Goodness me, what a big one!

Hi folks.

Latest find attached. Another escapee from the Holderness boulder clays. Its a crushed fragment of a Liparoceras body chamber in a nodule (Middle or Lower Lias presumably). The whole animal was obviously a bit of a whopper! Both rows of tubercles are present on the fossil but haven't shown up well on the photo. Also attached is a pic of a more regular sized individual of the same genus found in the clays of Blockley brickpit as a comparison. Biro for scale. Other than the lipo found not a lot on this particular trip.

All the best

Fantastic ammonite Andy, definitely in the paperweight class.

That shows the tubercles really well, a great find. You must be really pleased!

Jealous here....
