Research led by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History shows that ammonites-an extinct type of shelled mollusk that's closely related to modern-day nautiluses and squids-made homes in the unique environments surrounding methane seeps in the seaway that once covered America's Great Plains. The findings, published online this week in the journal Geology, provide new insights into the mode of life and habitat of these ancient animals.
