2.4" Fossil Ammonite (Mammites) - Goulmima, Morocco

This is a bumpy, 2.4" wide fossil ammonite (Mammites) from near Jbel Timetrout, Morocco. This genus of ammonite has rows of raised nodes around its shell.

Comes with an acrylic stand.



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. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
