About the image on this page

Ammonites are of group of extinct animals closely related to living squid and cuttlefish. The earliest ammonites appeared during the Devonian period and vanished at he end of Cretaceous period. Ammonites are excellent index fossils, linking the rock layer in which a particular species or genus is found to specific geologic time periods.

This Ammonite cluster was donated by an senior club member to a junior working on an Eagle Scout project. It came with a life time of knowledge and became the start of a friendship between two club members a generation apart.
