    'Sucher'; methinks that's what happens when a news story is dictated down the phone to a reporter unaware of the terminology. A photo of the offending ammonoid would have been nice, oh well.

    20" (508mm) is a nice sized shell. :shock:

    I wonder just how many fossils get hauled away from construction sites without anyone even realizing what they are? :cry:
