Auction Block: Jurassic Dinosaur Fossil

Mar 27, 2018

Category: Living

Feel like that old conversation piece you have in the front room just isn’t quite getting the response it used to? This Allosaurus Skeleton going up for sale at the French auction house Aguttes may be just what you need.

The remains of this 153-million year-old monster, dubbed the ’T-Rex of the Jurassic Period’, were first discovered five years ago in Wyoming. That same year, a team of archeologists recovered just about 70-percent of the beast – including its 3-foot-long skull, full set of teeth, and razor sharp claws. The find is a rare one, especially considering how much of the skeleton was recovered and the good condition it is in. Bidders are likely going to need to make a lot of room in their homes for this thing; from the tip of the skull to the end of the tail, the dinosaur measures at 28 feet in length, and about 8 feet tall. Also, we’re pretty sure you become a defacto Bond villain as soon as you buy it.

Purchase: $1.5 Million +
