Summers Place Dodo Skeleton

Climate scientists agree that we’re going to be seeing a lot more extinct species in the next few years. Now, you have an opportunity to pay tribute to all past and future wiped-out animals through the most iconic of them all: The dodo bird. It’s the Summers Place Dodo Skeleton, a composite piece hitting the auction block soon.

The Summers Place Dodo Skeleton is a composite skeleton resulting from 40 years of collecting its individual component parts—or “bones,” as they are known in the scientific community. And as you might expect, given that impressive history, Summers Place Auctions expects this bird to go for quite a high premium, with a starting bid of $375,000.

If that doesn’t sound dodo to you, you can get more information on the Summers Place Dodo Skeleton and more interesting items being auctioned off by Summers Place Auctions at the auction house’s official site right here.
