Nothing Like This In the World” 95% Plus Original TERRIBLE PIG”(Archaeotherium)-Top Carnivore of its Time

Species: Archaeotherium mortoni

Species description: Largest Species of Entelodont and Largest Carivore Pig of all time. It was a relative of theungulates and a cow- sized predator with large canines. They ate camels , oreodonts , brontotheres ,and horses on the Oligocene fields. It could also dig for roots and tubers. It had an elongated skull with long bony knobs beneath the eyes and on the lower jaws. It also had long spines on its thoracic vertebrae over the shoulders and a small brain,and often obtained lengths over 6 ‘. Its jaw could snap shut quickly and kill any animal during its time and was highly successful. It hunted in packs and could run off a huge hyaenodon.

Geological strata: Scenic Member Brule Formation

Geological period: Early-Middle Oligocene Period 32-28 MYA Orellan

Item location: Badlands of Western South Dakota, Custer County, Boyce Family Ranch

Item rating and description:1-10 9.9 – Rarest of Rare Top Best Quality” Early Terrible PIG “ Archaeotherium 19” long by 15” wide. What is amazing this pig was early so it’s rare and smaller than later ones but it’s a old adult with some wear on teeth .This is the famous pig(entelodont) so highly publized in BBC Walking with Prehistoric Beasts. This is simply amazing quality with hardly any restore. One premolar on top and one on bottom with one incisor on teeth restored and a few spot fills is about it. A little on back of one lower and a little in back with ears perfect. The quality is the best I have ever seen(except on Lee piece years ago) and is virtually uncomparable to any . IT is a complete skull .This is for only top collectors who want an item you can’t get anywhere on quality. Quality means I paid a lot for this, so if you wish quality you have to pay . I’ve seen some not near as good go for $16,000 The canines are 2.25 inches long and all canines teeth original.This specimen may the best in the world so stop your drooling. This is one of my top five treasures. The early ones are hardly ever found. Size is not important on this because it’s early carnivore as it’s still at top of food chain, but quality is amazing. Just look at this bone. Also the display is simply amazing as it turns around to see all sides, which is an added huge advantage to display this prehistoric carnivore (Yes pigs were carnivores). This was marked well over this at Tucson show. What a treat for a discerning client . Just look at these pictures . You can click on pictures for closeups.

Amazing Quality over 95% Extinct Rare Species of Hyaenodon Skull

Species: Hyaenodon Cruentus

Species description: This was the next to largest species in North America with massive high saggital crest in back of head, long narrow snout, short neck and long body and tail. It was the top single carnivore although a number of Terrible Pigs could drive one off. IT definitely was a carnivore due to teeth formation with crushing bone routine with large canines. This one did hunt in packs while horridus (Large one bigger than a small rhino was a loner).Male specimens show grinding marks on their teeth which means tooth-grinding was used as intimidation with animals. This was the king carnivore with saber-cats at this time. It is part of the creodont line that went extinct 20 MYA ago in America but survived well for 20 MYA plus.

Geological strata: White River Formation

Geological period: Oligocene Period 40- Early Miocene23 MYA

Item location : Badlands of Western S Dakota ,Pennington County

Item rating and description: 1-10 9.8 -Special Rare 95% Original American Carnivore 7” Hyaenodon Skull with excellent bone structure. This was a carnivore called a creodont which died out 23 Million years ago and teeth show this. This is an excellent one with at least 95% original with almost all teeth original. In fact even the small incisors are present which is amazing One lower canine reapired and one other tooh repaired is it / The quality is amazing of this smaller hyaenodon . It is very rare as Ive only seen a few last 5 years . I used to get them but not this good . Prep was done very well by a top prepper. One spot on top and one back of lower jaw has some restore and that’s it . Its just beautiful. The quality, color is even more beautiful than the famous Lee specimen I had which sold for $3500. It is the typical color of beige with yellow tint with darker lines . This is one of rarest creodont species. Step up to the plate and this is one you can’t take your eyes off. It is a must for a collector. It is open mouth that is very secure since matrix was left in the middle only so all teeth are exposed. This is really the best way to show the true line up of teeth and the skull instead of skull alterations on mounted specimens artificially changed. People do not know this but this way is best on these. I decide to sell a giveaway price to get your business. These are worth at least 1000 more. I paid wholesale just under this

