Ammonites are the fossilized remains of ammonoids, a group of extinct mollusk-like animals that are most closely related to squids and cuttlefish today. These creatures filled earth's oceans for over 340 million years, until vanishing along with the dinosaurs in the mass extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous period.
