These ancient creatures swam in tropical oceans during the Devonian period, about 400 million years ago. Ammonites belong to the cephalopod family, cousins of the contemporary squid and octopus. Goniatite ammonites were named after the wavy lines that decorate the shell. These outline the chambers that were used for regulating buoyancy allowing them to change depths in the ocean. Collected in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco in North Africa.
