Gorgeous Great Top Quality 8.5” Top Quality Hoplophoneus Saber Cat

Gorgeous Great Top Quality 8.50”x 5.25” Hoplophoneus Saber Cat ( known as the Mini Smilodon)

Species: Hoplophoneus primaveus

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.

Geological strata: White River Formation

Geological Timeframe: 30-23 MYA

Item location : Shannon County, SD

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.5 Gorgeous High Original 90% Original Hoplophoneus Saber-Cat Skull 8.50 ”long with long 2.75” Sabers. One saber is a cast, one original. The bone quality is simply fantastic . Any cat over 75% now is remarkable. Cats are so rare this year. The upper is 95% , and lower is fine also with all teeth real except smaller incisors casted which is normal . This is one of the best cats I’ve had even though one saber restored. It was found by a top hunter last year. It is so well prepped it is impossible to tell any repaired or restored areas which are few. The color, shape , teeth, bone quality are impeccable . The molars and premolars are real and great .MY prepper said so many great things about this cat. It’s not perfect but really gorgeous. It’s one of the most beautiful cat you will ever find. Due to rareness prices have soared for wholesale. . This cat is the most highly desired vertebrate fossil in the world due to its resemblance to Smilodon and old age. The upper skull was just outstanding , and stood out as magnificient pure shape and completeness. The lowers have a little restore in back as most do. This is one I won’t mind keeping, but it can be yours. An animal this good should go for a lot more than I’m asking now, as I’ve seen many sell for thru the years. I will not discount a pure beauty in nature. The size is huge as are sabers. You rarely find them this big but here it is. I have more pics if you need it. Prices to get these have risen as few are found anymore. No cats were visible this year at show as I had to call all my contacts and make arrangements before so you can’t get these anymore. You will never see one this good anywhere anytime including at this site. I just can’t ever say enough about this cat. If not appreciated I will glad keep it for my personal collection.. Entire skull is so great you’ll be sorry if you go for a cheaper 70% skull . If you can afford this it’s a beauty,it’s for anyone who loves sabercats whether top collector or first timer . This cat would go for $14,000 now if it had the other real saber. People have to adjust their expectations now on cats 2 sabers just doesn’t occur in American cats anymore and one at 70%-75% is fine but this is way better They have increased so much due to rareness . Just try to find one or why waste time when its here

Extremely Rare Gorgeous Entire Leg-Foot of CAVE LION 100% Natural w Sheaths, Claws Wounds

EXTREMELY RARE Entire 46”Leg-Foot CAVE LION 100% Natural w Sheaths, Claws , Knee & Wounds

This entire Leg-Foot was carbon dated at 47,000 years

Species : Panthera Leo Spelaeus (Eurasian Cave Lion)

Species Description : This is the extinct Cave Lion that was larger than African Lions with skulls up to 15-17 inches long (About 10% larger) . Only American Lion is larger but many people believe they are one in the same . It roamed Russia and all over Europe . It was massive with a large sturdy body with a shoulder height greater than 5 ft high and a body length of more than 8-9 feet with tail .

Geographic Period : Pleistocene Epoch

Geographic time: 47,000 Years ago

Item Area: Carpathian Mountains, Romania

Item rating and description : 1-10 10 BEAUTIFUL ENTIRE Leg & Foot 46” MOUNT with all the accessories including Sheaths , Claws, Knees and 2 puncture wounds from a hyena . This leg-foot has a huge number of bones throughout. EUROPEAN CAVE LION is so rare now with all caves closed to private diggers –all government loaned. The seller said this is one- of- a- kind item now. It is so complete and all real bone. The puncture wounds shows it was bitten in life thru a struggle or on death after animal went down. They are huge puncture wounds and no doubt a hyena chewed on him or her. This is very valuable as it shows this animal was extremely large at 46” long . You won’t see another one for sale anywhere. Most authorities agree American Lion and European Lion were actually the same species even though they were given different names due to location DNA testing shows the same animal . This bone here- quality is supreme with little wear and multiple colored bone .Just a beauty all around . This one is rarer than Smilodon material, and it separates the true collectors from the pretenders. This is my first one since my whole lion was put together from 4 animals which is really small as most lion skeletons are so rare to have told by the LaBrae Tar Pits paleontologists . These won’t be found any more so don’t wait or you lose. IT is truly a prize. I never had a leg only a whole foot that sold for $6000. This has the leg and knee also plus it has all 4 sheaths with claws Each sheath with claw sells for $700 each in this great condition as sheaths are amazingly complete except one . This is 3000 alone just sheaths at tip. Just don’t ask for a discount as this is so low now for this much of an lion that died out 10,000 years ago and this is much older as it was carbon dated at 47,000 years old . A whole skull now go for 50,000 and up so this is dirt cheap .One hasn’t been found in a long time. No country in Europe any more has new material only owners in Europe who will never sell. I can get 2 more of these also- arms. It’s the last of the best fossil animals in Europe has to offer so don’t delay. Im happy to keep this forever just like my whole skeleton if no one appreciates this to buy it also. The metal mount is easy to do and makes it look so great . This leg foot was carbon dated at 47,000 and Pleistocene within 1 million years this method is very accurate so its an old lion way before 10,000 years ago when they died out . You can tell from the darker color also

