Canadian law, in most, if not all provinces, insists that all street bicycles must be fitted with horns...

Might be the right bike for up on "the white side of the map" for when the bears stop hibernating.

Not a bicycle, but there was a news story today about a fragmentary juvenile tyrannosaurus fossil being offered on eBay for $3M and how this prompted a STRONGLY WORDED LETTER from academia.

Three was someone recently complaining about being horned.

It must be a museum shutting down, or badly strapped for cash. I wonder how much the museums actually pay for such artifacts. They may well not be cheap.

That T-Rex is a very incomplete skeleton (with a plastic reconstructed head/neck).

The seller also has a far more complete Triceratops for much less, I think.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/AUTHENTIC-T...R/302991633409

The problem may be that the T-Rex was a fairly young specimen, and thus must be relatively rare.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...sale-EBAY.html



So, it was "found" on private land and excavated by a private individual. But, loaned to the University of Kansas who restored and prepped it for display, then taken back for sale. A bit fishy there.

At issue is that it may not be a juvenile, but rather a mini.

Every time someone quotes that picture, my first thought is what a collision hazard that is.
