Walrus penis sells for $8,000 at auction

Why he became extinct? All the female walruses ran when they saw that thing! A fossilized penis bone from an extinct walrus went for a whopping $8,000 at a Beverly Hills auction Sunday. The 4 1/2-foot-long bone was sold to the company that runs the Ripley's Believe It or Not museums. Discovered in Siberia, the fossilized penis bone is from a species of walrus that went extinct 12,000 years ago. The piece curves to a point and is covered with weathered skin and dry muscle tissue.
