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

They stood at least 2 ft tall with cheetah-like habitsand 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: 40-35MYA Item location: Shannon County, S Dakota Item rating and description: 1-10 9 Highly Original (80%) Open Mouth Adult Dinictis 6 1/2” that was a very early ones so you could be looking at one of first sabercats ever in existence as Dinictis was the first on earth. 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.

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 .

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.

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 .

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 .
