Ammonite Fossil

Ammonite Fossil

This ammonite, on display in our Time Ark gallery, lived in warm seas more than 100 million years ago. Ammonites were ancestors of the octopus and looked much like what a nautilus does today.

This is a fossil of a Titanite, which was over two metres across the shell but was by no means the largest species.
