Item details



Polyurethane Resin, Steel


Height: 15 Inches; Width: 10 Inches; Depth: 14 Inches


Indarctos is an extinct bear whose closest living relative is the giant panda. Fossils of Indarctos have been found all across the northern hemisphere including Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America, that lived from the Miocene through the Pliocene. Like most bears, it is assumed that Indarctos was an omnivore, with broad, blunt teeth suited for crushing its food. This species, Indarctos zdanskyi, was initially described in 2003 by Qui and Tedford from a skull that was collected from Baode, China in 1934 and stored in the Frick Collection at the American Museum of Natural History. This particular specimen is a replica of a fossil skull collected from Miocene sediments of the Gansu Province in China.

This is a museum quality cast replica made with a durable polyurethane resin. It was molded directly from the original restored skull, not a 3D printed skull or a sculpture. The resin cast is made on demand and is produced using methods that preserve all of the fine details found in the original specimen.

Display size: 15”x10”x14” as displayed with mouth open, not including the display stand. Variations on the color of the skull and the mount (i.e. wall mount) are possible.
