5.4" Devonian Ammonite (Anetoceras) - Morocco

 
This is a 5.4" wide specimen of the Early Devonian ammonite Anetoceras, quarried in the Anti-Atlas Region of Morocco. The ammonite has been painstakingly prepared from the hard limestone matrix that it was found.

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.
