I'm allergic to chocolate so no choc eggs for me :boohoo: but a friend gave me an alternative egg!

Plus I picked up (in the museum shop and exchanged $$ for it!) this ammonite still showing nacre.

Lovely Orthoceras egg there Jean. If it hatches, please can we have the scoop here? I think the ammonite might well be a Cretaceous Desmoceras from Madagascar as I have one very similar, but please don't take my word for it.

(Allergic to chocolate? That's an appalling crime...)

According to the museum the ammonite is from Madagascar.

I will keep all posted on hatching of the egg, does anyone know the length of the gestation period?
