Ammonite fossils are fossilized remains of extinct marine mollusks known as ammonoids. These creatures lived during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras, between 416 and 66 million years ago, and were abundant in the seas of the time.

The ammonite shell is one of the most distinctive and recognizable features of these creatures. It is coiled in a spiral shape, similar to that of a nautilus shell, but with more intricate patterns and ridges. The shell served as a protective home for the ammonite, and also provided buoyancy and control in the water.

Ammonite fossils are found all over the world, and are highly valued by collectors and scientists alike for their beauty and scientific importance. By studying the fossils, scientists can learn about the evolution and biology of ammonoids, as well as the ecology and environment of the ancient seas they lived in.

Some of the most famous and well-preserved ammonite fossils come from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, including species such as Acanthoceras, Baculites, and Cleoniceras. These fossils can be found in a variety of rock formations, including shale, limestone, and sandstone, and can be collected by amateur fossil hunters or purchased from fossil dealers.
