4" Jurassic Ammonite (Parkinsonia) Fossil - Sengenthal, Germany

This is a very beautiful 4" wide Parkinsonia ammonite from Sengenthal, Germany. This Jurassic-aged ammonite is still partially embedded in the rock from which it was removed. The base of this rock is flat and allows for aesthetic presentation without the assistance of a 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. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
