Although the soft parts of members of the Ammonoidea are virtually unknown in the fossil record, this replica reflects what palaeontologists actually think that the soft tissues of ammonites looked like. From the front the animal looks quite foreboding with its two long tentacles and eight muscular arms. Imagine how you would feel if a three-metre-long specimen came hurtling towards you out of the dark waters – very scary!

This ammonite model is great for use in schools as a teaching resource and it will also find a role in helping to explain ammonite fossils in museum display cases.
