Switzerland 2015 Ammonite Embossed Odd Shaped Stamp MS  



Issue date 26 Feb 2015

Ammonites are spirally coiled fossils found on the fossil rich Swiss Jura Mountains. These fossils are the remains of creatures related to octopus and squid that first appeared around 400 million years ago, spread throughout the world’s oceans, then died out at the same time as the dinosaurs approximately 65 million years ago.  

Ammonites had an outer shell like a snail, but the inner part of the shell had chambers of the kind we can still see today in the living pearly nautilus.
