Caption: Fossilized ammonites. Fossilized shells of an ammonite (Dactylioceras sp.). Ammonites are extinct cephalopods which lived between 380 and 65 million years ago (mya). They are distantly related to the modern-day nautilus and lived in coastal waters and inland seas. Ammonites are zone fossils, as certain species existed at specific times within the geological timescale, allowing accurate dating of marine rocks. This specimen, from the early Jurassic period (213-188 mya), was found in Germany.
