And what kind of person, exactly, buys a 130 million-year-old pile of crap?
A pile of dinosaur dung 130 million years old sold at a New York auction Wednesday for nearly $1,000.
The prehistoric deposit fetched $960, said a spokeswoman for Bonhams New York. Its pre-auction estimate was $450.
The fossilized dung is from the Jurassic era, the auction house said. It looks like a rock on the outside and a colorful mineral inside.
Ah, a poo professional. And just think, 130 million years from now, someone will dig up the stuff he works on and sell it for hundreds of quatloos, or whatever currency they'll be using at that point.
The buyer was Steve Tsengas of Fairport Harbor, Ohio. The 71-year-old owns OurPets, a company that sells products to treat dog and cat waste.
