There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

This is a link where the average skull size for Ursus ingressus is around 470-520 mm, and according to that link there is another large skull at 540 mm long.

Originally from Baidu, but I don't think the thread exists anymore.

And I did merely invoke someone else's finding, and I guess it could be a local museum somewhere from the Southeast Europe.

" Megalonyx vs Human ?


by Roman Uchytel/ Wikipedia

Megalonyx (Greek, "large claw") is a genus of ground sloths of the family Megalonychidae, native to North America during Pleistocene epoch. It became extinct during the Quaternary extinction event at the end of the Rancholabrean of the Pleistocene, living from ~2.4 Mya—11,000 years ago. The type species, M. jeffersonii, measured about 3 meters (9.8 ft) and weighed up to 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lb). Megalonyx is descended from Pliometanastes, a genus of ground sloth that had arrived in North America during the Late Miocene, prior to the Great American Biotic Interchange. Megalonyx had the widest distribution of any North American ground sloth, having a range encompassing most of the contiguous United States, extending as far North as Alaska during warm periods.

" First Ever Preserved Grown Up Cave Bear - Even Its Nose Is Intact - Unearthed On The Arctic island ?
Separately at least one preserved carcass of a cave bear cub found on the mainland of Yakutia, with scientists hopeful of obtaining its DNA.
More details of the finds are to be announced soon.
Until now only the bones of cave bears have been discovered. 
The new finds are of ‘world importance’, according to one of Russia’s leading experts on extinct Ice Age species. 
Scientist Lena Grigorieva said of the island discovery of the adult beast: 'Today this is the first and only find of its kind - a whole bear carcass with soft tissues.
'It is completely preserved, with all internal organs in place including even its nose.
“Previously, only skulls and bones were found. This find is of great importance for the whole world.’
The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) is a prehistoric species or subspecies that lived in Eurasia in the Middle and Late Pleistocene period and became extinct about 15,000 years ago.
According to the rough preliminary suggestions the bear could live in Karginsky interglacial (this was the period between 22,000 and 39,500 years).
'It is necessary to carry out radiocarbon analysis to determine the precise age of the bear,’ said senior researcher Maxim Cheprasov from the Mammoth Museum laboratory in Yakutsk.
The finder transferred the right to research to the scientists of NEFU, he said. "

I can’t believe they actually have a preserved body of an adult cave bear, I didn’t think that was possible since most of the bodies found are young or infants . The body is probably huge more info will probably be announced soon , I wouldn’t be surprised if they found a preserved cave hyena body either .

Perhaps we would have now a DNA complete fragment ? What about "A Pleistocene Park" ? OK, I'm dreaming...
