Nautilus Fossil

  • £75.00


Approximately 100mm long. Nautilus is the common name of any marine creatures of the cephalopod family Nautilidae, the sole extant family of the suborder Nautilina. Having survived relatively unchanged for over 500 millions years, they are known as 'living fossils'. Fossil records show that some earlier variants had straight-shells rather than the logarithmic spirals, and that some nautiloids reached over 2.5 meters in size.
