UPI News Service, 02/19/2013 

A Dutch man who spent 10 years putting together an entire mammoth skeleton said he is putting it up for auction with a starting bid of $367,895.

Bart Schenning of Gaarderen said the mammoth, assembled from 280 bones mostly dredged up by fishing nets, is being auctioned on website Marktplaats because he does not have room to keep the skeleton, DutchNews.nl reported Tuesday.

Schenning said he has had trouble selling the skeleton partially because most museums on the Netherlands already have a mammoth in their collection.
