The saint used such method to clear a land occupied by those little animals so an abbey could be built in there. Others say that ammonites are cephalopods that lived in the oceans from Middle Devonian (400 million years ago) to the Cretaceous (66 million years ago), when they became extinct. Their fossils are of great help when sorting and dating rocks with high accuracy.
