Someone is trying to sell the t-Rex on eBay. Paleontologists contend

Experienced users of eBay have noticed a one of a kind item for auction: a fossil of a baby Tyrannosaurus Rex, who died about 68 million years ago, at a price of only 2,95 million dollars.

Where to buy dinosaur?

Lot, which at the time of writing this note was still hanging on eBay, looks like someone is trying to sell your old, wrecked car:

“This is most likely an only CHILD “t-Rex” in the WORLD! His 7-FOOT body and a 50 cm SKULL with lots of teeth! This Rex was a very dangerous butcher. It is a RARE opportunity to see the baby REX at all, because if they are not growing up quickly, they would not be able to catch the prey would have died. Histology shows that this pattern about 4 years. Reconstruction of the skull was made curator of vertebrate paleontology (Museum of natural history in Florida).

Many bones we have yet to determine, but every day more and more find their mark.”

Society of vertebrate paleontology has issued a statement expressing disappointment that the fossil will be sold before he can properly study the experts in this field.

“Selling should be only casts and other copies of vertebrate fossils, not the fossils. Scientifically important fossils, such as young Tyrannosaurus, are the key to our collective natural heritage and merit the public trust”, reads the statement. “The fact that these fossils testify to the deep past of the Earth, makes them valuable, in contrast to art objects or other commodities, whose value comes from human creativity and skill.”
