Got to see this incredible 30 million year old false sabretooth cat skull a few weeks back once it was fully prepped. This is the skull of a beautiful Dinictis carnivore from the White River Formation. Dinictis is an extinct genus from the Nimravidae family which sadly have no living members left. Nimravids were noteable for their elongated canines or sabres. Although Dinictis were significantly elongated, it’s close cousin Hoplophoneus had even bigger sabres. These are referred to a β€œfalse” as they are not true cats and are in fact categorised as Feliformia. Nimravids roamed for 15 million years between 40 and 15myo. The only living true cat to still feature elongated canines is the Snow Leopard. #dinictis #dinictisfelina #falsesabretoothcat #sabretooth #sabre #elongated #canines #feliformia #oligocene #eocene #fossil #fossils #fossilart #fossilpreparation #fossilhunter #fossillovers #fossiladdict #palaeoart #palaeontology #paleoart #paleontology #evolution #extinction #extinct #skulls #skull #skullsofinstagram #prehistoric #predator

A 'false sabretoothed-cat' from the late Eocene. Tomorrow, after I've edited it, I'll be putting a timelapse video of this piece on my YouTube channel. It will also go up on redbubble in the morning.

If you have any prehistoric mammals you'd like to see, let me know! I'm going to do a few more in this style on the cream rag paper.
