Caption: Ammonites. Computer artwork of ammonites in the sea during the Devonian period. This lasted from around 408 to 360 million years ago. Ammonites were marine cephalopod molluscs, related to the similar-looking modern-day nautilus. Air chambers in their spiral shells enabled them to control their buoyancy. It is thought that they could withdraw their body into their shell for protection. These ammonites were generated for use in the Devonian Ocean Simulator, an interactive virtual reality simulation of marine wildlife at this time.
