Loved the rugged coast and awesome ammonite finds, Congrats! I guess you can't whack them with a hammer and get them out like the guy from Whitby?

Congratulations on checking another fossil off of your wishlist - that Mammites is already nice, but I'm sure it will be even more beautiful once prepped :wub::ammonite01:

An update on the prepped finds of this fieldtrip.

Not an ammonite this time, but a very well preserved echinoid.

I had to remove a lot of chalk around this one with a dremel, but it turned out realy well.

It is also the first complete one I ve found at this location:

 

Holaster sp.

Cenomanian

Cap-Blanc-Nez (France)
