Those are very nice. Ammonites are one of my top 3 favorite fossils. That’s probably because I think they’re one of the coolest fossils I could find when I first started collecting. In fact ammonites are what got me hooked on fossil collecting. I was hiking down a creek in the summer of 1989 and found one about 14 inches across in the creek. I picked it up and carried it a ways, but it was too heavy and the creek was too difficult to keep my balance in while carrying it. So I had to put it down and leave it behind. One of the guys I was with went back later and got it and kept it for himself. Argh! He was 6’5” and it was no sweat for him to carry.

 

Does Alabama have any ammonites?

Where are the American ammonites? :blink:

Hi @KimTexan thanks for the kind words. Yes me too Ammonites are in my top 3 along with my new obsession corals and  of course trilobites. I don’t know if Alabama has any Ammonites . As for where are the American Ammonites. I can only think that you old 6’5” boyfriend may have them all by now .:)

We do have a number of collectors in the US who collect ammonites. Among one of the very best would be @PFOOLEY

 

Here is a link to his albums showing some excellent quality specimens: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/profile/11220-pfooley/&tab=node_gallery_gallery

That's why one should always carry an empty backpack with them in the field. Even if you don't find anything, an empty one doesn't weigh anything to carry.

That seems a bit rude, I would never take a fossil I knew some one left and once I found out I'd certainly give it back. 'Tis one of the unspoken laws of fossil Hunting.
