Palaeontologists create 3D digital model of ‘death drag’ left by prehistoric squid

An international team of scientists have uncovered the amazing story of a 150 million year old fossil ‘squid’ and have digitally recreated the fossil using 3D modelling technology.
...
The fossil is an ammonite, a type of prehistoric cephalopod related to squid and octopuses. They are found across the globe. What makes this ammonite stand out is the 8.5 metre long drag mark it has left behind. The ammonite was already dead when the drag mark was made making it an extremely rare find.
