   Perhaps piecemeal, yes, but the price tag on the whole thing limits the
number of potential buyers.

   Hell, if I had the millionz to throw away, I'd buy it and have it studied
because it WOULD be worthless to me without proper scientific study.  Might
even donate it to a museum, after having casts made of it.  Guess that makes
me rare in the "anti-science" crowd of people with "odd political agendas"
dead set on completely destroying the world of paleontology as we know it.....
