Sold for £1000 - This huge fossilized tree fern weighs nearly 10 stone and comes from the Jurassic period nearly 180 million years ago.<br />
<br />
Auctioneer Rupert van der Werff is planning a Jurassic sized sale of 180 million year old bones.<br />
<br />
The contents of a closed down natural history museum are being auctioned off in a once-in-a-180 million year lifetime sale today.<br />
<br />
The collection of old dinosaur bones and fossils had been displayed for years at the internationally-acclaimed Emmen Zoo in Holland.<br />
<br />
The highlight of the sale to be held in West Sussex is the complete skeleton of a 25ft long harpocrasaurus or a duck-billed dinosaur which dates back to 75 million years ago.
