This week on our Facebook Live Show, we discuss the differences between three beautiful and unique types of ammonites.
Ammonites may look like ancient nautiluses, but they're actually more closely related to modern-day octopuses. They're so important in paleontology because of their use as index fossils - they're able to link the rock layer they're found in to a specific geologic time period. The name "ammonite" was bestowed upon them in 79 AD by Pliny the Elder, a naturalist who is credited as the inventor of the encyclopedia.
