Jurassic Hark

Yes, You Can Take Home A Dinosaur

The skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex is expected to sell for a staggering £4.8 million when it is auctioned next month. The 66-million-year-old female dinosaur, nicknamed Samson, is 15 feet tall, 40 feet long and is one of the largest ever discovered.

Getting out my checkbook! That'll be perfect for that corner of my living room that's been needing a little sumthin.

I'd have it in the hall if it was a bit smaller & more importantly, a bit cheaper!

Wow - I could buy a dinosaur? Well, maybe "I" couldn't... I don't think "I" could come up with that kind of money, but still...
Neat!
