Ammonites and Nautilus Association

The term ammonite refers to an extinct group of mollusks. Along with dinosaurs, ammonites died out at the end of the Cretaceous Period, about 65 million years ago. Their existence on earth lasted for about 330 million years.

The hard shells, which these squid-like organisms occupied, are found as fossils in many places around the world. Ammonites are still collected and prized for their beauty, but are also important to the study of geology and evolution. They provide a reference for dating sediments, aiding in the exploration for petroleum and other economic products, and help us to reconstruct the history of the Earth.