Ultra Rare Russian Huge 28” Long Equus Kabollus Extinct Pleistocene Upper Horse Skull 100% Original

Species: Equus kabollus

Horses evolved from earlier horses to be large and this horse was the one the modern caballus evolved from so this is extinct at end of last ice age. They were long – legged compared to earlier horses and long necked with a long tail They are adapted to open terrain, from plains to savannahs. These had slender legs ending in a single hoof. These were herbivores that lived from grazing on tough fibrous food such as leaves, bark, but are normally grazers. They went extinct at the end of last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. The skull is much bigger than normal Equus species so one of largest horses ever.

While having molars and premolars on the right side, some teeth are missing but rest of skull is intact.

It was probably the largest horse anywhere on earth 30,000 years ago and none today exist any larger. This is a real treasure from a part of the world only recently open to us. This is a spectacular later extinct horse species that evolved into today’s species in Russia. If you google this horse you will find nothing on it as it’s so rare. It died out 30,000 years ago in Russia, and this is first whole one I ever saw. I have never even seen pieces of this skull let alone an entire upper so better get it before another collector does. It’s so exceptional with no restoration I can find anywhere so virtually 100% original. This skull is all original so not touched by human hands to destroy the value on such a rare piece. The beauty and bone quality of this animal is simply fantastic. It’s worth every penny plus more at under a thousand dollars.

BEYOND FANTASTIC - Most Desired Fossil on The Planet - LARGE LA BREA TAR PITS DIRE WOLF 13.75”

Species: Dire wolf (Canis dirus)

Species Description: It was closely related to Gray wolf in many features but it is not direct ancestor of any species today . IT became extinct 10,000 years ago with wooly mammoth . IT was larger than Gray Wolf averaging 5 ft in length and weighing 150-175 lbs . Legs of Dire Wolf was shorter and sturdier than those of gray wolf and the brain case was smaller to than the gray wolf. These were only found in California and Florida.

Geological timeframe: Pleistocene 2 MYA -10,000

Location: La Brea Tar Pits , LA California USA

Description and Rating: (1-10) **10** SPECTACULAR AMAZING LA BREA TAR PITS HIGHLY ORIGINAL HUGE DIRE WOLF 13.75” Skull . I would say this is one of a kind but I have two of them . I haven’t seen a La Brea Dire Wolf in years until I saw one this year that was 50% real and never saw one this good except the other one I have .. This is so wonderful I can’t find the words to express my amazement at the quality of this specimen. It is highly original and would estimate conservatively 80-85% teeth plus most of upper skull bone original .. The skull is amazing. It has only restore at small amount in back above condyles on sagittal crest, one zygo, little on back of lower jaws ,fill between pieces , and that’s it . The condyles are real. The teeth are amazing .Words just can’t describe this piece . It was so difficult to prep because normal air compression work would have caused the color to change as it was so fragile and the most difficult prep job a top prepper ever did . It took one year to complete. It is just spectacular . Even the zygos are mostly original on this animal. It has repair but teeth except incisors original , and little need repair on these . They are wonderful . This was of course from an old collection and was laying around for probably over 50 years before the government took over ownership . 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. This is the original color in an area of high concentration of oil as some are lighter. Well I can’t say more on this as words are not adequate to do this justice so maybe the pictures will. This is darker than my other one.

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

WOW I’ve wanted one for many years, and this is the most complete and best I ever saw . This has no restoration and the only repair was the horns placed on the skull. Sure you could wait for 20 years to see if one comes and then pay 50,000 at auction plus 20% so $60,000 as the last full one went for or buy this at way better cost and get the easy parts later cheaper as parts to add. You see the upper skull and large rack is in place and only the ends and the lower jaw-the two easiest to find are not there. These would and could be bought over the years as they do come. Anyway it is perfect on what is there and so beautiful found in a gravel pit in Germany recently this year. This is the first I ever had-in fact the best ever saw.

So even if one was found this is the best you will ever have a chance to buy . I added a 22 ” left side of deer at end so all you need for a complete one is animal right side from back to have a complete one I also can get a lower for $2000 more YOu get a great price now for almost all and I can get all .
