SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) -- It's a first for auctioneer Paul Colvin Junior. He says he's never sold a dinosaur before. Two dinosaur sculptures are going under the gavel by Block Auction in Arkansas. There's a 20-foot-long Tyrannosaurus rex and 10-foot-long triceratops. They've stood for decades on a hilltop along U.S. 412 near Sonora. The Internet auction ends December 23rd. But having the winning bid will only be half the battle. Block tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette the new owners have to move the dinosaurs. The metal and mortar T-rex weighs a ton and a-half.
