Douvilleiceras ammonites are easily distinguished by the deep, wide ridges on their shells. Discovered in the Mahajanga province of Madagascar, Douvilleiceras fossils often go by the nickname "tractor ammonites" due to their larger size and resemblance to tractor tires.

Size: 5.1 inch diameter

What were ammonites?

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.
