Buying power

Have some spare cash lying around and want to make an unusual investment? If you do, and you're successful in your bid you'll get to name your purchase. And what will you call your 65 million year old triceratops skeleton? It goes under the hammer in Paris at Christie's on Wednesday and is expected to fetch around half a million euros. (To find out the value in local currency, you can do a search on Google eg "australian dollars to euros".) A similar 7.5 meter long skeleton sold in 1997 - and was named Sue.
