Dinosaur skeleton

The skeleton of a 150-million-year-old dinosaur sold for more than $2.36 million in Paris in June. Measuring 2.6 meters (8.5 feet) tall and almost 9 meters (30 feet) long, the fossil closely resembles an Allosaurus, though scientists weren’t able to confirm the exact species of the dinosaur. The artifact was in reportedly good condition, with around 70% of the skeleton remaining intact.
