World's largest, most complete dinosaur skull for sale in Hong Kong for $2.42m

Lung Wong also known as The Dragon King, is now on a private sale in Hong Kong. According to thedragonking.net, offers above US$1.8 million (S$2.4million) are invited.

A press statement by PR Newswire said that Lung Wong is a fossilized skull of a male Triceratops dinosaur that lived in the late Cretaceous period.

It is approximately 65 million-years-old and palaeontologists familiar with the fossil say that nothing comes close to its scale, size and quality since an unprepared Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil was acquired by an institution in 1997 for US$8.5 million.

The fossil is made of 95 per cent complete bone, is 2.8 metres long, 1.6 metres high, and 1.4 metres wide. The press statement added: "He (Lung Wong) is the largest most complete skull of any animal that has ever walked the Earth."
