STRIKING ammonite cut base from Morocco
Ammonites flourished in the ancient oceans, near the continents, at all water depths. They were carnivorous, probably very agile and intelligent, like their modern relative the Nautilus. They are an extinct group of marine animals. These cephalopods range in size from less than an inch to 9 feet in diameter. They existed during the Devonian time period over 300 million years ago.
This ammonite comes from Morocco.
Measurement: 4 x 3 1/4 x 1/8 thick. The base 5 1/2 inches.
