NAUTILUS
Age : 167 million years
Period : Jurassic
Location : Freshwater, Dorset, UK
Present-day nautili have exactly the same characteristics as those that lived millions of years ago. The fossil record shows that they have not changed down the ages?in other words, they never underwent evolution. One of the specimens showing this fact is the 167-million-year-old fossil nautilus pictured.
