Mounted Agadir Ammonites

100 million years old.

These beautiful ammonites, an extinct group of marine mollusk were distant relatives of the living squid and octopus.

Ammonites evolved from nautiloids in early Devonian period (400 million years ago) but suddenly disappeared at the end of Cretaceous period.

The name “ammonite” evolved because of the resemblance of the ram’s horn of Ammon, the ancient Egyptian god of life and procreation.

During Medieval time's these fossils were believed to be petrified coiled snakes (serpent stones) and thought to have healing powers (e.g: curing snakebites).
