Whilst entering our local amusement park's "white water rafting" ride, I couldn't help but notice that the slabs of stone used for the entrance to the ride "Piraña" were beautifully laced with Orthocones. My iPhone was, alas, my photography weapon of choice, but I think it's still worth posting. The one on the right is about a foot and a half in length, minimum...

Very cool that they would present real rocks with interesting things to look at. All of our parks manufacture the landscape and they look that way.

:tongue: D beat me to it..:heee:. Seriously though, really nice Orthocone. Is it an Actinocerid? Nice line up of presenters too. Some people have all the fun. :mrgreen:

hmm...maybe something more like a Treptoceras? Although it's not as slender as the few I looked at the siphuncle has that bead-like appearance.
