    Now that I've got your attention, I'm afraid to report it's not that big and details are scant. Nonetheless, as ammonite news is as rare as a giant squid sighting, here goes anyway:

    That is pretty big though isn't it? How big did they get?

    Not bad, not bad. Have a look at this thread for details on the largest ammonites ever found. It's a shock....

    THAT was an understatement!

    :shock:

    Wow! Thanks!

    It's 23:04 here, I've just eaten tons of cheese and I'm off to bed, hopefully the combination of diary products and mindblowing fossil pictures will create vivid Giant Ammonite dreams!
