London, September 5 (ANI): A 66-million-year-old Tyrannosaurs Rex dinosaur is being put up for sale at an auction in Las Vegas.

The 170 fossilised bones dubbed 'Samson' was said to be the third most complete T. rex skeleton ever discovered.

According to San Francisco-based auctioneer Bonhams and Butterfields, it is expected to fetch more than three million pounds after bids will begin on October 3 at the Venetian hotel-casino, reports Sky News.

Tom Lindgren, a natural history specialist for Bonhams and Butterfields, said Samson is one of only 42 specimens found in the last 100 years with more than 10 per cent of the bones.

Lindgren added: "This represents the pinnacle of paleontology." (ANI)
