A selection of saber tooth tiger fossils
On this page, you will find a useful selection of all saber-toothed cat fossils currently available online. From a rare Smilodon skull to a more common saber-toothed cat canine. Smilodons and saber-toothed cat fossils are very much sought-after. They are popular for their impressive saber-toothed canines and have been represented in several cartoons (Ice Age) and comics (Rahan). You will find on this page a selection of very rare smilodon fossils and more common saber-toothed cat fossils. The rarest fossils are at the top of our selection.
Smilodon skull available
A smilodon skull is a masterpiece of any fossil collections. But count at least $10,000 for a nicely preserved smilodon skull. Indeed, it is very difficult to find a complete smilodon skulls (most of the time we found only their canines) and there are several museums and collectors looking for them, so their value on the market is very high.
Saber-toothed cat skull fossils
On top of smilodon, you will find here several saber-toothed cat skulls. For example, we will display a rare Machairodus horribilis skull. Some other species like Machairodus robinsoni or M. aphanistus can be available too.

Saber-toothed cat canines and jaws.
If a complete skull is too expensive for you, have a look to the bottom of our selection. You will find some large saber-toothed cat canines, some interesting saber-toothed tiger jaws and so on. And as some people cannot afford real fossils, we will also display some nice saber-toothed sat skull replicas.
What is the difference between a Smilodon and a saber-toothed cat ?
There were more than one hundred different species of saber-toothed cats, all of them are now extinct. Smilodons were a genus of saber-toothed cats who lived in America. They disappeared 100,000 years ago and they had some impressive canines of 32cm for the largest specimens. On this page, you will also find several Machairodus fossils. Machairodus was a genus of saber-toothed cat who lived in North America, Eurasia and Africa. Machairodus were as big as a modern lion or tiger ! The term "saber-toothed tiger" is rather incorrect as they are not closely linked with our modern tiger, Panthera tigris.
How much is a saber-toothed tiger skull worth ?
Well it all depends of the size and the preservation state of the saber-toothed cat skull. The best skull have reached a crazy valorisation of $320,000. You will find here some rare skull fossils of Machairodus horribilis for $10,000 and more. A pair of canines will be found around $3,000.
