You can Name a New Species of Dinosaur after Yourself

Jurassic Park VII featuring the Shag-osaurus Rex and Trevordactyl.

You have the chance to name a new species of dinosaur with scientists’ latest discovery of an unknown dino previously thought to be and allosaur (terrible name).

The rare skeleton is going up for auction and the winning bidder gets to choose what it will be called. If you’re interested, the skeleton will go under the hammer at Auguttes auction house in Paris this June. Eric Genest of Auguttes says: ‘My estimate for this dinosaur is €1.2m to €1.8m. But this is only an estimate. The price for such a rare item can climb very fast because this is a still unknown dinosaur to which the buyer can give his name.’

What would you name the new species?
