Yet another ammonite. There are no fossil records for any part of an ammonite other than their curly shells (and a small, mysterious clamshell-shaped bodypart occasionally found in association with them.) 
So, what they looked like is a legitimate subject for conjecture - their closest living relatives are squid (not nautili) and this is a pretty conservative guess as to what they might have looked like. I might try an alternative design next time - one with more face armour.
