Orthoceras

199-88 million years old


Orthoceras, which means straight horn, is an extinct family member of the nautiloid that still occurs in the world. The orthoceras lived between 488 and 199 Million years ago and was found all over the world. Despite the fact that an orthoceras has an external shield, they probably looked much more like today’s squid. In our webshop we sell polished orthoceras from Morocco.
