Hildoceras Bifrons

Ammonites like this lived in the Jurassic period.  They belong to a group of animals known as Cephalopods.  Today this group includes the soft-bodied octopus and squid, but many extinct species such as this had shells.  These shells acted as both protection and as devices to help the animals float in the water.
