    It's a nice fossil, and the price is right.

    Go for it. 8-)

    ok... I'll let you know how it goes. You get to explain to hubby why I am now buying dead rocks in addition to the live rocks in my tank. :grin:

    Where should I toss him? Into a sea churning full of Humboldts? Nah, that's where we should toss Neil :razz:
    I guess I should just keep him, he must be good for something... He can't complain too much, especially if I get this fossil for $2.00. It's cheaper than a new pair of shoes :grin:

    I'm with you on the Neil idea!!! as for the hubby, I s'pose if you've gone to all the trouble to get him house trained then it's probably best to keep him! I believe they're good on cold nights for warming up their better halfs poor cold wee feet!!!:lol:

    Note: I haven't actually got a hubby.................wonder why ? :confused: :lol: J

    Yeah, I guess I better keep him... Plus, he bought me one of those electric blankets for Christmas that has two sets of controls (warm for me and cool for him). He's so thoughtful...wait a minute, maybe he was just tired of icy toes! I'm working on the ceph-training, although he does keep talking about how he would like more interesting animals in the salt water tank (I guess fish and shrimp aren't exciting...) so my plan for the feeder tank and a bigger ceph tank might work:sly:

    Flipping heck, just $2! I must check e-Bay more often if you can get bargains like that. I hope you can show us some cracking close ups when you receive it.

    Well done!

    Great, 8-)

    I guess with a price like that for such a nice "dead rock", I dont have to explain anything, right?

    Cool 8-)

    Alot of other fossil bits on that rock. Part of a brachiopod on the upper left side, a branch of bryozoa on the bottom, and even a tilobite pygidium just above the orthocone.

    I noticed the bryozoan and the brachiopod but I didn't notice the trilobite. Out of view under another piece of bryozoan is a piece of a crinoid stem. I need to get out my microscope and take a closer look at this fossil. The other side of the rock is also covered in fossils.

    The guy I bought it from also gave me a crinoid trace fossil and a little fern fossil. Nice guy... He said that this one was collected from Maysville Formation in northern Kentucky.
