Stan the T-rex goes up for auction

NEW YORK (AP) — He weighed at least seven tonnes and had eyes the size of baseballs. His bite could have crushed a car. He bore scars from fierce prehistoric battles.

All this could be yours for as much as USD8 million. The legend of the Tyrannosaurus rex (T-rex) nicknamed Stan is getting fresh life thanks to Christie’s.

The auction house put his bones on display through floor-to-ceiling windows at its midtown Manhattan gallery in advance of putting them up for auction.
