2.8" Jurassic Ammonite (Parkinsonia) Fossil - Germany

This is a beautifully preserved, 2.8" wide Parkinsonia sp. ammonite from Sengenthal, Germany. This Jurassic aged ammonite is still partially embedded in the rock from which it was removed from. The base of this rock is flat and allows for aesthetic presentation without the assistance of a 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.
