How to ruin your wrist extracting an ammonite

Recommended Posts

Creek - Don

Same here. Had plenty of twisted ankles and sore wrist while extracting ammos.    I'm thinking about buying a battery powered portable hammer drill in the future. That will save you lots of labor and time.

This is true. I have a friend who uses one sometimes, but you're actually not allowed to use them here.

Thanks. It's a Choffatia by the looks of it, although I still have problems distinguishing between that genus and Homeoplanulites.

That was definitely hard but after all physical training strengthens the body and mind. Better than lying on the couch

One side seems to be a bit eaten away, but I think it should still be a good one.

The best way to treat tired tendons is to enrich your diet with zink (almonds) and do a lot of stretching after workout. 

First picture looked very promising. Seeing it, I can feel your rush and desire to remove it in one piece. That excitement makes us forget pain and everything. 

Rest well!

Nice !  I would have thought the bigger one would be better but i still like the look of it. I just prepped a similar one which i thought wasn’t any good which turned out pretty well. I guess you never know until you start prepping these...

The smaller ones are really nice !

I had also been hoping for more, but was already braced for the reality. I was actually quite surprised to have found a(n almost) complete one in that strongly mineralized and turbitized concretionary lager.

Klein is almost always fein in the herveyi zone.
