totally. I lowered price due to this for quick sale . This could be worth $3000 more if all teeth totally original which it appears and also due to rare species so no discounts on this one and all sales final . Shipping : $230 overnite

The size is small but the earlier ones are in high demand since they are number 1. The sabers are 1 7/8 (close to 2) . For this time period sabers are average size. Any cat 75 or above on originality now is super because cats much rarer now due to few found, and this time frame almost all mammals that is about the best you can get. This cat is so attractive. The left saber is real and the right casted. Areas of restore and repair are the zygomatic arches, sagittal crest , all incisors , 1 molar in back on lower it appears, and on the lower just a small section at top of one side at back. The lower jaw is one of best I’ve seen back of lower jaws . I’m the only one who gets cats from this area . This was found in a lower zone so much earlier than other one I have that’s larger. The one saber is great, and other looks exactly like the other . Cats are going now for so much because demand is high, and few are found. In this area many cats had only 1 .5 inch sabers so this is nice . In fact many hoplophoneus cats only have this size, and they should have bigger ones. This open mouth mounted on a oak base (which can be stained if you wish) is appealing to me. This allows you to get a cat at a low price, as a friend offered it to me at a good price. This doesn’t occur any more. One with 2 sabers like this goes for 13,000 as you see some at site if you wish that. This is your opportunity for someone with not unlimited resources to get one -and the first sabercat at that. You can buy on time also- $1000 per month on layaway will do. Bone looks so good , so this is your chance . I haven’t had a nice Dinictis in a while, as I have 2 hoplos now with 2 sabers at site under sabercats . My prepper who did this one so well. This cat has everything- beautiful lighter color, many original teeth , great lower skull and nice upper. Just feast your eyes on this . This price is a 4 year ago price so snap this up . It can be shipped safely and you can pay monthly. Its not for a perfectionist but it is a nice cat . The display really helps make this stand out .
