Phil said:I would love to start up a discussion on this bizarre Cambrian predator but as the thing was probably an arthropod and most certainly not a cephalopod I can't really do it here.
Go for it Phil!!! I'm sure that the live animal had an extensive velum-like membrane that is actually responsible for secreting the ammonite shell, and it is this beast that actually scurried along inside that last chamber Either that or it was parasitic on ammonites .... I'm sure there's a link there somewhere, and I'm sure it's not that tenuous.
Then I can start up a thread about boats, nets and how to catch squid, and trucks to tow them with that have loud macho horns and big V8 engines
....just call it an early mid-life (or ?end of .... as we know it) crisis.....
