About this object

Ammonite tuberculatus; a fossil.

Ammonites are an extinct group of marine animals of the subclass Ammonoidea in the class Cephalopoda, phylum Mollusca. They are excellent index fossils, meaning that it is often possible to link the rock layer in which they are found to specific geological time periods. First noted from the Triassic period (251-199.6 million years ago), and plentiful during the Jurassic period (199.6-145.5 million years ago).
