New York: The fossilized skeleton of a relative of T. Rex, who roamed the globe about 76 million years ago, will be auctioned in New York this month, Sotheby’s announced Tuesday.

According to the auction house, the Gorgosaurus skeleton will focus on the Sotheby’s natural history auction on July 28th.

Gorgosaurus was the pinnacle carnivore that inhabited the western United States and Canada in the late Cretaceous. It existed 10 million years before its relative Tyrannosaurus Rex.

According to Sotheby’s, the specimens for sale were found in 2018 in the Judith River Formation near Havre, Montana. It is about 10 feet (3 meters) high and 22 (6.7 meters) long.

According to the auction house, all other known Gorgosaurus skeletons are included in the museum’s collection, making it the only privately available specimen.

“In my career, I had the privilege of dealing with and selling many exceptional and unique objects, but inspiring and capturing this incredible Gorgosaur skeleton-like imagination. Few people have the ability, “said Cassandra Hatton, Global Head of Science and Popular Culture in Sotheby’s.

Pre-sales quotes for Sotheby’s fossils range from $ 5 million to $ 8 million.
