Dinosaur Dung Up For Grabs

A New York auction house is pricing an ancient artifact to move: a 130-million-year-old piece of dinosaur dung going for as low as $350.

Bonhams New York says the three-pound fossil looks like a rock
on the outside and a colorful mineral inside. A spokesman says the
specimen has lost any original odor.

Also up for sale is a 30,000-year-old woolly mammoth tusk,
expected to sell for up to $50,000. The auction house predicts the
skull and jaws of a 50,000-year-old giant beaver will sell for
about $20,000.

The priciest item up is a nearly 10 ton meteorite. It was
discovered in China 8 years ago, and could sell for more than 2
million dollars.

Bonhams is expecting a variety of bidders, from interior
decorators to celebrities.
