A: ALL SQUIDS HAVE BEAKS...IT WAS FOUND BY A DIVER IN SOUTH CAROLINA
Q: I am really interested in this specimen. I am wondering how you identified it as a squid beak. They are quite rare. Thank you, Jennifer
A: YES THEY ARE EXTREMELY RARE AND EXTREMELY VALUABLE....VITO HAD THEM IDENTIFIED WHEN HE WAS ALIVE..
Yeah, it was me... I was going to bid myself but I decided it would be hard to convince my husband... "You spent $80 on that?!?" A pretty ammonite would be one thing, but a triangular piece of black rock is another (even though I know it would be an awesome addition to my cephalopod fossil collection).Originally posted by Phil
Oh, that was you Cuttlegirl?
Hmm....well, I'm not so sure that it was a scam. Looking at the pictures closely there do seem to be features present that could be the pointed rostrum and wing-like lamellae. Here's a picture to show what I mean in comparison to an Archi beak. One has to imagine the two halves rotated 90 degrees though.DHyslop said:I'm glad neither of you lost your money. Looks like a grade-A scam to me.
