Feb. 7 (UPI) -- An eBay auction for a Cheeto "that looks like Harambe the gorilla" ended with a winning bid of nearly $100,000.

The posting, by Burbank, Calif., based user valuestampsinc, said the "one of a kind" item was found inside a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

The listing reads:

"I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla.

This item is one of a kind!

It measures up to about 1 1/2 inches in length.

This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included. This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!"

Bidding on the item ended Tuesday morning with a high bid of $99,900, but it was unclear whether the buyer -- who has 88 percent positive feedback -- will actually shell out the sum for the gorilla-shaped snack food.
