Dinosaur up for auction in New York

NEW YORK (AP) — How much is a dinosaur skeleton worth? We’ll find out later this month when the fossilized skeleton of a T-rex relative goes up for bids in New York. Sotheby’s will be selling the skeleton of a Gorgosaurus, believed to have roamed the earth 76 million years ago — about 10 million years before Tyrannosaurus rex. The skeleton was found in 2018 in the Judith River Formation in Montana. It measures nearly 10 feet tall and 22 feet long.
