3.2" Aegocrioceras Heteromorph Ammonite - Germany

This is an unusual Aegocrioceras spathi ammonite collected in northwestern Germany. This is most likely a ingle ammonite that broke apart: the larger, arced piece measures 3.2" wide.

This specimen 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.
