Ammonites are one of the most abundant and important Mesozoic fossils. The evolution of the
group was so rapid that particular species can be used to correlate geological beds within fairly
narrow dates. With the modern Nautilus being one of the last remaining members of the group, it
is fossils from the Mesozoic (especially the Jurassic and Cretaceous) that show the great diversity
of forms that once swam in the oceans.

The ammonite animal was similar to a modern squid except it lived within a shell. Many types are
believed to have floated peacefully in the water column, carried by ocean currents until prey or
predators approached. When needed, propulsion was achieved by squirting water in a jet to give
sudden bursts of speed. Being both predator and prey, the size of different species is highly
variable varying from barely 1cm to some forms becoming enormous and measuring a metre or
more.
