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.
... it was video, in a sense, but as the Right Honourably, Regal-Footed Sir Dr Ummmm..... points out, it's all about frames per second.
Remember, this was done on a shoe-string budget; things are SO about to change. This is when we sit down and chew our nails .... will it be that little yellow rectangle organisation, or will it be Discovery Channel? Nail chew, nail chew, nail chew .....
Anyone got more photos of that? All I've seen is low res turned into 2 inch video frames. I heard they photographed it for four hours one photo every 30 seconds. Even a slug would look fast if you tied that into a video stream and showed them even 1/4 second intervals. Let alone that thing was trying to free itself from the hooks of the jig. Are they holding back, or does someone have more pictures of it?
