Top Quality Perisphinctes Fossil Ammonite on Acrylic Case, Jurassic Period

$970

About

Perisphinctes Ammonite Period: Jurassic 163 - 145 Million years ago. These ammonites could grow from anywhere between 10 mm to over a meter in diameter, making them among the largest of the ammonites. Ammonites were squid-like predatory creatures that lived inside spiral-shaped shells. The ammonite shell was constantly developing as they grew, but they only lived in the outer chamber. They moved through warm, shallow seas, spraying body-jets of water with a tube-like structure, called a siphon, reaching out to pump and pressurize the air, helping them move through the water. This ammonite was fossilized in silicon-rich sediment of calcite, which enabled rapid petrification.
