Orthoceras is an extinct "straight" cephalopod that lived during the Devonian period nearly 400 million years ago. Like other cephalopods they lived inside of their shell, had tentacles they could use to grab food and used jet propulsion, squirting water to move. Rock containing their abundant fossils is mined near Erfoud, Morocco and is commonly shaped and polished into decorative pieces.
