Found this beastie today

Post by shaggybfc »

Hi all, on on the cultivated hills of Gloucestershire today and found his beauty today, just say there, washed by the recent rain. I assume it’s a snail type creature?
Any information gratefully received.

They told me I’d never be any good at poetry, because I’m dyslexic, but so far I’ve made 3 jugs and a vase.

Amazing how they turn up on top of hills in the middle of the country.

Apparently this is a segment of a Rieneckia ammonite - a rare find for Gloucestershire. A complete one found at the Cotswold Wildlife park several years ago that's now on display somewhere. Gloucestershire was once, (165 million years ago), a warm shallow sea.... and they say global warming is new - it' obviously not, it's cyclic.... time to move to higher ground :)

Climate change is not new, however, unsustainable levels of human consumption, manmade pollution and environmental devastation certainly is! Whoops, an ammonite has set me off again! :D

Calm your skin down Fred, don’t want your temperature soaring and quickening the end of the current ice-age 🤣🤣

Take a look at Himalayan ammonites ::g
Rolling about naked in mud will give the wrong impression.
