2.7" Jurassic Ammonite (Kepplerites) Fossil - Gloucestershire, England

This is a beautiful, 2.7" wide ammonite fossil of the species Kepplerites gowerianus. It was collected from the Middle Jurassic (Callovian Stage) Konegi Subzone of the Kellaways Formation in Gloucestershire, England. It has been beautifully prepped free from the rock it was found in.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Ammonites were predatory cephalopod mollusks that resembled squids with spiral shells. They are more closely related to living octopuses, though their shells resemble that of nautilus species. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago during the Triassic Period. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
