including the only one in the world with the eye intact

Thanks for sharing. The heteromorph ammonites are of particular interest to me. But the above assertion is completely false, since a lot of British and German Ichthyosaurs display the sclerotic rings in the eyes. Or do you mean that the organic substance of the eye itself is preserved? That would be a one in a million find. I was going by the one in the second photo.

Hi there, sorry that's what they told me at the museum so I took it at face value. I'll see if I have any more pics of the heteromorphs for you

I also would love to see more photos, especially of the ammonites :wub: :wub: :wub: and any other invertebrates if they are on display.  The vertebrates are cool too of course :wub:.  Is it possible/legal to collect such fossils as a private individual in Columbia?

Hi Don, I've got some more here for you! It is legal, the only restriction here is that they can't be sold as they are very keen on preserving their history here.

Fossil Forum field trip to Colombia!  I hear the birdwatching is great too (that is what my Costa Rican bird guide told me).  

 

I had the same reaction as Ludwigia about the ichthyosaur eye.

Haha I'd be happy to arrange such a trip! 

 

Yes a great variety of birds here, especially in the Amazonas region. If you ever get the chance, fly to Leticia and then you will be in the heart of the undisturbed Amazon.
