Belemnites are an extinct group of cephalopods which were common during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, and their fossils are abundant in Mesozoic marine rocks making them among the most popular and easily found fossils around the world. Often associated with ammonites, belemnites were similar to squids and the only had part to their bodies were shells which the organism lived in. They became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period along with the ammonites with the variety of fossilised shells being all that remained of them, often being collected by children, amateur and professional fossil collectors along Jurassic coast lines.
