Madagascan ammonite 1
An absolutely huge, and beautiful, half Perisphinctes Ammonite from the Tulear Region of Madagascar. It dates from the Mesazoic Era, Upper Jurassic Series, Oxfordian Epoch, and is between 161m to 155m years old.
They were marine creatures related to today's Nautiloids, and swam using air for buoyancy in the chambers of their shells.
Imagine a creature as large as this, bobbing around in the ocean, searching for its next meal.
The complete ammonite has been split, and the half highly polished, to show the beauty of the interior chambers of the creature
The colours vary from fossil to fossil, so each one is unique
