Just got home from showing Architeuthoceras and a friend of his through the collections (mostly cephs of course) at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Scienc. They got to see quite a bit, such as the time allowed, and as I understand, plan to return.

I'm sure you'll be hearing more, along with pictures.

If anyone else plans on stopping by, drop me a note and I'll make arrangements.

cheers to all

the Nauti-guy

Wow, :notworth:, I would love to spend a week (or month or so...) drooling over those fossils. I would like a closer look at the cross section of the Endocerid endocone.
