Extremely Rare Marsupial Lion Thylacoleo Incisor

This is probably one of the rarest Pleistocene carnivore fossils in the world. I would venture to say that it is more uncommon than even a saber cat fossil. All cave fossils from Australia are very uncommon to begin with, let alone one that is rarely found. Instead of canines, the marsupial lion -- technically speaking, not even a lion -- had these specialized incisors instead. This one is perfectly preserved down to the very fragile and hollow root. This is Australia's version of a smilodon saber. You don't want to miss this opportunity. You may never have it again.
