Strange request I know. I'd be very interested in purchasing one or several preserved chambered Nautilus specimens (with shells), if anyone had any to offer.

Thanks

:wink: Hmm, this is a long shot, but if a fisherman in the area catches one you could preserve it yourself, what's it for, by the by?





P.S. Love the new Avatar, what's it supposed to be? It looks like a bloated Grimpitoteuthis *sp*?

Well I don't think it strange!


Have you tried the Carolina Biological Supply Company? They sell preserved specimens and may have something. We got some stuff from the for the programmes here.
