Belemnites are fossil cephalopods related to squids, octopods and cuttlefish. They went extinct about 65 million years ago. Their fossil remains are easy to find at the C&D Canal in Delaware. Belemnitella americana was named Delaware state fossil on July 2, 1996.

We have a mollusk curator *and* a mollusk collections manager, the latter is an invertebrate paleontologist. Our mollusk curator who is on the expedition is a teuthologist, which is a malacologist specializing in cephalopods. If you ever want a peek at the collection let us know!

We totally agree. Here’s a pic of a Benthoctopus sent by our mollusk curator from an expedition she’s on this week.

Crested geckos were thought to be extinct until 1994, when they were rediscovered living in relatively large numbers on the islands of New Caledonia. Though they are a popular choice for pets, in the wild they are listed as vulnerable. Rango is one of the live animals at DMNH.
