Baby t-rex on sale on Ebay for nearly 3 million

News


Your next pet could be a prehistoric one.

A fossil hunter is selling a baby t-rex on eBay for nearly three million dollars.

The user claims the 68-million-year-old skeleton is “most likely the only baby t-rex in the world”.

The online auction has sparked comments amongst paleontologists who argue the hefty price tag is inflating the cost of other valuable fossils.

Experts now condemning fossil trade saying only replicas of bones should be sold, not the fossils themselves.

While the auction is still live, many believe the specimen might not sell due to its incomplete and shattered parts.
