Fossil Information: Ammonites are extinct cephalopods that lived in the ocean that once covered the Sahara Desert about 400 million years ago (during the Devonian period). The modern-day squid, octopus, and chambered nautilus are also cephalopods. Ammonites were first called Ammon’s Stones for their resemblance to the ram’s horns of Ammon, ancient Egyptian God of life and procreation.
