Orthoceras is an extinct cephalopods related to modern squid, octopus, and Nautilus. They are characterized by long, straight, conical shells, tentacles and the ability to use jets of water for locomotion. Orthoceras were one of the dominant orders of their time, and as a result ranged widely in size. The smallest were less than an inch (2.5 cm) long and one species grew to 14 feet (4.2 meters).Orthoceras disappears from the fossil record during the lower Triassic Period about 200 million years ago. Orthoceras fossils have a global distribution, occurring in any marine rock, especially limestones. Well-known examples occur in Morocco, Scandinavia, the Alps, and Iowa.
