If You've Ever Wanted to Own a Complete Dinosaur Skeleton, or Four, Now's Your Chance
|Heritage expects the Allosaurus and Stegosaurus skeletons will go for upwards of $3 million. But that's for the pair. A bargain.|
Here's how our old pal Noah Fleisher at Heritage describes some of the highlights of what he insists is an "unprecedented event":
The auction and exhibition includes an Allosaurus and a Stegosaurus collectively known as "The Fighting Pair," known as such due to their proximity to one another when they were discovered in the Dana Quarry in Wyoming (estimate: $2.8 million), a virtually complete Triceratops skeleton, more than 19 feet long (estimate: $700,000+), a complete duck-billed Maiasaurus (estimate: $450,000+) and the largest set of prehistoric shark jaws ever assembled, from the ferocious Megalodon (estimate: $700,000+), the largest predator that has ever existed, an impressive 11 feet across and almost nine-feet tall when fully assembled. The jaws were the life's work of diver Vito "Megalodon Man" Bertucci, who spent almost 20 years assembling them before passing away in October of 2004 while diving for Shark Teeth in South Carolina.Man, if only I had the room.
