earthstory:

Sutured ammoniteThese extinct relatives of squid grew incrementally, adding new chambers to their shell as the organism within grew, and closing off the used smaller chambers behind them. The empty chambers were useful for buoyancy as they cruised the Mesozoic oceans, saving them energy keeping their altitude in the water column. The species in the photo, Placenticeras meeki is famous for its squiggly sutures between chambers, displayed to perfection in this specimen. It is a late species, coming from the late Cretaceous Hell’s Creek Formation, also famed for its dinosaur finds (most ammonites are found near paleocoasts, it being surmised that the chambers and decomposition gases made them float after death, meaning that most specimens ended up washed up on coasts. The fossil has been replaced with yellow and brown calcite during its slow transformation (along with its entombing surroundings) from sediment into rock, a complex process known as diagenesis. LozImage credit: Heritage Auctions
