So many to choose from......which do you think are the most interesting?

(Of course the results of this poll have absolutely no bearing on future articles I might write....honest).

Hi Phil

Before reading your articles and threads on fossils, I would have said "Aren't living cephs interesting enough?" Now I can't decide. I'll reread your article, and if I understand more, I'll try to answer the poll.

Hmmm........following the TONMO barometer.

Cretaceous squids are winning. Perhaps something on Tusoteuthis and Niobrarateuthis perhaps? You know this is probably the most difficult of the lot.....there is so little out there.

Ooops, that was a bit of an oversight on my part and I should have included them, chrono. I think at the time, it was over a year ago, I didn't think I could scrape up enough info to write an article on them as at the time I though there were only two forms known. Since then, I found details of a third and a few months ago knocked up the article you can see in the 'Fossils' section if you would like to take a look.

Silly me, yes it should have been there!

o....Phil made a mistake, Phil made mistake...(contiunes chanting like a idiot)

LOL, shouldn't have done that. :mrgreen: As to the fossil parts, I'm going to take a look now.
