Own a Scaled Skull of the most powerful dog to ever live! Aenocyon dirus (= Canis dirus) is the new name for this gigantic canid.

Every bit as large as the wolves in a recent popular TV and book series,  Aenocyon dirus, aka the Dire Wolf, averaged 150 lbs in weight. It has the strongest bite of any dog ever discovered and lived in packs capable of taking down and eating horses, camels, bison, and even mammoths and mastodons. The La Brea tarpits have produced hundreds of its skulls and jumbled skeletons.

Includes

  • Dire Wolf Scaled Skull: 6 1/2" long, 4" wide, 3 3/4" high, (7" x 6" x 4" on base)
  • Nameplate
  • Exclusive 5" x 7" paleo artwork

All replicas are cast from molds of the original fossil and hand-painted by paleoartisans in the USA.
