Dueling Dinos Go On The Auction Block

NEW YORK (November 15, 2013) Two fossilized dinosaur skeletons found in 2006 on a Montana ranch are going on the auction block next week in New York City and they could fetch between $7 million and $9 million.

The "Montana Dueling Dinosaurs,” one a plant eater, the other a meat eater, appear to be locked in mortal combat.

They're being sold as one lot Tuesday at Bonhams auction house.

The skeletons were discovered by a fossil hunter on a neighbor's ranch in an area where dinosaurs once roamed.

The sellers believe one may be a close relative of Tyrannosaurus rex while the other may be a new species similar to Triceratops.

They hope a philanthropist buys them and donates them to a public institution.
