Ammonite

400-66 million years old


Ammonite fossils are one of the most found fossils. Unlike, people often think his ammonites are not sea snails. Ammonites are in fact squids. Ammonites have a flat spiral shell that is made up of different chambers. When the animal becomes too large for the current chamber, a new larger outer chamber is formed. The squid lives in this outer room. The other empty chambers further used as a means to move vertically. In our fossils and minerals webshop we sell both raw (sold as fossil ammonites are found) and polished fossil ammonites.
