    wooowwww!!!!! I thought I was the only freakish Archaeopteryx fan, but now I see that there is somebody else even more fan of A.litographica… are you a paleontologist?
    Archaeopterix rocks!
    BTW, I had this little trip to Germay (Solnhofen) to meet the limestones were Archaeopteryx was embedded ;)
