Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Excavated belemnite fossil. Child holding up a belemnite fossil that he has just extracted. Belemnites are an extinct group of molluscs that are thought to be related to modern cephalopods such as octopus, squid and cuttlefish. They were plentiful during the Jurassic Period (about 200-145 million years ago) but became extinct 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous period. Photographed at the Lower Chalk cliffs near Eastbourne, England.
