Extinct GENUINE 

CAVE BEAR FOSSILS

(Ursus spelaeus)

from Romania, Pleistocene era

Since the Cave Bear was declared a National Treasure by Romania, no more of these fossils will be legally released from their borders.  THIS IS ONE OF TWO OF THE LAST CAVE BEAR SKELETONS OUT OF ROMANIA, BEFORE THIS DECLARATION. 

 We are pleased to offer you this generous selection with authentication papers, export papers & information card.

LARGER than the Russian Bear, THIS IS A TRUE CAVE DWELLING BEAR from the Carpathian Mountain caves in the area of Brasov or Kronstadt,  Romania ("Brasso" translation in Hungarian).  Dated to the Pleistocene Era (42,000 to 100,000 years old).  The male cave bear grew to 10 feet or more in length, and a weight of up to a ton (2000 pounds).

Early discoveries of Cave Bear skeletal remains, found in the caves of Central Europe, were thought to be from unicorns and DRAGONS as well as bear.  The bones of this European Cave Bear, considered to be of medicinal value, were pulverized and used in pharmacies for potions and elixirs.

From 1920-1924, over 100,000 cave bear skeletons were taken from the Drachenhohle Cave near Mixnitz, Austria and used for PHOSPHATE and FERTILIZER - gee, what a waste of such unique fossils!

Open letter from Glenn:

It is with a very distinct amount of pleasure that I make my following intentions known to our loyal customers, friends and fellow business associates.

I have reached a point in my life where I have had the pleasure of building a very successful business.  My ever-growing curiosity over the past 38 years has led me to the far reaches of the earth, pursuing my dream of finding the strangest, most bizarre oddities that you see on our website.

These past 11 years, Heidi has been involved in my business. Early on, our businesses were combined, creating another whole dimension encompassing many beautiful categories of things we have found from new travels together.

So I have decided it's time to hand over the reins of this partnership to my lovely and capable wife Heidi, making her the sole proprietor of Where on Earth effective January 2008.

I will continue to support Heidi, but in a much different role.  This change in management will allow me more time to pursue other creative choices.  (Lest you think I will be idle, here I am restoring a gator skull, and our cave bear skeleton.  This is like putting together model airplanes and cars I never got to play with when I was a kid).

One weekend's work with cameos & eyeglass loops:

jewelry-glenn.jpg (145789 bytes)

I hope you will join me in further support and interest in Where on Earth as we continue our travels to find the unusual, as well as educational endeavors.

As a sign of her mutual interest, she has taken a quantum leap in the new direction of the future of Where on Earth.  Heidi has made her first sole selection, a large addition to our outstanding collection.  It is with admiration and love that I share with you and showcase - 

Direct from Romania - The Romanian Cave Bear Collection.  Here's Heidi posing with Mr. Bear shortly after we uncrated and assembled him:
