Ammonites In Spotlights

Ammonites are popular because they are well known. They show up in all sorts of pop culture arenas including the Jurassic Park Facebook game, the Walking with... series (if only as a floating shell briefly) and have even been morphed into Pokemon. Perhaps one of the most interesting areas that ammonites have flooded recently is the plush and crochet markets. Strangely, their simple body plan and the prolific fossil history have combined to allow them to be easily made into stuffed animals made from fleece and yarn. I think there is no better logical stopping point in proving how versatile and popular ammonites are.
