1.35" Jurassic Fossil Ammonite Cluster (Caloceras) - United Kingdom

This is a 1.35" wide association in rock of multiple ammonites (Caloceras cf. belcheri) collected from North Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. The specimen is free standing at 2.3" tall, and contains 2 well preserved ammonites and one partial ammonite.

Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
