AMMONITE SHOWING POST MORTEM DEFORMATION - JURASSIC, SOMERSET.


Hildoceras lusitanicum Meister

Lovely example of an Ammonite that has undergone compression and distortion due to the effect of overburden on burial. The weight of sediment pressing down on the empty Ammonite shell has resulted in rupture along several of the sutures and the entire body whorl is contorted and twisted. The inner whorls remain totally unaffected. 

Jurassic, Upper Toarcian, 'Junction Beds'.
Hurcott district near Ilminster, Somerset.

Specimen : 7.5 cm. diam.
