Two Fossil Ammonites (Promicroceras) - Lyme Regis

These are two very beautiful agatized, Promicroceras planicosta ammonite fossils, collected from Lyme Regis, England. They have been nicely prepared so that they display very well on the limestone slab. Each ammonite is on a different side of the rock.

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. True ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
