Code:   (Ammo#2)

Description:

A specimen ammonite, Dactylioceras tenuicostatum, collected from the Tenuicostatum Zone, Upper Lias, Whitby. North Yorkshire.

Dactylioceras tenuicostatum is very similar to the ammonite Dactylioceras commune. The main differences between the two are that, Dactylioceras tenuicostatum has more ridges, and they are closer together. Both of these ammonites are commonly found on the coast of North Yorkshire. Ammonites were eaten by larger sea-living reptiles, including the dolphin-like ichthyosaur, plesiosaurs and pliosaurs.

This specimen is from the Jurassic period (206 - 144 million years ago)
