“A portion of deep-fried ammonites, please!” If ammonites still existed today, humans would probably be their worst enemy. We could order ammonite rings instead of calamari at the Greek or Italian restaurant around the corner. It is quite possible that the ammonites tasted very similar to today’s squid – or perhaps even better?

At times, the biomass of ammonites in the oceans probably amounted to several hundred million tons, and it is clear that this delicacy attracted enemies. But who was after the ammonites and how can we know after such a long time?
