These ammonites are now hard to find from due to being over-collected over the years, and being highly sought after. They also have to be carefully treated and stabilised. This specimen is treated with the museum grade Paraloid.
Ammonites are one of the most recognisable fossils around, this is due to their familiar spiral shape shell, reminiscent of what we know as a snail shell, though these creatures are not related to snails at all! They were marine animals, present between 240 – 65 million years ago, who had a coiled external shell similar to that of the modern nautilus, and although they resembled a modern-day nautilus, these molluscs are more closely related to living coleoids (i.e. octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish!)
