Two Belemnite (Hibolites) Fossils - England

This is a 4.1" wide plate containing two Hibolites belemnite fossils from England. They are Cretaceous in age or about 130 million years old. The larger of the belemnites is 2.5" long and the other is 1.6" long.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Belemnites are probably the most well known extinct cephalopod after the ammonites. They lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and are fairly common fossils found throughout the world. They had a hard, internal, cone-shaped structure that is often preserved as a fossil, though it is not technically a shell. They had ten arms but, unlike modern squid, these arms had small hooks instead of suckers.
