1.9" Callovian Ammonite (Perisphinctes) Fossil - France

This is a fossil ammonite of the genus Perisphinctes, collected from France. It is Callovian (Jurassic period) in age, or approximately 165 million years old.

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. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
