3.55" Fossil Heteromorph (Nostoceras) Ammonite - Madagascar

 
This is a really cool heteromorph ammonite (Nostoceras sp.) fossil from the Tulear Province of Madagascar. Unlike most ammonites with a tightly coiled, spiral shell that retains its shape throughout it's life, heteromorph ammonites have irregularly-coiled or uncoiled shells.

These heteromorph ammonites are Late Cretaceous in age (Campanian Stage) or approximately 70 million years old. They are quite uncommon and are collected near Morafena Village though the nearest large city, Belo sur Tsiribihina, is often referred to as the locality instead.



Comes with an acrylic display stand.
