I've found a fossil of one of these before. I was in middle school and when I picked it up I found out it was on top of an ant bed (Hill) and my hands got all bit up, by ants. Needless to say I asked a teacher to watch it for me until I got back...and some damn 5th grader stole it from me. >_<

It is, but people where I live can be total dicks. Hardly anyone knows their manners anymore, it's aggravating! I wished I would have ignored the damn ants and kept the fossil. It would have saved me allot of grief. >_<

I'm working on an educational activity for the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and I was wondering if I could have permission to use your image. I will not be able to directly credit you for your work. Please feel free to say no and I will not use your work. This is not for profit and will be used purely for educational purposes.

Looks awesome. Can't vouch for accuracy. I know ammonites in general started before and continued after this era, but I can't tell the species apart really. Moody with interesting lighting.

I'm doing my senior thesis on ammonites in folklore and I was wondering if I could use this image in my paper and/or presentation.

I will of course credit you as the copyright holder if you grant permission.

Please get back to me as soon as you can. Thank you in advance.
