Kiera's Shell


This is my shell from the prehistoric era. Some scientists went mining and found this so here it is. There is a prehistoric shell. It is a fossil of something. Does anyone know what kind of fossil it is? If you do please leave us a comment.

Next week when we go to the museum you will be able to find out lots about fossils that are the same shape as this.
I think they are beautiful and really amazing!

Yes it's an ammonite. There's one in the Waitomo Museum that's HUGE. It's about 1m high!

Scientists think ammonites looked like this when they were alive 65 to 240 million years ago. They look a bit like squid or octopus with a shell.

How many people have worked it out? I pretty sure it is a Amonite though. If we are right please let us know.
