Mammoth sale

A beautiful, nearly complete woolly mammoth skeleton was sold today in Paris.
The skeleton of a 15,000-year-old Siberian mammoth was snapped up at auction in Paris on Monday for over one-and-a-half times the estimated price.

Dubbed "The President", the 3.8-metre-high tusked mammoth was sold for 260,000 euros ($352,331) to an unknown bidder by Christie's in Paris, compared to a 150,000-180,000 euros guide price.

I was planning on bidding but realized I didn't have anywhere to put it.
