1.7" Ammonite Fossil - Boulemane, Morocco

This is 1.7", unidentified fossil ammonite from Morocco. It is still partially imbedded in the stone in which it was found. There are a number of other fossil shell fragments imbedded in the stone.



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.
