Wanna buy a fossil?

This 11-foot-tall relic of North America’s megafauna-filled past could be yours for around half a million dollars, if you manage to outbid all the other sloth-obsessed tycoons.

Sloths aren’t your thing? Then perhaps you’d prefer to spend $2.8 million on a set of two dinosaurs. Or $875,000 for a meteorite. Or $60,000 on a giant elephant bird egg.

More than 260 lots of fossils, minerals and other treasures, including the world’s largest shark jaw, will be up for bids in Dallas in one of the biggest natural history auctions ever. Heritage Auctions, which is holding the event, estimates the total worth of the items for sale at around $13 million. Learn more here.
