4.8" Fossil Triassic Ammonite (Ceratites) - Germany

 
This is an unusual, Middle Triassic ammonite (Ceratites nodosus) from the Muschelkalk Formation in Germany.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

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.
