I wish Erich would excavate the fossils he has hidhen around the house somewhere. We dug up a bunch many years ago from our backyard in Ft Worth. Later, had them identified and dated by the Smithsonian. I don't remember what any of them are.
The naut had been used as infill for the clay floor when the barn was built !
Kevin, you're not wrong, went on a fossil hunt on my birthday, had picnic on the beach & after about 5 mins of the serious hunting starting, I was already two 10 inch ammonites down on her & it was 6-0 to her before I got started though I finished on a high note. Gonna go on my own if she keeps this up
Greg, I have no idea not so cut & dried as it used to be so it would be down to the observers perspective if you get my drift. Though personally I'd look crap in comparison, though I'm convinced it's very colour dependant
once you find a suitable looking barn, dig up the floor. Couldn't be easier.
cheers young Phil !
it does seem like they are, on ebay.fr there's been some nice Toarcien ammonites for sale which just happen to have come out of a quarry just down the road at La Jaudonniére, may have to visit it with a case of Stella for the guys !
