Hello we found this on Bournemouth beach. It doesn't look like an ammonite, is it another type of fossilised shell?

Hi Peter and Dan
Very well done and a great find!
I would say by the look of your good image's you have found an internal cast / negative of were an ammonite has been.
Because you found your specimen on a beach were there is a lot of energy with the waves crashing onto the shore it has been broken, so next time you go fossiling have a look for the rest of it!
Thank you for your answer. We'll keep looking!
