Product Details


  Trilobite Fossile Archeology 2-3 Inch Specimen
 

  The study of complex creatures that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago takes us to the trilobite.  Trilobites were the first complex creatures to possess a hardened exoskeleton.  During the Cambrian period which began some 570 million years ago, an estimated 10,000 species of trilobites existed.  At the end of the Paleozoic Era about 220 millions years ago, trilobites became extinct.  Today, the only way we can learn about these interesting creatuers is by studying their fossil remains. 
 
Trilobites had three lobes, or segments: cephalon (head); thorax (body); and pygidium (tail).  They ranged in size from .2 inches up to as large as two feet long.  Genus: phacops
 
Origin: Northern Africa
