I couldn’t believe my luck today in stumbling across a large fossil! Since my neighbors sleep during the day, I left a second time in the afternoon to go exploring and give them a chance to catch a little more shuteye. I rambled and wandered and almost literally stumbled over this fossil. My son said he thought it was some kind of Nautilus, because only the Nautilus had these chambers. He said it was the precursor to the Squid. Here is a link to a photo of that on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.o/wiki/File:Nautilus_profil... But I never realized they got so big! My shoe size is 8 1/2, so you can have some sense of how large the fossil is. The University will probably come to see if it’s collectible.
HAH! This is an appropriate find for the Navigator! :))
