But how significantly is a teenage fossil worth?
Paleontologists will uncover out Wednesday as an exceptionally uncommon juvenile allosaurus goes beneath the hammer.
The 9ft-prolonged carnivore found in Wyoming and nicknamed “Young Al” is only the 2nd juvenile allosaurus specimen to be identified.
“This is a extremely fascinating but nerve-wracking time for us,” Rupert Werff, director at auctioneers Summers Place, told CNN.
“The first juvenile allosaurus was just a few of limb bones and a few ribs, so this is by significantly the most intact specimen.”

The younger dino was identified by a specialist fossil hunter, who asked to stay anonymous, in the Morrisson Development, a abundant fossil bearing region.
But in spite of the hefty value tag, the anonymous operator is not likely to earnings from the excavation.
Werff said: “Dinosaur excavation is a rather costly enterprise. The excavation took a big crew a few a long time to full.”
“Fossil searching is not some thing you should to do if you want to make a income.”
Other objects on sale at the auction house in Sussex, southern, England, contain an huge elephant hen egg, a wooly mammoth skull and a stegosaurus tail spike.
