    I think that is an internal mold of the living chamber of Baculites grandis. Mind you, not a good specimen by any stretch of the imagination, which is what you need to use to visualize the fossil :lol:

    I wonder if people somewhere are being taught that ammonites are Cephalod tentacles? 8-)

    Phil,

    That is obviously a hunk of foie gras covered with aspic. It would go nicely with a baguette and a bottle of Chateauneuf.
