I understand they're very rare to find in that sort of condition and level of completeness. 

Congratulations on a super find and your win! :yay-smiley-1:

Figures the winner would be the one fossil that needed the least amount of prep work.

Just pick it up and enter it, that's just how you roll!

Thanks for all the comments and votes! It only took me 25 years to find this guy. I hope the next one comes along a little sooner ;). I just recently caught the "fossil bug" again, after a few years of doing other things, and the warm welcome I have received here on TFF is really appreciated! 

 

Thanks again! :trilo:
