I think a Tyrannosaurus skeleton would look lovely in my entrance hall

I'd need to get a bigger house though. And never mind that the Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton is likely to fetch between $2 000 000 and $8 000 000. I mean that's a lot to pay for something you can't even play fetch with it like in Night at the Museum.

One of the three most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons is set to go under auction at the Venetian Casino in Las Vegas on 3 October. Up for auction will be various other fossils, including a duck-billed dinosaur and a ceratopsian (same family as Triceratops).

Since Rexxy is out of my price range, I might just have to settle for the Woolly Mammoth (going for $150 000 - $200 000). I'd still need to get a bigger house though.

In other news relating to bones, a new discovery has been made regarding human evolution and the spread of humans from Africa. While new discoveries are always exciting, I'm a bit disappointed since I'm rather in love with the Out of Africa theory and with South Africa being the Cradle of Humankind.

And speaking of evolution, a movie about Charles Darwin is set for release and it seems Americans have not taken too well to it.
