Unformatted text preview: My Friday report is about a dinosaur nest that is up for auction in Los Angeles. The auction house Bonhams and Butterfields is the place where the dino nest will be auctioned off. The nest is extremely rare because it is very well- preserved. One thing that makes so valuable is that the fossilized eggs with embryos exposed are extremely well preserved. Some scientists, or at least one are against selling it and think it should remain in the museum it has been kept in, however the nest should fetch between $180,000 and $220,000 at the auction this upcoming Sunday. The nest was discovered in chinese province Guangdong in 1984 and eventually sold to an american collector in 2003.
