Please Go Halvsies With Me: 150-Million Year Old Fully Intact Diplodocus Dinosaur Skeleton For Sale

Seen here looking like it belongs in my garage, the giant-- "It belongs in a museum!" YOU SHUT YOUR FILTHY MOUTH, INDY. Seen here looking like it belongs in my garage, the giant Diplodocus skeleton that is going up for auction next month sits on display. The 55-foot long, 19-foot tall dinosaur is nicknamed Misty (presumably after Dr. Grant's favorite stripper), and expected to fetch as much as £600,000 (~$972,000), although I'm willing to spend much, much more. Just saying, when you own an actual dinosaur skeleton and have it on display in the foyer of your mansion -- that's when you know you've really made it. Maybe as a multi-millionaire playboy, but probably as a supervillain. *stroking cat* MWAHAHAHAHAHA! "That's a raccoon." I was afraid of that. Never buy a pet from a fireworks stand.

Hit the jump for a closeup of a lady rubbings its tummy.

Thanks to Vladeon and Bria, who both threatened to outbid me but will strangely find themselves too sick to get out of bed the day of the auction.

There are Comments.
  • install a fleshlight to the rear of the beast and GW would never leave the museum

    That's a cast. Not the skeleton. The actual rock would be unmountable. It's just way too heavy. It looks like they are selling the actual fossils not the cast so the buyer will get several transport trucks full of rocks.

    I work in the industry, and we routinely mount real fossil into full sized dinos. Fossil is heavy, but easily done by professionals. For more info on mounting fossils look up Research Casting International.

    ~wave~ Hey!
    I don't have to look it up.
    I worked at RCI in the Oakville and Beamsville days. :)
    The weight on the at neck would be insane.
