By: Charlotte PammentThe 55ft (17m) specimen of the long-necked Diplodocus longus went under the hammer at Summers Place Auctions in Billingshurst, West Sussex. The sale of the female skeleton, 19ft (6m) tall and nicknamed "Misty", was the first UK auction of a large dinosaur skeleton, according to experts. It was found almost completely intact in 2009 by the sons of renowned palaeontologist Raimund Albersdoerfer near a quarry in Wyoming in the United States.
