Goniatites are an extinct species of ancient marine animal that evolved approximately 400 million years ago. Flourishing in the Devonian period, goniatites now act as important zone, or index, fossils to geologists who use them to identify rocks of that period. This specimen was excavated in modern day Morocco.
