Ammonites are an extinct group of marine animals that lived during the Mesozoic era, between 350 and 65 million years ago. These fascinating creatures belong to the phylum Mollusca, which also includes snails, clams, and squids.
One of the most striking features of ammonites is their spiral shells, which are often intricately patterned. These shells were divided into chambers, and as the ammonite grew, it would add new chambers to the open end of the shell. The animal would live in the last chamber, which was called the living chamber. The other chambers were filled with gases and liquids, which helped the ammonite to float and maneuver through the water.
Ammonites were predatory animals, and they probably fed on a variety of small marine animals, including crustaceans, fish, and other mollusks. They were able to swim by jet propulsion, squirting water out of their shells.
Ammonites were incredibly diverse and lived in all the world's oceans, from the tropics to the poles. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from small, delicate specimens to large, impressive specimens.
Today, ammonite fossils are highly prized by collectors and can be found in many different varieties, sizes and colors. Ammonites are a fascinating glimpse into the ancient past and make a unique addition to any collection. They are also believed to have healing properties, especially on the physical, emotional and spiritual level, which makes them a great ornament for home decor, meditation or healing practices.
