Brontotherium Titanothere skull replica

Titanothere skull replica Brontotherium cast replica.

The Brontotherium or Bronthere was genus of rhino species known as Brontops,

This cast is made of strong resin and can endure rough handling.

It is an impressive full size replica 100% complete, with rudimentary "horn" cores evident. The finely detailed skull is 29 inches long and weighs about 20 pounds. The cranium is hollow. The jaw is separate and is moveable. All the teeth are present and complete.

This complete Brontotherium (Leidy) skull represents a primitive low horned stage Titanothere from the lower Oligocene of North America. The mode of feeding and the food of the broad-headed and long-headed Brontotherium can not be inferred with certainty, because their dentition differs considerably from that of any modern animal. The grinding teeth were perfectly adapted to a combination of cutting and crushing food. This adaptation implies a choice of succulent food consisting of relatively coarse leaves, grasses, buds, twigs, roots, and tubers such as would be found in the forest and stream habitats.

Dimensions of the fossil skull replica - 24" long x 13" wide.

Titanotheres appeared as the dominant animals that existed throughout a long and very interesting epoch in geologic history. The Titanothere skulls were highly modified over time and space. Titanotheres appeared in the fossil record very soon after the C-T (Cretaceous-Tertiary) extinction of the dinosaurs. The Titanothere family is known from its earliest beginnings in Wind River Mountains of Wyoming in the first third of the Tertiary period. The earliest Eocene Titanotheres did not have horns used as offense and defense. In the Titanotheres we see the growth of a great and vigorous family tree, giving off numerous branches (phyla), which diverge in characters and habits while retaining hereditary resemblances and tendencies of transformation.

The so-called horns of the Titanotheres arise as rectigradations. They consist of osseous protuberances of the skull above the eyes, where the frontals overlap the nasal bones. In life they were probably covered with tough skin rather than with horns.

Adult Giant Cave Bear skull: Bears are members of the Order Carnivora, Family Ursidae that originated during the Oligocene Era in Europe. These adult bears could reach about 10 feet across the shoulder and stand over 12 feet tall. The remains of over 30,000 cave bears were found in Drachenhohle in Austria.

Giant Beaver Castoroides ohioensis

Belonging to the Pleistocene era, Rancholabrean epoch, the Giant Beaver became extinct about 10,000 years ago. Although it ranged from Alaska to Florida, there have been very few specimens found.

Stegodon skull and skeleton cast replica

Stegodon are one of the largest of extinct elephants species (Proboscidean) with adults being 13 feet high at the shoulder, 26 feet long, not including 10 foot long nearly straight tusks. The genus Stegodon, (from Greek stegos: meaning roof, and odon: meaning tooth, referring to the step ridges on the molar tooth) has its origins in the late Miocene of Asia and belongs to the family Stegodontidae. There are 6 recognized species. Stegodons probably originated from Gomphothierium, and developed into a new direction with increase molar size and ridge-like dental features. The tusks were so close together that the trunk probably did not lye between them but instead draped over. Stegodon moved into Africa in the Pliocene and is regarded as the ancestor to present day elephants, as well as the extinct mammoths. The oldest finds of Stegodon are found in Asia. Stegodon diet consists of branches and foliage of trees.

Uintatherium Skeleton fossil cast replica

Uintatherium Skeleton Rare and exotic dinocerta mammal of Eocene Uinta Colorado. Gunma MNH (Japan).

Uintatherium is an extinct genus of mammals. Fossil remains were discovered near Fort Bridger, Wyoming. This was a large browsing animal, about the size of a rhinoceros. What was most unusual about Uintatherium was its skull which was large and strongly built. Uintatherium had a flat, concave skull a feature not found in any other mammal, save, perhaps in some brontotheres. Its cranial capacity was exceptionally small due the walls of the cranium being tremendously thick. The weight of the skull was mitigated by numerous sinuses permeating the walls of the cranium, like those in an elephant's skull. The large upper canines were apparently formidable defensive weapons and were larger in males than in females.

Uintatherium mounted skeleton measures: 114in (2.89 m) length.

Uintatherium skull cast replica

The skulls of the males bore six prominent knob-like ossicones (horn-like or antler-like protuberance) which grew from the frontal region of the skull. The function of these structures is unknown. They may have been of used for defense or display. Uintatherium lived during the early to middle portions of the Eocene. It was an herbivore, eating leaves, grasses and shrubs. Uintatherium lived near water and used its sabre-like canines to pluck the aquatic and marsh plants which comprised its diet. It became extinct by climatic changes and competition with brontotheres, and true and hyrachodont rhinocerii without leaving any descendants.
