As an adult, I moved near the ocean and I became interested in ammonites. Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossil. They usually possess the ribbed spiral-form shell as pictured above. These creatures lived in the seas between 240 - 65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. Ammonites belong to a group of predators known as cephalopods, which includes their living relatives the octopus, squid, cuttlefish and nautilus.
