A 76 million-year-old dinosaur skeleton will be auctioned in New York City

A T. rex relative's fossilised skeleton that lived around 76 million years ago will be sold at auction in New York this month, Sotheby's announced on Tuesday.

According to the auction house, the Gorgosaurus skeleton will be the centrepiece of Sotheby's natural history auction on July 28.

It existed 10 million years before its close relative, the Tyrannosaurus rex.

According to Sotheby's, the specimen being sold was found in the Judith River Formation not far from Havre, Montana, in 2018.

 It is 22 (6.7 metres) feet long and over 10 feet (3 metres) tall.

According to the auction company, this is the sole specimen of the Gorgosaurus skeleton 

that is available for private ownership because all of the other ones are in museum collections.

Sotheby's global head of science and popular culture Cassandra Hatton stated, "In my career, I have had the honour of handling and selling many outstanding and unique things

but few have the power to inspire amazement and grab imaginations quite like this incredible Gorgosaurus skeleton.
