On offer is a stunning and large Ammonite, with a small ammonite in the centre of the large specimen. 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. The black and white ruler in the image represents 10 cm (3.9 inch).
Attractively displayed on a custom-made stand with integral light fixing, and ready to display.
