Two Devonian Ammonites (Anetoceras) Fossils - Tazarine, Morocco

 
 
Here are two complete, Early Devonian ammonites (Anetoceras) collected near Tazarine, Morocco. The ammonites have been painstakingly prepared from the hard limestone matrix that they were found.

The largest ammonite is 3" wide. The base of the rock is cut flat so that it stands up on a flat surface without the need for a 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.
