Caption: Ammonites. Assortment of small and large ammonites clustered around pieces of wood. These are extinct marine animals which lived between 380 and 65 million years ago. Distantly related to the modern-day nautilus, ammonites were cephalopod molluscs, resembling a squid-like animal within a coiled shell. These ammonites were found in lower lias rock in Lyme Regis, England. Lower lias is limestone rock which was laid down in the early Jurassic period (195-172 million years ago). Part of the Jurassic sea bed (grey) can also be seen in the image. These ammonites are from Andy Barton Cowap's Classic Jurassic collection.
