On offer is a stunning and large Ammonite. Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.

This comes with a stainless steel display stand.

This piece formed part of the Museum Biochron in Emmen in The Netherlands. The Museum has recently deaccessioned part of its collections.
