8.8" Plate of Devonian Ammonite & Cephalopod Fossils - Morocco

This is a 8.8" wide plate of Devonian-aged ammonite and straight cephalopod fossils collected near Tafraout, Morocco. There are at least three ammonite species present on the plate as well as two straight cephalopod fossils, though I can not identify the specific species. The largest complete ammonite on the plate is 2.15" wide. These fossils have been prepped in high relief against the rock and cross sections of additional ammonites can be seen scattered throughout the limestone.

Comes with 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.
