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.

Incredible the size of the largest Cave Bear Skull it is huge, I did not expect such a huge skull I expected that the largest ones were a little over 50 cm long.

Also, this species of Cave bear (Ursus ingressus) was more carnivorous and aggressive than the previous one (Ursus spelaeus) we known.

Maybe this could be the longest skull for the entire bear family, which exceeded that of Arctotherium angustidens.

Post # 134 with information of prehistoricfauna.com says that the dimensions of Ursus ingressus are length - 2,3 m, height - 125 сm, weight - 100-300 kg.

I think those dimensions are wrong if you compare the dimensions with such a huge Skull 57,14 cm long, it was a huge Bear for sure at least 900 kg. 

It would be great to know its estimated size and weight.

I think it is the huge variety of the size for this Cave bear species.

The largest specimen was likely over a ton, and I would like to know the largest skull for Arctotherium angustidens.

The skull of the Cave bear is much more vaulted.
