You're a lucky duck, I'd say. Did you prep it yourself?

  Holy Cow!!  Very nice!  Im wondering what the size of that thing is?   and I myself would have loved to prep that out!   Hope you have a wall heavy duty enough to hang it on.  :)

  one more thing.  How many pieces did that come out in?

This is wonderful. Can we get the story behind the find? 

And more pictures??

Yes, yes! More photos, please!

 

Any photos of it in situ or how it looked before that fabulous prep would be wonderful. We can only dream of such finds here in South Florida. Having just finished reading a book on Mary Anning, I'd love to hear the story of that find.

 

 

Cheers.

Wow!!!! That is the most awesome personal find I think I’ve seen on here!! Outstanding. 

More of a response than you expected. I’m surprised more didn’t take note. I certainly missed it at the time of the post. 

Thats a find worthy of starting a fossil addiction or obsession. It only took one ammonite to get me hooked.

 

When did you find it?

I see what you did there :P whether it was intentional or not

 

That's a dream find right there! I probably walked past it at some point too. Is something as complete as this legal to keep?
