Just in case you happen to be
Looking back at the pages of natural history, this 24-foot animal is known to have walked the Central parts of Asia, during its existence 80 million years ago from today’s time. With the rarity that the Tyrannosaurus and its fossilized remains are found, it has always managed to garner immense amongst the collectors and enthusiasts of natural history artifacts. Back in 1997, one of these sold for over $8 million, which speaks of the immense value and demand. This time around, one can hope for something just as big, because rarely does something of this age come in a mounted format with full preparations for display.
Just in case one would like to know how strongly the demand for such artifacts remains in today’s times, one could definitely take a look at the IM Chait’s Natural History auction which had a Tyrannosaurus skull amongst its cherished collectibles. Also a few years back, we had talked about another tyrannosaurus skull which went on sale at Bonhams Natural History auction, and hopefully managed to garner attention.
