T-Rex for sale online

More expensive than Barney

No, it's not Barney. A complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletion is being auctioned online at Lycoshop with a reserve price of $5.8 million. Bidding opened yesterday, but so far there have been no serious offers. However, there have been plenty of hoax bids, according newswire PA. Lycoshop is selling the skeleton with taking e-auctions to their extreme. Bids will be taken until 10 February. The "perfect" fossil was uncovered on 6 October 1992 by paleontologists Alan & Robert Detrich, who named Mr.Z-Rex after the owners of the land. Kansas-based Deitrich fossils currently own the dinosaur. The 65 million year-old fossil could bring in $40 million in annual revenue to museums which are thought to be the likely bidders.
