Cat Skull (Sabertooth Cat) Cast Replica - Xenosmilus hodsonae #BC-113

-Size: 13¼"L x 7"W x 6½"H 

-Species: Xenosmilus hodsonae

-Notes: In 1981, the remains of two specimens were found in the Haile limestone quarries in Alachua County, Florida. Rather than being a member of one of the two established groups of saber-toothed cats - Homotherium and Smilodon - in 1994, these specimens were suspected of representing a new genus, Xenosmilus hodsonae. This new genus combined the short, stout-legged features of the robust Smilodon with the scimitar teeth of Homotherium, resulting in a truly fearsome predator. The new feline had a bite even stronger than the Homotherium because of a longer sagittal crest and a larger temporalis muscle. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw). Please allow up to 1 week for processing time with cast replicas as most of these items are made to order. Thank you for your understanding.
