3.8" Fossil (Androgynoceras) Ammonite - Germany

This is a 3.8" fossil Ammonite (Androgynoceras) from Westphalia, Germany. This very nice specimen shows the outer shell of the ammonite as well as a cast of the inside of the shell. The ammonite has mostly been prepped free from the rock it was found in, however the remaining rock has been cut flat, allowing for aesthetic presentation without the need of a 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.