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 .

The jaw is 100% original . This is a huge find, and I’m one of only a few to have had even one of these. The other teeth are original and jaw is beautiful . Its from Florida found many years ago. These are so rare. It provides an opportunity for someone to get a American lion at value due to no real canine .This one is so special as it has never had the teeth out of the sockets. It hasn’t been restored at all that I can see as its from an old collection which means it saves you money . This animal is much rarer than Smilodon which complete skulls if you can find one which I never had go for hundreds of thousands as I have a perfect one above ..It has a metal display also that looks fantastic . These really set it off so you can see both sides . IM just amazed to have such a jaw from the same animal with all teeth intact after maybe 50,000 or more years . This is a great investment. I may be able to get you a f real canine also at some time Ill sell you at cost .Buy missing this front tooth it saves you ½ the price and with a canine at a cost of about 1000 you can have a 6000 jaw for only maximum payout of $3500 .

Beautiful Ultra Rare Adult Homotherium Saber Cat Lower Jaw Section w 2 Incisors-1 Canine

Species : HOMOTHERIUM

Species description : This cat evolved from Machairodus and appeared at Miocene –Pliocene border about 5 MYA and lived in Africa as well as Euroasia and died out lastly in Asia and North America about 10,000 years ago so it was highly successful. It was a scimitar cat built like a modern lion that had about a 13” skull but much longer teeth called sabers. It was larger than average saber-tooth cat that was very successful yet hardly ever found in fossil records. Complete skeletons have only been found in Texas and of this animal complete skeletons in Asia have never been found and only a few skulls .The sabers per head size are smaller than other the big cats. It preyed on wooly mammoths as found out in Texas. IT looks like a megantereon however much shorter sabers and less sized lower saber guard and sabers reached to end of lower jaw as this one does. It reached 1.1 meters at shoulder . As said compared to megantereon, smilodon, and machairodotus its sabers were relatively short but still they are nice sized sabers. It provided a great puncturing and gripping force . The skull was longer than smilodon. This jaw had down-turned forward flanges to protect the scimitars . It large canine teeth were crenulated and designed for slashing rather than purely stabbing . Some of the physical appearances were unusual for a big cat as it had limbs that gave the homotherium a hyena like appearance. The forelegs were elongated while hind legs were rather squat with feet planti-grade causing back to slope down towards a short tail. It had a large nasal square nasal opening like a cheetah which allowed quicker oxygen intake with brain visual cortex large and allowed it to hunt during the day instead of night like many cats. It lived 5 million years longer than megatereon. It hunted in packs and not only killed mammoths but also rhinoceros juveniles.

Geographical Area: Possible Early Pleistocene

Location: Origin France Item description & rating: 1-10 10 X- Ultra RARE Beautiful Adult Homotherium Scimitar Saber-Tooth Cat Canine Incisor 1.25” Long Plus another reg incisor . It is 100 %original bone and 100 % Teeth original with one smaller incisor plus a large1.25” Canine larger incisor with partial front of jaw.(Per a noted authority ). Both incisors look great with also a root of another in jaw . I have wanted a whole one for years and the opportunity was afforded from a friend who is also the top expert on these creatures , and this will be admired by me & ones who read this. Only a small number found in Texas cave and 2 in Florida and a handful in China and Europe. The great thing about this species it is a form of crenatidens but a different unclassified species that needs researched even more so we can safely say only a few of this exist . AS someone who knows a little on cats said the species is close to be Xenosmulus but different so no species has been classified as of this date so hopefully a book could come from this at later date. Anyway so rare it is not a labeled known species as of yet so under crenatidans for now . This just doesn’t come along so for true collectors of sabercats this section is a must . The canine saber has wear on tip probably natural but unknown . You’ll love this one as I do if you know cats. These from these cats just aren’t available

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. NOT FOR SALE .

