Ammonites in the broad sense (Ammonoidea) are an extinct subclass of cephalopod molluscs. They appear in the fossil record during the Devonian and disappear shortly after the Cretaceous-Paleocene disaster. Characterized by a more or less spiral-shaped univalve shell, of which only the last chamber was occupied by the animal; the other chambers were used to control its buoyancy. Their fossils are considered excellent chronological markers. Their size ranges from a few millimetres to more than 2 meters in diameter.
A case will be included for its protection.
