The overwhelming majority of this Ammonite fauna is preserved as limestone molds. But they can nevertheless make very pretty pets. There is a seemingly unendless amount of sites which can be visited since a great expanse of these layers is exposed from the north of Switzerland over the Swabian Alb up into the Franconian Alb in Bavaria. The forms and variations of this fauna are also manifold and the species and genera are being continually moved about or renamed, so I can't guarantee that my IDs are up-to-date.

My surname is the Cornish version of gorse. I won't say how it translates into German though.