Amazing Remarkable 10 Year Project -Complete American Lion 17 ” Long -History

Many More pics for your viewing pleasure

The History of Lions originates with European Cave Lion(Panthera Leo fossilis in France ) in Eastern Europe then Panthera Spelae with dates ranging from 3.4 Million -500,000 years ago for the beginning with end only 10,000 years ago . All lions are decendants of this first lion including American Lion. All Lions are named for their location due to mutations . Due to fossils being so rare all literature has very few fossils to base anything on . It is believed to come across the Bering Strait 250,000 years ago to Alaska and down through Alaska along the coast and thru western Canada namely Yukon thru British Columbia all the way to LA , California South to Mexico , and then Florida with pieces in S Carolina . Since it came to Alaska almost all people believe its called American lion including me . A few papers after 2009 put Alaskan items separate but those papers can’t see the forest thru the trees. American lion is from Alaska thru Mexico (Northern end) , Canada, Florida and California and the most desired fossil in the world .Cave lions also migrated into Africa only 100,000 years ago with Ivory Coast Barbiary Lions only extinct for the last few hundred years , and African lions which still exists . Russian lions also came from Panthera European Cave lion which are much smaller .ed years ago. I have had every extinct lion(not including subspecies) in the universe which no one on the planet can say . As I said researched have partial elements and small samples and conclusions are based on little .

Almost all of these lions have very similar features and only differ by size and small DNA differences . In fact American Lion and European lions have close almost identical DNA . This one was tested 20 years ago by Larry Martin in Kansas at University so it showed similarities with European Lion so he did research way before others on this cat . While those are similar American lion La Brea is also very similar to Alaskan Lions but did mutate some. Still due to location in Alaska all people should call it American Lion. MIne was purchased when all people considered it American Lion .DNA with other lions also is very similar including Lions from LA. Up to 2010 research was done on only a few piece materials of Lions and some considered it spelea species (DNA does match almost identical) yet everywhere else on earth lions are called by where they ended up including American lions. Canada lions right next door miles away were considered American Lions by all as they said they mutated. All persons up to 2010 considered Alaskan lions . Now it really hasn’t changed my or any other persons dealing in Lions as Alaskan lions are American Lions . These people also said Atrox was a little different (yet all Lions come from European Lions ). They said the glacier advance was a dividing line with is so ridiculous as glaciers came as far south as Tennessee in east and California is West . In fact the last million years we have had 9 advances of glaciers every 100,000 years (80,000 ice age glaciers and 20 years warm . In 10,000 more years we will be in another ice age. I’ve had American lion and Florida items and bones and skulls are no different than Alaska lions in any way . Also American were like African lions but African came from European lions also . YOu don’t call African Lions European Lions . African lions are much smaller but still basically the same . The Route these lions took was down thru Alaska into Washington the route to California and Florida . I’ve had 5 European lions and sold them all and American lion material and they all look alike. That shows my qualifications as all people to me on lions. People who deal in limited fossil material are basing any judgements on minimal sources as Lion is so scarce in Alaska and anywhere else . A few individuals does not make a compelling arguement compared to seeing these items and mutations always occur to some degree due to environment but since they exist in Americas they are American Lions . I was in Yukon and they had a pelt from an American Lion at a museum and it was labeled American lion, not spealae. La Brea lions as Ive talked to them ( the museum has had on lions yet many sabertooth cats ) I can get your smilodon material but rarely lion so much rarer . This lion size is truly a King of Beasts .

American Lion has almost same DNA as many lions even African Lion but we dont call African Lions spealae which means European Lions because it doesn’t live in Europe . To me the work of 2010 is ridiculous and at minimum should call them Alaskan American Lions . Lions in every location(not identical) but they are trying to put them in a different group from Europe which makes no sense. WE know all lions came thru Yukon, and Western Canada to get to USA. Mutuations occur along the way so please everyone Alaskan lions are American Lions by anyone who really knows lions .Paper people really are limited on fossil tidbits and never see enough to make determinations . As none is available except this one so people who do papers can’t see many fossils. I’ve had more lion fossils thru years than anyone of them by far. They can’t see forest thru the trees so to speak which is reason all knowledgeable people still consider Alaskan Lion as American Lion as Alaska is part of America .

