palaeoart Today I finally got to finish the preparation of this beautifully preserved 30 million year old Daphoenus skull from the White River Formation of South Dakota. Although it’s only the upper skull, the teeth (especially those large canines) are in near perfect condition. Daphoenus is part of the Bear Dog family (Amphicyons) which sadly have no living descendants. Bear Dogs, as they sound, showed similar skeletal adaptations to both early dogs 🐶 as well as bears 🐻 – especially as they walked with plantigrade feet (walking with Metatarsals touching the ground), just like Bears do. Very happy with this final specimen

The Crooked Doe

Her deformity was most likely caused by a birth defect—probably Wry Nose Syndrome.

I’ve still got these two black bears for sale. I’ll consider all reasonable offers and trades. Still US only, and you have to make sure they’re legal to have in your state.
