Want to own a 76 million-year-old T. Rex skeleton? Of course, you do!
I would put in a bid for this incredible fossil - but I don't think I have the room in my house - that and the fact that my $2-$3 thousand dollar bid wouldn't even purchase me a piece of its toenail.
But assuming that you had the space, and the means, how much would you be willing to pay?
According to the New York Post, this "Gorgosaurus" skeleton will highlight Sotheby’s natural history auction on July 28, and experts believe it will fetch many millions of dollars.
