    Stopping by New York any time soon? You wouldn't mind picking me up some messages would you?
    A unique auction featuring a Woolly Rhinoceros skeleton, a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth, and a Stegadon skull will be held Thursday at Bonham's Natural History sale in New York. And there's a lot more, so let's take a look.

    The Woolly Rhinoceros skeleton, which would have roamed the Earth back in the Ice Age, is fully mounted and is estimated to sell for between 70,000 and 90,000 US dollars.

    Measuring 12-feet in length, the Xiphantinus audax, one of the largest bony fish that existed during the Cretaceous Period, is estimated at 150,00 to 200,000 dollars.

    Dinosaur lots to be offered include a large leg bone from a Brachiosaurus, and an impressive Tyrannosaurus rex tooth. The tooth, thought to have been swallowed by another dinosaur is estimated to sell for between 12,000 to 15,000 dollars.
