Nimravid Skull (False Sabertooth Cat) Cast Replica - Dinictis felina #BC-030

-Size: 7"L x 4¼"W x 3¾"H

-Species: Dinictis felina

-Notes: Dinictis lived on the plains of North America 40-35 million years ago. Ancestors to modern cats, this ancient skull is reminiscent of today's Clouded Leopard. About the size of today's cougar, Dinictis had short, powerful legs and a long tail. Unlike extant felines, which walk on their toes, they were more flat-footed. The canines are elongated as with the later occurring saber-toothed cats but not as pronounced. This feature coupled with their smaller size leads to their label as the 'false sabertooth' cat. This rare specimen is from the Brule Formation in South Dakota. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw). This skull comes with a metal display stand. 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.
