Goniatite Ammonite, Morocco - 2 inches
This ancient creature swam in tropical oceans during the Devonian, about 400 million years ago. Ammonites belong to the cephalopod class, cousins of the present squid and octopus. Goniatite ammonites were named after their wavy suture lines that decorate the out shell in beautiful patterns. These sutures outline the chambers or septa that were used for regulating buoyancy allowing the animas to quickly change depths in the ocean. Collected in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco in North Africa.
