Moroccan Fossils

Orthoceras with Stand

The country of Morocco, located in northwest Africa, is rich with fossils such as ammonites, orthoceras, trilobites and dinosaur teeth. A portion of the Sahara Desert, which was once an ocean, is located within Morocco and holds many remains of creatures that once inhabited the earth. Skilled artisans have taken great time and care to prepare and polish some of the fossils. Orthoceras are dated to the lower Ordovician to Triassic ages (500 to 190 million years ago). The name "Ammonite" originates from the Greek horned ram called Ammon. Ammonites are perhaps the most widely known fossils, bearing a typically banded spiral formation shell. These squid-like creatures lived in the sea between 65-415 million years ago.
