A couple of months ago, we reported on a unique specimen of Nanotyrannus, locked in combat with a Triceratops, which was going up for auction in New York.
Tomorrow, the auction is taking place! Will the specimen be bought by a public museum, or will it disappear into a private collection? Dr Phil Manning, who first alerted us to the upcoming sale, is in New York to follow its progress – follow him on his blog.
Fingers crossed we’ll all have a chance to see the fossils in the future. As we said in September – if anyone happens to have around $9 million kicking about, get yourself down to Bonhams in New York – the palaeontologists of the world will thank you for it!
