Orthoceras are an extinct marine predator that lived over 400 million years ago and could grow up to 14 feet long! It was a squid-like animal that lived in the end of a long, straight, cone shaped shell. As it grew larger, a new chamber on the shell would be made to live in and the smaller, interior chambers would be used to control buoyancy. In this ring, you are seeing a side view of the shell, so those lines are the walls that separated each chamber.
