    Hey Kevin, this was my "prize" for babysitting my grandpuppy, it's really cool to hold one in my hands ( the ammonite not the puppy), instead of viewing in photos! Anyway it was purchased at a rock shop in East Tennessee in the Knoxville area, and supposedly all their fossils are found in that area. So what do you think?

    You have a brilliant son (and/or daughter-in-law depending upon who came up with the prize idea)!

    It looks like one of those ammonites from Madagascar. I'll look into it :)
