Last week I was in Vienna, and visited the Museum of Natural History. Besides many many other highly interesting things, there were also some really interesting fossils and some nice reconstructions of cephalopods, which could be interesting for some of you, so I wanted to post some photos I made.

Now something for Aptychus-fans. This wonderful and highly interesting ammonite (probably from Solnhofen) has not only a preserved aptychus, but also preserverd contents of its stomach, which consists of relics of some kind of crustaceen and mini-aptychi of other ammonites (second picture).
