Ammonites, as they pertain specifically to the order Ammonitida, are an extinct group of marine animals belonging to the cephalopod subclass Ammonoidea. They are excellent index fossils.

The closest living relative of the Ammonitida, is not the modern Nautilus which they somewhat outwardly resemble, but rather the subclass Coleoidea (octopus, squid, and cuttlefish).

Their fossil shells usually take the form of planispirals, although there were some helically-spiraled and non-spiraled forms (known as "heteromorphs"). Their name came from their spiral shape as their fossilized shells somewhat resemble tightly-coiled rams' horns. Pliny the Elder (d. 79 A.D. near Pompeii) called fossils of these animals ammonis cornua ("horns of Ammon") because the Egyptian god Ammon (Amun) was typically depicted wearing ram's horns. Often the name of an ammonite genus ends in -ceras, which is Greek for "horn" (for instance, Pleuroceras).

Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Mollusca, Class: Cephalopoda, Subclass: Ammonoidea, Order: Ammonitida

Suborders: Ammonitina, Ancyloceratina, Phylloceratina, Lytoceratina.

Biarmosuchus tener

Biarmosuchus tener
Meaning of Name: Crocodile from Biarmia, an ancient country in the Perm region.
Procunciation: Bi-arm-moh-SUE-kus

Classification: Therapsida; Eotheriodontia; Family Biarmosuchidae
Late Permian, Zone I
Locality: Ocher, Perm Region
Size: 75cm in length
This cast replica was molded from a half skeleton encased in sediment, as found in the field.

Locality: The original was discovered in Ocher, Perm Region. Russia
Biarmosuchus tener was the size of a large dog.

This mammal-like reptile had canines, incisors and cheek teeth of different shape m as well as teeth on the palate.

Represented is the skeleton of a small predator in the Eotheriodontia, the most primitive of the mammal-like reptiles.

The specimen was preserved in flood channel sandstone that was deposited it in a river flowing off the young and growing Ural Mountains.

The slender nature of the limbs of this mammal-like reptile suggest that it was a very a pie animal. Like Eotitanosuchus olsoni, its skull shows the small, primitive temporal opening behind the eye that is characteristic of the most ancient of therapsid (mammal-like) reptiles.

This is a great Alligator skull with some postcranial elements. We decided to cast the elements and skull In-Situ. The original specimen was found in a block of mudstone and the pieces were a bit jumbled. The skull was mostly intact, which is rare. This is a great replica for anyone into the reptiles of the dinosaur age. There are some teeth still in the dentition also. All elements seen are directly cast from the original specimen; there has been no cosmetic restoration. All elements painted fossil brown are direct from the original fossil. We prepared this specimen and a younger skull of the same species (available soon). This is poured in solid resin so it is very stable.

Goniopholis is an extinct genus of crocodyliform that lived in Europe and Asia during the Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous, and North America (Late Jurassic). Being semi-aquatic it is very similar to modern crocodiles. It ranged from 24 metres in length, and would have had a very similar lifestyle to the American alligator or Nile crocodile. Goniopholis was closely related to the ancestor of extant crocodilians.

Qty

Deinosuchus (pronounced DYE-no-SOO-kəs) is an extinct relative of the alligator. Late Cretaceous. The name translates as "terrible crocodile" and is derived from the Greek deinos ("terrible") and soukhos ("crocodile"). The first remains were discovered in North Carolina in the 1850s.

Deinosuchus was far larger than any modern crocodile or alligator measuring up to 12 m (40 ft) and weighing up to 8.5 metric tons (9.4 short tons) its overall appearance was fairly similar to its smaller relatives. It had large, robust teeth that were built for crushing, and its back was covered with thick semispherical osteoderms. One study indicates that Deinosuchus may have lived for up to 50 years, growing at a similar rate to that of modern crocodilians, but maintaining this growth over a much longer period of time.

Deinosuchus fossils have been found in ten U.S. states, as well as northern Mexico. It lived on both sides of the Western Interior Seaway, and was an opportunistic apex predator in the coastal regions of eastern North America.

Eurypterid cast replica 1 (item #1453)
Eurypterid cast replica

Eurypterids (sea scorpions) are an extinct group of arthropods related to arachnids, which include the largest known arthropods that ever lived. They are members of the extinct class Eurypterida (Chelicerata). The word Eurypterid comes from the Greek word eury meaning "broad" or "wide" and the Greek word pteron meaning "wing". The largest, such as Jaekelopterus, reached 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) or more in length, but most species were less than 20 centimetres (8 in). They were formidable predators that thrived in warm shallow water in the Ordovician to Permian. Although informally called "sea scorpions", only the earliest ones were marine (later ones lived in brackish or freshwater), and they were not true scorpions. According to theory, the move from the sea to fresh water probably occurred by the Pennsylvanian period.

Domain: Eukarya, Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Arthropoda, Subphylum: Chelicerata, Class: Merostomata, Order: Eurypterida,

This specimen of Eurypterid is from the Bertie Group, Silurian Age of New York.

