Two Bathonian Ammonite (Zigzagiceras) Fossils - France

 
 
These are two fossil ammonites of the genus Zigzagiceras (Procerozigzag), collected from St. Benin, France. It is Bathonian (Jurassic period) in age, or approximately 168 million years old. 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.
