An extinct nautiloid cephalopod that lived 370 to 450 million years ago. Its name means, “straight horn” due to its long, straight, conical shell. They ranged in size from about a centimeter to over 14 ft long. They have 2 special characteristics worth noting. One is their septa, which is the straight black line running down the middle of their shell. This is a dividing wall that formed as the Orthoceras grew, to divide the old living chamber from the new one. The second is the siphuncle, which is a tube that runs the entire length of the shell, through each of the chambers. This tube acted as a buoyancy device. The closest living relatives to this extinct species are the nautilus, squid, octopus and cuttlefish. Orthoceras fossils are commonly found on a matrix of limestone, usually with many individuals grouped together.