Garfish Lepisosteus

Original Lepisosteus fossils from this locality are sold for $7,000- $15,000. This is a chance to own a museum quality collectors piece for much, much less. It would be the centerpiece and focal point of any collection. This huge plate measures 30.5 x 8.5 inches.

Lepisosteus was found in the Green River Formation of southwest Wyoming and parts of Colorado and Utah. Some of the world's most outstanding specimens of fossil fish are found in the Green River Formation.

The Green River system was composed of three lakes: Lake Ulinta, Lake Gosiute and Fossil Lake. These Eocene Lakes lay in a series of intermountain basins formed by geological events that uplifted the Rocky Mountains during the early Tertiary time. The Climate was much different from the desert-like climate of this area today. Both the fauna (crocodiles, alligators, boa constrictors and some subtropical fish families) and the flora (such as large palm trees) indicate a climate much like that found along the Gulf Coast today. Large amounts of ash found in the sediments indicate that volcanoes were particularly active at this time.

The most common fish found in the formation is the Knightia, a herring-like fish. They are found singularly or in large groupings. These groupings are referred to as "Mortality Layers" and are believed to have been caused by extensive ash fallout after volcanic eruptions. Some of the other species of fish found in the Green River Formation are: Phareodus, a carnivorous fish often found up to 2 feet in length and having many sharp teeth, Mioplosus, a true perch, and Priscacara, a sunfish-like fish with stout dorsal and anal spines. There are also turtles, stingrays, crocodiles and alligator garfish.

The fossils of the Green River Formation each one unique - are some of nature's finest and are highly valued by collectors the world over.

Pronounced (IK-thee-oh-SAWR-us) Ichthyosaurus was, a dolphin-like reptile up to 75 feet long. It could swim at 25 mph (40 kph). Ichthyosaurs had a tall dorsal fin, a half-moon-shaped tail, paddle-like flippers and smooth skin. The nostrils were near the eyes on the top of the head. It had massive ear bones and large eyes, probably giving it acute hearing and sight. These marine reptiles gave birth to live young. Their diet was mostly fish, but also included cephalopods (like belemnites). Hundreds of Ichthyosaurus fossils have been found in England, Germany, Greenland, and Alberta, Canada. They lived during the early Jurassic to the early Cretaceous periods. It was not a dinosaur, but another type of extinct reptile. Ichthyosaurus, which means "fish lizard," was named by Charles Koenig in 1818.

The six mile stretch of coastline to either side of the town Lyme Regis is world famous for its fossils. People have been collecting fossils for at least the last two hundred and fifty years, the most famous being Mary Anning who was born in Lyme in 1799. When she was twelve years old, she discovered the first Ichthyosaur ever to be found in England. During her lifetime, she extracted the first complete ichthyosaur, plesiosaur and the finest flying reptile among many other significant finds.

Lyme Regis lies at the point where the Triassic rocks disappear below the sea and the oldest Jurassic rocks, thick clays and thin limestone of the 'Lias', form the cliffs. These rocks were deposited in a moderately deep tropical sea that was packed with marine life and as a result fossils are very common. Some, such as pencil shaped belemnites and coiled ammonites, are easy to find but others, like ichthyosaurs are far rarer.

Specs: From the Jurassic Period of Glastonbury, England.

They were double scuted, having rows of dorsal and ventral scutes running from the posterior end of the head back to the median fins.

Knightia is an extinct genus of fish well-known from abundant fossils found in the Green River Formation of Wyoming, United States. They rarely exceeded 25 cm in length and are found throughout the formation.

Knightia was a slender fish and seems to have been a secondary consumer, feeding mainly on ostracods, algal forms and diatoms, as well as some smaller fish. They were schooling fish, and because of this they are frequently found together in mass mortality layers.

Lanthanosuchus skull cast ("Forgotten Crocodile") replica
Lanthanosuchus watsoniLocality: Isheevo, Tatarstan

Late Permian, Zone II

Size: About 250 to 750 centimetres in total length in life. This skull cast measures l9cm in length

Meaning of name: 'Forgotten crocodile'

Pronunciation: Lan-than-oh-SUE-kus

Classification: Parareptlilia: Lanthanosuchidae

Skull of a primitive reptilian in a group that may have given rise to turtles.

When scientists first described this fossil, it was thought to be a labyrinthodont amphibian. Further analysis, however, now has led to the view that although in its flattened nature it did bear a strong resemblance to the labyrinthodonts, it was a reptile, and a close ally of turtles. Certainly advanced labyrinthodonts and primitive reptiles show many similarities for indeed some labyrinthodonts that were the ancestors of reptiles.

Lanthanosuchus was adapted to life in warm saline pools, which were abundant in parts of Tatarstan in the Late Permian. There it may have fed on organisms including crabs and insects. It probably was an ambush predator that fed off the bottom of lakes and streams. Notches in the skull below the eye sockets may have housed special saline-excretory glands that dumped excess amounts of salts built up in Lanthanosuchus as a result of its surroundings.

Megalodon Tooth (item #FP MEG)

Megalodon Tooth with stand

Megalodons teeth were up to 6.5" long. Like most sharks, Megalodon teeth were probably located in rows which rotated into use as they were needed. Most sharks have about 5 rows of teeth at any time. The front set does most of the work.