I’ve studied lions for years and all people involved in lions call Alaskan Lions, American Lions . I have lots of knowledge on earth on lions because I’ve studied them and sabercats for years .My friend is a writer of sabercat books, and I have actually had a number of American Lions partial jaws but that’s all with a few bones and Alaska lions is no different in any way according to all who deal with this material a lot

Anyway almost all of mine is from Alaska and Florida except the feet from Europe and the only one in private hands known as no skulls in Florida exist in private collections as well as La Brae Tar Pits -all owned by government .This lion is one -of -a -kind as someone can’t get another anywhere . All people in Alaska and Canada including Yukon as I was there and saw one at a museum as one was found frozen and placed as American Lion. I ‘ve seen so many times google does not have correct info on dinosaurs and mammals so hope this puts to rest any differences. I also know the top expert in the world in Africa and Middle East,and he agrees wholeheartedly. All lions have minor differences even in same countries like Africa but all are closely related -Again all from same lion from Europe -spelea(fossils in France) . Even European spealea now is impossible to find as some were on market a last 10 years but now government controlled areas means no more . These go over $350,000 and will rise a lot next 20 years so ones in private hands will not sell for sure .

This cat no one has anywhere on earth. Someday maybe you get the chance to buy but not now . Its worth at least 500,000 as one of a kind . The only place on earth they find American Lion was Alaska but not nothing for at least 10 years so how can you price one-of-a kind.

No Where Else on Earth-Almost Totally Original Beautiful American Lion Skeleton(few lions )

Species : Panthera ATROX Lion & spelaea

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 of an American Lion.. 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 almost identical to Cave Lion so they are identical species just like Smilodon has 3 species all the same animal . There is Smilodon fatalis, Smilodon californicus , and Smilodon floridius all named by location nothing else . Its the same animal just like the main 2 species of prehistoric lion. This is the largest Lion with spealea that ever lived much larger than African Lions- with skulls up to 16-20 inches over 10-15% larger. It roamed in Alaska, California at La Brea, Canada, Mexico and Florida with traces in S Carolina. It is the largest carnivore ever except Short-face Bear which I also have a skull. All extinct lions now are not found except Russia. In 2010 Alaskan Lions were changed to spelaea with some people , but all people who work with Lion still call it American Lion. This one was found most probable in Yukon upon further examination which to all is American Lion. All Lions are identified by locations with Gir Forest Lions, African Lions, Extinct- Ivory Coast Barbiary Lions(1960), Russian Lions , and European Cave lions, and American Lions . I have had all of these-one of few people on earth to have these. From all fossils we know American Lion was much rarer than Smilodon when they lived and smarter . At La Brea only 5 skeletons exist , and hundreds of Smilodon found by government so no private collectors here . They have found atrox tracks in Missouri but no fossils found . WE do know Lion fossils first showed up in Africa 1.7 -1.4 million years ago then UK and Germany 680,000 (Spelae), and then they went to Asia much later to Beringa Lions in Russia then over Bering Strait to form American lions from Alaska to Mexico to Florida and S Carolina . So only ones left are ancestors much smaller than original African Lions. Those now probably migrated from Spelea in Europe much later 100,000 years ago to form lions of today as they obviously left Africa then migrated back. Some info is just not correct on lions as many other animals . Some people say American lions arose from one population in Canada Beringa Lions in Pleistocene from Russia but these lions are the smallest lion ever so how did the largest Lion in America come from smallest when right next door lions were in Alaska which were huge as you see one here. There is no difference between American Lion and Spelea except American Lions was in North America which Alaska is a member USA. All dealers who work with this knows this but paper people can’t see forest thru the trees and work with such limited pool of fossils as it’s so rare.


Geographic Period : Late Pleistocene Epoch 60,000- 10,000 Geographic time: 30,000 years ago

Item Location : Gold Mine(Cave) Close to Border in Alaska next to Yukon and also FLORIDA a different species . This was very close to border either way and many more Gold Mines in Yukon . Northwest Of Skagway -Yukon border. No established towns there just mining camps according to original owner .

