Description: This rare mortality plate consists of several Belemnites, which are also known as Belemnites paxillosus. Belemnites are probably the most well known extinct cephalopod after the ammonites. They lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and are fairly common fossils found throughout the world.
Belemnites had a hard, internal, cone shaped structure that is preserved as a fossil however it is technically not a shell. They had 10 arms but unlike modern squid these arms had small hooks instead of suckers. This plate has several Belemnites scattered throughout its surface, ranging in size from 1cm, and up to 7cm in length.
Size of Plate: 50cm x 30cm x 4cm
