Artist's Description

All wolf and dog lovers can be proud to wear this designer t-shirt featuring the skull of Canis dirus, the famed Dire Wolf. Though most of this ancient wolf’s remains come from the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, specimens have been found throughout North America, a range much like it successor, the modern gray wolf, (Canis lupus). It was a contemporary and competitor of the Sabre-toothed cat, (Smilodon fatalis), and the American cave lion (Panthera leo atrox), hunting the giant herbivores of the Late Pleistocene Era, 125,000 to 10,000 years ago. Towards the end of its existence, it also shared the continent with early human settlers, following the last Ice Age. The design is also available on stickers, cards, pillows, tote bags, tablet cases, and as prints.
