Upper Cretaceous period
This is a Calycoceras tarrantense ammonite from the Cretaceous.
But this one has a rare bonus in the exposed, broken outer whorl...
At first glance I assumed it was a section of crab claw. But it is the same black fossilized chitinous material as what could be the beak or mouth part of the ammonite. No other parts were found associated with it and the cleaning off of the outer whorl stopped at the uncovering of the part. And I'm fairly certain that what you can see here is all there is.
And of course it is mostly solid calcite as is typical with ammonites found in that particular layer of the Woodbine fm.
This ammonite measures 2.75" (7 cm) in diameter and comes with a laminated ID tag.
