    This is a Cave Bear recreation we are doing. This is kind of the test run. There are things we have to change, but it will give you an idea of the size. Only 8 more to go after this!

    That's crazy, I love it. Did you have measurements of any kind that you could go by? Thanks for posting the pics.

    We went off actual skull measurements, claw measurements and based on a size estimated to be one and a half times larger than the largest brown bear

    Lucky your have a big enough shop. I think after just one of those mounts I would fall over dead. Good luck and keep us posted. Would be cool to have all 9 together in one pic.

  13. Awesome. Can't wait to see the finished project. Did you make other prehistoric animal reproductions or is this bear your first one? What are the other nine? Are they cave bears too?

    How did you determine the proportions? It looks great, but the proportions look different from a black or brown bear's.
