Description

Dies ist ein Ammonoidee, der Ceratit Ceratites spinosus PHILLIPI.

Die Ceratiten bilden zusammen mit den echten Ammoniten, Goniatiten und weiteren die Unterklasse der Ammonoideen. Diese Verwandten der heutigen Tintenfische waren aktive Schwimmer und lebten räuberisch.

Die Gattung Ceratites war fast die einzige der Kopffüßer im Muschelkalkmeer. Offenbar war nur diese Gruppe in der Lage, mit den überhöhten Salzgehalten und geringen Wassertiefen des Muschelkalk-Meeres zurecht zu kommen.

Alter: ca. 229 Mio Jahre, Ladinium, ob. Muschelkalk, Mitteltrias
Fundort: Steinbruch Heesten, Horn-Bad Meinberg, Kr. Lippe
