If you liked "Jurassic Park," an auction to be held at Christie's International, Paris, is for you. The star of the April 16 sale is the skeleton of a Triceratops, the first specimen of this quality to appear at public sale since Tyrannosaurus Rex "Sue" sold for a record $8.4 million in 1997. Other offerings: the shin bone of a Brachiosaurus, the cranium of a saber-toothed tiger and the egg of a giant Aepyornis.
This is the second sale that Christie's France has dedicated to natural history. The first raised more than 1 million euros and concern among paleontologists who said that some of the objects would no longer be available for science.
