Hi there, Today I was out exploring the coastal cliffs and shore around Folkstone, Kent and have made some unusual discoveries that id love some help identifying. I believe one might be a curled lobster tail or something along those lines the other is more of a mystery.

Hello Chris

Your first picture is actually a nice Nautilus specimen, the second specimen is a fragment of an Ammonite. Hope this helps.

Hello Chris, I agree, Nautilus and partial ammonite.

Thanks for all for help identifying! Am i right in thinking Nautilus avoided extinction hence why they are still in our oceans but can also be found fossilised unlike ammonites?

Yes, Chris, that is correct. Only about a handful of nautilus species around today though.
