Bobo the bear
I found this ammonite tucked away in an Uncle's desk. As he isn't with us anymore I can't ask him where he got it from, although he was in the RAF and stationed in Canada, Far East and Germany at different times. Just wondered if anyone had any idea on what it is....From colour I would say a common or garden peresphinctes but I know it must have been at least 30 years in his possession.

Looks like a typical Madagascar ammonite, widely available for sale; if so, it could have been acquired almost anywhere.

That's what I thought...prerisphinctes type from Madagascar. Thx for confirmation.
