Largest Triceratops Skeleton Ever Found Sells for $7.7 Million at Auction


The largest triceratops skeleton ever found was sold for a staggering $7.7 million to a private buyer at an auction held in Paris on Thursday. Dubbed 'Big John,' the ancient creature's remains measure an astounding 26 feet long, including a jaw-dropping eight-and-a-half foot-long skull which boasts a width of six-and-a-half feet. Since being discovered in South Dakota back in 2014, the skeleton has been something of a world traveler, first being sent to Italy to be reassembled by experts and then on to France a few months ago where it was put on display ahead of the highly anticipated auction.
