    Strange request I know. I'd be very interested in purchasing one or several preserved chambered Nautilus specimens (with shells), if anyone had any to offer.

    Thanks
    Steve

    :wink: Hmm, this is a long shot, but if a fisherman in the area catches one you could preserve it yourself, what's it for, by the by?





    P.S. Love the new Avatar, what's it supposed to be? It looks like a bloated Grimpitoteuthis *sp*?

    Well I don't think it strange!


    Have you tried the Carolina Biological Supply Company? They sell preserved specimens and may have something. We got some stuff from the for the programmes here.
