Ammonites inhabited the planet for more than 300 million years—almost twice as long as dinosaurs—before disappearing in the mass extinction event more than 66 million years ago.
Ammonites thrived in the Paleozoic and Mesozoic Eras, some 400 to 66 million years ago. These ancient cephalopods, relatives of modern-day squid, octopus, cuttlefish, and the chambered nautilus, were able to swim thanks to the multi-chambered construction of their shell, which provided variable buoyancy, and probably moved through the water using jet propulsion.
