What I wouldnt give for 550 jpg's of a live ammonoid, almost as good as soft tissue preservation. Looking at the photos as a flip show probably shows a little more animation than was actually present. All in all they do show a live animal with pics as good as those the Mars rovers are sending back, from a place almost as distant.
