Giant shark, dinosaur remains on sale in Paris

PARIS (Reuters Life!) - A collection of prehistoric remains, including the gaping jaws of a gigantic ancient shark and a brood of dinosaur babies with their mother, go on sale this week in an auction in Paris.

The reconstituted jawbone of the carcharodon megalodon, a monster that could reach as much as 13 meters (yards), is one of the highlights of the collection being sold by Christie's on Tuesday and which is being shown in a public display at the weekend.

The sale is the third of its kind organized by Christie's since 2007 and reflects growing interest in dinosaur remains spurred by the increasingly realistic special effects reconstructions in cinema.
