A rare dinosaur skeleton is going up for auction in November and could sell for up to $750,000.
The skeleton on the auction block belonged to a juvenile Allosaurus, and was found in a Wyoming quarry.
The chances of another juvenile “ever appearing on the market are very rare,” according to Rupert van der Werff, director at Summers Place Auctions, where the skeleton will go up for sale.
“We haven’t been able to find any records of another predatory dinosaur being sold in the U.K.,” van der Werff told USA TODAY Network.
The Allosaurus, a distant relative of the Tyrannosaurs Rex, was one of the largest predatory dinosaurs of its time and could reach up to 28 feet, according to a statement from the auction house. Van der Werff said full-grown Allosaurus skeletons have gone for just under $2 million at auction.
