Dinictis (often called the false saber-toothed cat) is actually a Nimravid. This is one of several different genera and species of ‘cat’ that lived on what is now North America’s Great Plains during the Oligocene Period. The genus ranged from Colorado to Canada and from Nebraska to Oregon.
Our replica is of an extremely good original juvenile skull. The juvenile sabers are in place with the adult sabers just beginning to erupt behind them!
Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for some research or reference purposes. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
