Dinosaur Skull found in Church. Definitely the cross section of an ammonite
So it's a cross section of an ammonite, sliced horizontally instead of the usual right/left halves?
Yes, kinda It was probably lying flat on the bottom with the planispiral coils in a horizontal position, the saw used was vertical and cut the fossil in half(?) How many slices depends on the thickness of the slabs, another slice of it was found in the church so there are at least 2 slabs.
The top of the shell was crushed, and the white parts on the left are part of the septa. The little green spots are where the siphuncle would be if it were preserved.
Nice catch, i saw the article and just didn't see it as vertebrate remains!!
