What Is Orthoceras?
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.
On a technical level most of the fossils people refer to as Orthoceras are not actually in the genus Orthoceras, but in other closely related genus'. For example the Devonian deposits in Morocco that produce most of the polished Orthoceras fossils have several genus including Michelinoceras and Arionoceras found in association. The look nearly identical so unless you are one of the world's leading experts on fossil cephalopods, good luck telling them apart.
