5 of the most expensive animals ever

Updated on March 2, 2013

Big Splash (Tibetan mastiff)

Not much is known about this dog other than the fact it is a red Tibetan Mastiff that was sold to a chinese oil baron for a little over $1.5 million. Tibetan Mastiffs are considered great guard dogs and are usually fairly pricey for a dog but this is definately a whole new level


Missy (cow)

Missy sold for $1.2 million at an auction in Toronto. She was put up for auction by dairy cow breeders whose cows almost always sell for a high price. But Missy sold for $800,000 more than their previous highest selling cow.


Deveronvale Perfection (sheep)

This sheep was sold at a sale in scotland in 2009 for $376,691. The buyer reagards the sheep as the best he has ever seen and for that much money I would certainly hope it is.


754 pound blue fin tuna

A team of sushi vendors from Hong Kong and Tokyo bought the fish for $396,000 at a Tokyo fish market


The green monkey (horse)

The green monkey is a thoroughbred racehorse who was sold at an auction for $16,000,000. The horse was retired two years later when it had limited success in it's racing career. It is now rented out as a breeding horse for $5,000

      Never would have guessed a cow would be sold for that much.
