I knew you would find something interesting! Did you find the two pockets of ammonoids very close together? Are they young ammonoids or just a small species? What age is the rock you are working in?:smile:

These are Triassic ceratite ammonoids, ID to be determined. They have ceratitic suture lines unlike "true" ammonites that have ammonitic suture lines. The pockets are found from 3 to 500 meters apart and we found 4 or 5. We collected one pocket that was easy to collect, the two pockets pictured would have taken jack-hammers or dynamite to collect in the time we had. :wink: We won't be able to tell if they are adults or juveniles until they get prepared, but there are fossils of all sizes, the largest at about 60mm.
