These are often called Tractor Ammonites because the raised ridges in the shell looks like a tractor tire. The real name for this species is Douvilleiceras mammilatum.
Upper Early Cretaceous, Albian Stage
Origin: Mahajanga Province, Madagascar The lack of acidity in the depositional environment allowed them to be preserved with the shell.
*interesting fact: the different color and patterns of the inner chambers are a result of what the creature ate during its travels through the ocean. This one seems to have hung around the same area most of its life cycle.
Energetically, ammonites offer protection and are believed to neutralize negative energy. As its form replicates the unending cycles within the Universe, it reminds us that we too are part of this unending cycle, teaching us of the intricacies of our lives and all the connections that exist within our lives.
