Apologies for the lack of fossil cephalopod news everyone. This isn't due to lack of trying to find it, there just doesn't seem to be much happening out there at the moment. As soon as something happens we'll be there.

In the meantime, it might be fun if we posted images or links to.....er....'dodgy' fossils for sale.

How about these ever so convincing dragonflies for example: :wink:

Right-oh and Yep, I'm convinced this is genuine too

Hey, I'll bet I could make those.

Well, they're really pretty....that might be a good enough reason. What are they made of, polymer clay?
