The earliest ammonites appear during the Devonian, and the last species vanished in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, a geological period that lasted from about 145 to 66 million years ago.

The name "ammonite", from which the scientific term is derived, was inspired by the spiral shape of their fossilized shells, which somewhat resemble tightly coiled rams' horns.
