Dodo returns -  first near complete skeleton to come up for auction could be yours for...£500,000.<br />
<br />
An incredibly rare skeleton of the dodo - an icon of extinction - that has been painstakingly assembled after one man spent 40 years collecting the bones is to be sold at auction for the first time.<br />
<br />
The 350-year-old bones make up one of the most complete skeletons in the world, at 95 per cent complete, and could fetch half a million pounds.<br />
<br />
The extinct bird will be sold by Summers Place Auctions in Billingshurst, West Sussex, who say it is a bit of an unknown entity because it is such a rare item, on November 22.
