FOSSIL AMMONITE - DACTYLIOCERAS SP.

THE SCIENCE

The ammonites in these fossils are from the Dactylioceras species. They were found in the UK. They are estimated to be approximately 180 million years old, which places them in the Jurassic Period.

THE STORY

These ammonites were widespread and their name comes from their straight, finger-like ribs. Mass mortalities of this species have been found, indicating perhaps that they traveled to a certain place to spawn and then immediately died. Each fossil contains a single ammonite, rising up from a dramatic black matrix.