The 1st 2 rows are used for obtaining prey; the other rows rotate into place as needed. As teeth are lost, broken, or worn down, they are replaced by new teeth. Megalodon may have had hundreds of teeth at one time. They did not chew their food like we do, but gulped it down whole in very large chunks.

Cast is in solid resin

Metoposaurus is an extinct genus of temnospondyl amphibian, known from the Late Triassic of Europe and North America. This mostly aquatic animal possessed small, weak limbs, had sharp teeth and a large flat head. The main diet of this highly flattened creature was fish which it captured with its wide jaws lined with needle teeth. Metoposaurus was up to 3 m (10 feet) long, weighed 454 kg (1,000 pounds), and was one of the last large amphibians.

Nothosaurus is an extinct genus of sauropterygian reptile from the Triassic. It's fossils being distributed from North Africa and Europe to China. It was about 4 m (13ft) long and is the best known member of the nothosaur order. Its name means "False lizard".

Nothosaurus was a semi-oceanic animal which probably had a lifestyle similar to that of today's seals. It had long, webbed toes and possibly a fin on its tail. When swimming, Nothosaurus would use its tail, legs, and webbed feet to propel and steer it through the water. The skull was broad and flat,with long jaws, lined with needle teeth, it probably caught fish and other marine creatures. Nothosaurus likely hunted by sneaking up slowly on prey, such as shoals of small fish, then putting on a last-minute burst of speed. Once caught, few animals would be able to shake themselves free from the mouth of Nothosaurus.

Phytosaur skeleton fossil cast replica
Phytosaurs - family Phytosauridae or Parasuchidae - were a group of large (2 to 12 meters long - average size 3 to 4 meters) semi-aquatic predatory archosaurs that flourished during the Late Triassic period. These long-snouted and heavily armoured archosaurs bore a remarkable resemblance to modern crocodiles in size, appearance, and (clearly) lifestyle. The name "phytosaur" (plant reptile) is very misleading, and their snapping jaws clearly show that phytosaurs were predators. The person who first described them mistakenly thought the specimens he was working with were plant-eaters.

Phytosaur skeleton cast measures 15 feet (4.5 meters) long. The price is $39,900 for the whole skeleton.

Plesiosaurus (pronounced: plee-zee-oh-SAWR-us). It's name comes from the Greek: plesios, which means "near to" + sauros, meaning: "lizard"). Plesiosaurus was a large (about 3 to 5 meters long), marine Sauropterygian reptile that lived during the early part of the Jurassic Period, and is known by nearly complete skeletons from the Lias of England and Germany. It was distinguished by its small head, long and slender neck, broad turtle like body, a short tail, and two pairs of large, elongated paddles. It lends its name to the order Plesiosauria, of which it is an early but fairly typical member.

Plesiosaurus was one of the first of the "antediluvian reptiles" to be discovered (by Mary Anning), and excited great interest in Victorian England. It was so-named ("near lizard") by William Conybeare, to indicate that it was more like a normal reptile than Ichthyosaurus, which had been found in the same rock strata just a few years previously.

With an estimated body length of 40 feet, and a skull over 5 1/2 feet long, Supercroc is one of the largest crocodiles that ever walked the Earth. The Sarcosuchus's jaws are lined with over 100 teeth. Unlike modern crocodilians whose teeth interlock, Supercroc's lower teeth fit inside its uppers, leading scientists to the conclusion that Sarcosuchus imperator did not limit its diet to fish. It is believed that Sarcosuchus was an ambush predator capable of killing large dinosaurs that wandered too close to the water's edge. The Sarcosuchus's unusual bulbous snout is thought to have given it a greater ability to smell prey and make louder sounds. This gigantic crocodilian was first discovered in the Sahara desert by Albert-Felix de Lapparent (1964) and named by France de Broin / Phillipe Taquet (1966).

Steller's sea cow (Hydrodamalis gigas) is a large extinct sirenian mammal. Formerly abundant throughout the North Pacific, its range was limited to a single, isolated population on the uninhabited Commander Islands by 1741 when it was first described by Georg Wilhelm Steller, chief naturalist on an expedition led by explorer Vitus Bering. Within 27 years of discovery by Europeans, the slow moving and easily captured Steller's sea cow was hunted to extinction.

Titanichthys Skull cast replica

Titanichthys agassizi was a giant, aberrant marine placoderm from the Late Devonian. It approached Dunkleosteus in size and build. Unlike its relative, however, T. agassizi had small, ineffective-looking mouth-plates that lacked a sharp cutting edge. It is presumed that the beast used its capacious mouth to swallow or inhale schools of small, anchovy-like fish, or possibly krill-like zooplankton, and that the mouth-plates retained the prey while allowing the water to escape as it closed its mouth.

When the first specimens were found in Morocco by geologist Henri Termier, Titanichthys was originally placed within the genus Gorgonichthys - that is, after Termier was able to convince his colleagues that the bone scraps were of a placoderm, and not a . A junior synonym is Brontichthys, which should not be confused with another arthrodire, Bruntonicthys (Dinichthyidae).
