NEW YORK (AP) -- Two fossilized dinosaur skeletons found on a U.S. ranch in 2006 are going on the auction block in New York City. They're expected to bring between $7 million and $9 million.

The nearly complete skeletons are described as the "Dueling Dinosaurs." The sellers say the dinosaurs -- one a plant eater, the other a meat eater -- appear to be locked in mortal combat.

They're being sold as one lot at Bonhams auction house on Tuesday.

The sellers believe one may be a close relative of Tyrannosaurus rex. The other may be a new species similar to Triceratops.

They hope a philanthropist buys them and donates them to a public institution.
