Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

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 Millionaire.com 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. Find out more about this unusual auction and follow the bids here. ®
