- Ammonite – Unknown Species
- Cretaceous Age
- This is a BIG specimen, measuring in at 13″ wide! This specimen was seemingly found in a few pieces and put back together.. there are small areas where the underlying fill can be seen as a light yellow. These could be easily touched up with a bit of artistic work.. actually a bargain price for such a big specimen!!
Ammonites are an extinct group of marine invertebrate animals similar to the modern nautilus. (Cephalopoda) Like the nautilus, ammonites had a soft body with tentacles that emerged from a hollow chambered shell utilized in the manner of a submarine’s ballast tanks. Ammonites are often identified by their shell ornamentation and the structures of the wall that divide the shell’s chambers.
