  2. Hello all, looking for some opinions on this piece. Not worried about it being composited as long as it is all real cave bear bone and nothings cast. Thanks in advance and happy New Year!
  3.

  4. Cave Bear???

    Can anyone help me to identify this skull?? It came from China 30 years ago and appears to be a young cave bear but I am not 100% positive. I thought it may be a bear-dog or Hyaenodon type of canid but the snout is too short. A percrocuta was also a thought, but they seem extremely rare. Any information would be gladly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  5. Short face bear v cave bear

    Hello everyone, I’ve recently purchased what’s said to be a 13 inch cave bear jaw. I’ve been doing research and I’m finding it difficult to tell the difference between a cave bear and a short face bear jaw. Does anyone have any insight, could this jaw be easily misidentified? kind regards Dylan
  6. Large Cave Bear Jaw

    Hi all I’m about to jump on a big buy and i just wanted to ask if it looks like a good idea. it’s had very minor repairs and currently has a protective wax coating. what does everyone think? I would appreciate your opinion very much kind regards Dylan Macnish
  7. Florida Cave Bear or Bison Toe Bone?

    Good evening fossil folks, I found a small bone on a Tampa Bay beach on the west coast of Florida. After doing some research I saw similarities to a cave bear toe bone and/or bison. It's approximately 1" x 3/4" and very worn with a baseline crack. I have 7 photos of different angles. Can you ID? Thanks all!
  8. Hello, recently purchased a bear paw from an online store. It was advertised as 20% restored from an old collection. The paw seems coated or painted with something and I am trying to figure out what it is. There are a few chips where it is yellow tanish underneath the "coating". Last picture is theirs and the rest I took. Thanks for the help in advance.
  9. I just finished up a display case for my dad's cave bear tooth. It will go on the wall. The background is an old diagram of a cave bear jaw; I have digital copy. I printed it on card stock at shutterfly.com. It is really lovely. I think the card stock looks a lot better than the regular print for this; with a coupon, it was free. The shadowbox frame is a very nice one I got at Micheals; with a sale and a coupon I got it for about $7. It is 8x10 and front opening. I drilled a hole in the back of the frame and put in a copper wire loop for holding the tooth. The tooth is removable. The image I used is attached below, feel free download it to print your own. I have one extra copy of the image printed on card stock, if someone wants it to make their own, I'll send it to you if you pay postage. Can't promise the USPS won't bend it though.

  11. Possible cave bear, piece of femur

    Dear Guys, I have recently found one piece of femur which is very similar to cave bear because of its size. The length of piece is 15,5 cm and the width in joint part is 7,5 cm. Any idea what is this? Best regards Domas
  12. Composite skeletone

    Hello all, I already posted this topic in Paleo Re-creations, but nobody answered there. I want to make a composite skeleton from an extinct animal, but I don't know witch species I take best. I already tought about Oreodont, cave bear, bison... Do you guys know an animal whose it is possible to collect all the bones (skull is not necassary, but I would love a real skull) Keichousaur is not a good example, because I want have the fun for searching, buying and making a composite. It think mammals are the only option, because reptiles are expensive and difficult to collect all the bones, maybe alligator is possible? What do you guys think about it? Greetings

    I've laid out my Austrian (and a couple Romanian) Ursus spelaeus collection on my desk. Lots of stuff! I've been trying to assemble a whole paw but am missing several bones of the right size.
