The auction ended (timed out with no bid) and it got re-listed at a much lower price: 220167839707
As I said, I generally find EBay unresponsive to problematic auctions. There are a slew of bogus fossils and eygptian artifacts on EBay that end up selling for hundreds of dollars when their real world value is under $10. They even protect these crooks by blocking anyone's attempts to warn the bidders. Caveat Emptor prevails there. For the most part, except for small items, I use EBay to SELL not to BUY!
We saved these beautiful creature from a salvage diver who pulled him from the deep. We paid $450 to make sure this creature had a chance at survival.
We are very new to the Internet/Ebay situation and have only an interest in recouping some of our money and giving back a rare and beautiful creature to the marine community.
If you would be so kind as to provide us a "care sheet" of sorts, we would be more that happy to put it up our auction page.
Again, we are new to this Ebay situation and only put up this auction on advice from local marine enthusiasts. We are in NO WAY looking to exploit this creature. We just want to find it a home in capable hands.
We're doing are best :/
Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the message. Please message back after reading this.
of course, they only sell to research and educational institutions, but it's not clear that "fly by night nautilus dealers on ebay" should be justified in charging more than the NRCC's professionally validated animals.
