Baculites are a genus of cephalopods that originated in the late Paleozoic Era and became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period along with the dinosaurs. A relative of the ammonite and modern squid, Baculites shells were straight and compressed like a tapering rod, except for a few coils in the back. If preservation conditions are correct, the shell, which is made of alternating layers of aragonite and conchiolin, becomes fossilized.
