You know what your living room could use? Something bold. Something that says "I appreciate the finer things, but I don't care about the rules of decorum."
Something with lots of teeth.
If you've got about a million dollars or so lying around (from a lucrative startup investment, maybe?) consider this: Heritage Auctions is currently offering up an actual dinosaur from the Tyrannosaurus family.
It's a fossilized skeleton, of course, but it's nearly complete (75 percent, to be exact) — so we're talking museum-quality shit here. It comes fully mounted, standing 8 ft. tall and 24 ft long.
This is an incredible, complete skeleton, painstakingly excavated and prepared, and mounted in a dramatic, forward-leaning running pose. The quality of preservation is superb, with wonderful bone texture and delightfully mottled grayish bone color. In striking contrast are those deadly teeth, long and frightfully robust, in a warm woody brown color, the fearsome, bristling mouth and monstrous jaws leaving one in no doubt as to how the creature came to rule its food chain.
The skeleton has a buy now price of $1,052,500 and the auction ends tomorrow night.
Who do you think will be the big winner? We're going with "Spoiled 12-Year-Old Son of Arabian Royalty," with "Billionaire Man-Child With Private Space Fleet" coming in a close second.