Item rating and description : 1-10 *11 Words really don’t match how great, wonderful, awe inspiring, magnificent this American Lion is. It’s 11 ft 9 inches long and if tale wasn’t up it would be over 12 ft long. Its amazing 56 ” high also with 28” at widest . It is original bone from 4 Lion individuals almost all of which was in the Americas. Only the ribs, verts and 7-10 major larger bones were from Florida with most of the Feet being spelaea species. You see no feet have been found in the Americas for American Lion except La Brea from all known knowledge. After speaking to original owner of skull it appears the skull and many inner bones may be from Yukon even though dealer was living close to border in Alaska. So few of these animals exist but names of species are variable even in Alaska as American Lion was the original known species for many years until 2009 for all , since then some papers called it Europe Panthera Spelea species only in Alaska from a few specimens so it’s not set in stone according to another lion expert as with myself. To me even the notion American lion starts at border of Alaska and Yukon is ridiculous . It’s in the Americas its American Lion real simple. No one can say 1 mile separates it when all lions came 1 lion from Europe over Bering Strait anyway. Again to me and most others in the business it’s all American Lion anyway whether Alaska or not. Anyway keep in mind no more than maybe 6 skeletons exist in the world known with all but one from La Brea, and this is one of best and one-of-kind anyway. In Alaska and Yukon no known complete skeletons exist. I was in the Yukon and asked and no one knew of one -skeleton. If they were there Miners are more interested in Gold than getting bones. These North American Bones were collected 25 years ago from a Gold miner .La Brea Tar pits have 5 but not one is from one animal but many put together from many lion bones. Mine all the verts and ribs are one animal, as well as 7-10 inner bones . The 17” skull is from one, and most of inner major bones except maybe 7-10 inner bones also from Florida are all from same lion also. Anyway the feet are from another lion(cave), which is the same DNA. So this is by far one of best American Lions in the world by far. The skull is 98 % original bone and according to many many top people in the field It’s maybe the best anywhere. The American Lion to be is the absolute height of the fossil world as I’d rather have that as it’s rarer than Smilodon material and I love saber-tooth cats. No one has this, not even the American natural History Museum as they have a half- skull only. I feel like the luckiest person in the world as I’ll enjoy for years. Skulls are unheard of and bones also. My best friend -a cat expert who does books, has all the sabercats, had only 1 skull from Alaska. The American lion skeleton is the most prized fossil in the world . Even the claws are huge modern lion as no American lion exists since it’s organic and this took a long time to get huge claws as well as some foot bones cave lion . The sheaths are all original sheaths from prehistoric lions with some some repaired with other lion species ( few modern)sheaths to make them whole. .It took me 10 years to gather 4 main animals to do this. A few substitutions had to be made due to availability, but almost all prehistoric lion. This one appears to be at least at least 30,000 years old on skull with others less . NO museum, no private collector known has a better complete skull as this is almost perfect . The teeth canines are all original teeth . A few were repaired. I searched the entire country for years to get the right skeleton with many wasted bones that didn’t work from American Lion . The measurements of all the bones matches a 17 “ female skull. The teeth were repaired and just 2 from other same size American Lion but all teeth are present. I don’t want to even find fault with this skull and skeleton because there is so little not original . It should be looked at whole as its so good. To my knowledge no other American Lion Complete Skeleton exists in private hands. The only ones known are 1 from a Wyoming Trapped Pit in a museum and 5 at LaBrea Tar Pits . This is 98% original bone least . Basically only the shoulder blades has any amount of restore at all with a little on the ribs & was done by the nation’s best prepper. He knows everything on skulls of cats also. Even a perfectionist can’t find fault with 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 me it’s the best ever found or best known. The originality is spectacular as you will never find more lion bone on any skeleton anywhere. I can’t believe it . Its too amazing I can’t describe the emotional feeling of ownership of this cat. It doesn’t get any better. IM so lucky. What preservation this cat shows. Darker color indicates age or location found so this is amazing as this is darker than cave lions. However what is normal as nothing compares to this anywhere .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. Its mine forever to look at. NO trying to buy it please You cant assign a value . Nothing was spared including huge costs to me to make this all Lion. In fact it costs me 15,000 for claws and Lion sheaths alone until right ones found for this animal -extremely rare due to huge size of claws just like an American lion-some partial lion claws were inside sheaths so those were kept intact also . So this is One-of-a Kind . It’s being stored at a warehouse in Maryland .There are again only a few in the World outside of LaBrea Tarpits and they are also from a variety of American Lions Displayed in jumping attacking position . Not for sale . Plan on keeping many years as if your a fossil lover nothing beats this. This is the only Known American Lion in private hands -only a few skulls have been found outside La Brea (maybe 5 there also)
