The word ammonite is derived from the name of the Greek God “Ammon” who appeared with ram’s horns on his head. These distant ancestors of the Chambered Nautilus are members of the Phylum Cephalopoda. The animal that lived in these shells looked something like an octopus or squid. There are several different species of ammonites. Some were more than four feet across in size, while others were no larger than a dime.
