    尽管蒙古官员尽了最大的努力进行阻止,这具霸王龙类恐龙骨架(特暴龙Tarbosaurus bataar/Tyrannosaurus bataar)骨架仍然于纽约被拍卖了。该化石骨架属于一个接近完整的亚成体标本,卖出金额总计1,052,500美元,比拍卖前的估计略多。购买者的身份没有公开,但可以认定是个人购买。
    这具恐龙化石的销售引起了极大的争议,该标本发现自蒙古戈壁沙漠,从原产地采集并非法销售到国外长达50年。尽管得克萨斯州法院已经下达了禁令,但拍卖活动仍然在抗议声中继续进行。
    拍卖会于周日举行,蒙古国总统Elbegdorj Tsakhia先生对此事表示强烈抗议。他指出,法律规定将出土于蒙古戈壁沙漠的化石从蒙古出口的国外的行为是非法的。Everything Dinosaur小组的团队成员也签署了一份请愿书,试图阻止销售,但这些举动似乎都无法影响拍卖的进行。拍卖行(Heritage Auctions,总部设在纽约)的法律顾问则指出拍卖行为没有除非任何美国的法律,但在它被美国法院批准和下达禁令之前律师也没有确认其销售。
    Everything Dinosaur的发言人说:“当看到化石标本被拍卖的事情发生时我们总是感到一种失落感。大多数公共机构往往屈服于商业利益,而个人购买这种罕见的化石标本的行为不仅使得公众无法观赏到这些标本,同时也使得科学家们失去了对其进行研究的机会。”

原文:Tarbosaurus bataar sold for £630,000 Despite Restraining Order

The Tyrannosaurid skeleton, representing a animal known as Tarbosaurus bataar (also known as Tyrannosaurus bataar) has been sold at an auction in New York despite the best efforts of Mongolian officials to prevent the sale.  The mounted skeleton, representing a nearly complete, sub-adult specimen was sold for the sum of $1,o52,500 USD, a little more than the pre-auction estimate.  The identity of the purchaser is not being publicised but it is believed to be a private individual.

The sale of the fossil material has attracted a great deal of controversy, as the specimen is believed to have been collected in the Gobi desert (Mongolia), a part of the world where the export and sale of such fossil material has been illegal for fifty years or so.  A restraining order was organised through a Texas court, but despite protests from the judge concerned the auction went ahead.

The auction took place on Sunday, despite the protests from the Mongolian president.  Elbegdorj Tsakhia stated that the skeleton, unearthed in the Gobi Desert, came from Mongolia and that exporting fossils found in the country is illegal.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur signed a petition to try to prevent the sale, but it looks like the specimen sale will now go ahead.  Legal advisers for the auction house – Heritage Auctions, based in New York, stated that the sale did not break any U.S. laws, but the lawyers will not confirm the sale until it has been approved by a U.S. court and the matter regarding the restraining order is dealt with.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We always feel a sense of loss when we see such fossil material auctioned off.  Most public bodies are not able to compete with wealthy, private individuals and the sale of such rare fossils deprives the public from viewing these specimens as well as preventing scientists from being able to study them in most cases.”

The sale of this particular meat-eating dinosaur is controversial because doubts have been raised as to how this specimen could have left Mongolia when such activities have been banned for the best part of half a century.   The auction house will make about 15% commission on the sale, and the seller will of course pocket the balance remaining. With a sale value in excess of £630,000, there are large sums of money involved.

应该立法规定,私人收藏的必需定期对公众展出、研究。当然,可以适当收费。

这个保存和修复得真好。可惜在商业世界里面,资本为王。退而求其次,能妥善保管传世,也算功德一件。其实离开了原始发掘地,研究价值多少打些折扣。
