All of our Fossils are 100% Genuine Specimens & come with a Certificate of Authenticity

Name: Dactylioceras commune
Age: Jurassic
Location: Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Dactylioceras was a widespread genus of ammonites from the Lower Jurassic period, approximately 180 million years ago!

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!)
