Rupert van Der Werff, director of Summers Place Auctions, who are selling the Mammoth, said that the buyer could be a private individual or a museum and this fabulous skeleton is in pretty good condition, and that nearly complete skeletons are pretty rare.

The skeleton, which is thought to be an old male who would have weighed over six tonnes when it was alive, will be put for sale on 26th November.
