That is one big mother of a ammonite very nice to see and admire but what a shame you had to leave it behind.

Hi all....came across this in situ at low tide a couple of days ago at Seaford was at least 3ft across...

I found another,just slightly smaller,at Peacehaven the week before,in a loose boulder,but didn't have a camera that day,it took all my strength to turn the bloody thing over,let alone try & carry it a mile down the beach to the nearest unfortunately had to leave it behind for the sea...

(Note to self.... must pack the donkey in the rucksack next time.)

That's one big ammonite. Never heard of the genus before, so I've just looked  Parapuzosia up - estimated live weight of around 1400kg - you can imagine my jaw dropping as I read that. Not sure about a donkey. Perhaps you'd need a JCB in that rucksack?
Finally found bone[biggrin]
