Ammonite Fossil Pair on Stand
- In stock:
Ammonites were predatory, squidlike creatures that lived inside coil-shaped shells. Ammonites first appeared about 240 million years ago, though they descended from straight-shelled cephalopods called bacrites that date back to the Devonian, about 415 million years ago. Ammonites were prolific breeders, lived in schools, and are among the most abundant fossils found today. They went extinct with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Dimensions include stand.
As displayed, the stain has slightly rubbed off. There is some writing on the underside of the stand as displayed per photograph.
