The teeth are great on premolars but incisors and sabers are casts This is such a rare species I’ve only had one in 20 years before this. For a true collector this is a must skull .

Beautiful Gorgeous Exceptional 7.5” Dinictis Saber-tooth Cat Skull with 1 Complete Saber& Tip of othe

Species: 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. 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: 40-35 MYA 

Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota

 Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 This skull is so beautiful , and highly original . Its an early Dincitis which you can tell due to size of 7.5 inches and also location that I know well. The sabers are about 2” long which is normal above many this era. One saber is all there but the other has ½ inch of the tip real with the rest restored. I’d estimate 80-85% original, which for an Oligocene cat amazing . The skull is mighty fine also with approx. 85% original with resto on some of saggital crest plus backs of lowers. The teeth on upper are all real including the incisors and canine incisors . Again the teeth are highly original and hardly any repair on upper except part of one saber . On bottom the smaller incisors and 1 molar & 1 premolar are restored . This cat is great. Restored minimal areas including saggital crest, few spots on top , ½ of one zygo , and one back of lower . For those who do not know that is so minimal . It was expertly prepped and rest of skull is totally original. I’ve had only had a few better than this one and expect this to sell fast. I sell 6-8 per year last 10 years. While some cats only occasionally show up, this is still quite good . Few people have these to sell as I do . You just won’t find them so those still expecting perfection will wait years and years and never get one. This cat has most everything- beautiful color, most original teeth, great sabers, excellent originality of skull and it’s open mouth mounted. What is the most amazing on this cat it was no distortions. The shape is perfect. This occurs only 1 out of 20 cats so this is great . On all sides it works to display on nice display mount also. It is really something. I looked at this so long as I could not find much resto. They just don’t come like this cat, so for you people who want a lot here it is. I had to have it and you will feel the same after looking at the pics .This worth so much more so no discounts. This is from a low formation which makes it one of first saber cats ever. 90% ones go for over 12,000 now . Price $9999 firm Shipping 2 packages overnite $235

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

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.

Monster Almost Non-existent Highly Original SABERCAT Pogonodon Species(11.75”)-Great Find

Species: Pogonodon cismontamus(Platycopis) 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 30.8MYA -7.2MYA . They stood at least 4 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 .It lived at least 30 million years ago .This one weighed hundreds of lbs .This specimen is so big the sabers are much bigger than a dincitis , 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 on private land Item Rating & Details :1-10 10 This is one of most greatest finds in America on Sabercat world . I would say with teeth its at least 85% Original. Its just as large as a Smilodon except the sabers at a fraction of the price, even though its rarer. It’s a POGONODON HIGHLY ORIGINAL SABER-TOOTH CAT I have sold many cats but only had 1 in past that was smaller at 10.5 inches but this is huge at almost 12 “. What makes this such a great find is originality of the bone skull is an amazing 95% and these just aren’t found . Both sabers have over half original on each with one the tip back and other base up. Restored are incisors and part of saber with some work to make sabers astetically pleasing . This is a Highly original Extremely Rare saber -cat. It has been IDed by a knowledgeable authority. Skull, sabers and almost all teeth are exceptional which is the most important item, and the prep work was fantastic as it is exceptionally done . The zygos are even real worth just a little restored . The lowers are amazing even with most of back original and not same cat. 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 hate to sell but will if price is right WHAT A Great cat. THIS IS ONE OF TOP POGO SPECIMENS ANYWHERE ON EARTH and ONE OF LARGEST. A LIFETIME KEEPER and one of a few that exist including museums . BONE QUALITY unmatched anywhere . These are believed to be developed from the dinictis genus which is the smallest of the American cats but just look at this one My only 1 I ever had except my private collection piece which I still have, was another I sold . This is one of the largest USA species sabercats , with the others having only a few found and not available to public . Smilodons sell at auction over $300,000 and only a few ever offered . Homotheriums in USA only in Texas museum, and xenosmilus only 2 in existence privately held . This is just too magnificent to sell Now I only have 1 in my private collection
