Two Ammonite Fossils In Rock - Boulmane, Morocco

This is two, unidentified fossil ammonites from Morocco. They are still partially imbedded in the stone in which it was found. The elaborate suture lines of the inner shell are visible under magnification on the largest ammonite. The stone contains a number of other unidentified fossils.

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.
