Will if I can - not sure when we'll next be down, but we do make it occasionally.

Hey Tintenfisch. Im going to be in NZ around the first of November. By any chance do you do any fossil hunting? By any chance can we meet up and do a bit of hunting? Crossing my fingers.

When you go, be sure to stop off at Hawkes Bay and get a photo of this Mammoth Ammonite. :wink:

a mammoth ammonite which will be seen by the public for the first time. Several were found in Hawke's Bay


Now, WHY didn't Hamish Campbell or James Crampton tell me about this?? I know both of them... how do I ask them politely?

BTW, the dreaded baa-baa is on the decline in NZ. Unfortunately dairy products have become a valued export, and cattle are now polluting the freshwater ecosystem and turning paddocks into mires.
