Here is the newest piece I have just added to my collection. It is a Xiphactinus audax from the Kansas Chalks. I have been walking around singing fish heads all weekend long, even if this one is not to roly or poly. I think I might have been driving my wife a bit nuts.

Nice stuff! Did you collect this yourself? I would love to find a 'fish head, fish head' and 'eat them up, yum!'

Now that is just freaking A-MA-ZING!
Looking forward to meeting my fellow Singaporean collectors! Do PM me if you are a Singaporean, or an overseas fossil-collector coming here for a holiday!

Dan,

I hate to break it to you, but you don't have a wife!

With us single guys it's a little different.

It is our duty to drive ALL women nuts!

I know I am doing my part! I blew off a date with a beautiful woman on Saturday night so I would be able to get enough rest for Sunday's fossil hunt!
A man must have his priorities!


:Meg Dance:

By the way, that is a grogeous Xfish skull. Did you find it or buy it?

Those Xiphactinus always look angry. :)
