ULTRA Rare Giant American Lion Toe Bone

I would venture to say that american lion fossils are more rare than even the almighty saber cat. In Rancho La Brea, there were over 2100 saber cat individuals found and only 80 american lion. In Florida it is also much more uncommon than smilodon.

This massive toe bone is shows sign of pathology. There is quite a bit of extra bone that has grown on one side. I have shown it pictured next to a fair sized jaguar toe bone for comparison (which is also for sale in another posting). A rare opportunity to add one of the most sought after cat fossils to your collection.
