BACULITES
 
Part of a heteromorph ammonite


70 million years old

Dawson County, Montana, USA​​​​

Baculites is an extinct genus of ammonite that lived at the end of the Cretaceous period, just before ammonites (and dinosaurs) became extinct. It is known as a heteromorph ammonite which is a group of ammonites that did not have regularly coiled shells.  

Baculites had a mostly straight shell and has been called 'walking stick rock'. Like normal ammonites its shell was divided into chambers and the divisions between the chambers can be seen as ornate suture lines. When these creatures were alive Montana was an inland sea.
  
This specimen has been polished. It is presented in a plastic display box.
