Trilobite - Cambrian

Trilobites are a type of extinct arthropod probably most closely related to modern Horseshoe Crabs. With a growing number of predators and adapted to diverse habitats, various species of trilobites developed complex eyes, retractable antennae, and even protective spines. Trilobites range in size from a fraction of an inch to over two feet in length. Their exoskeletons were composed of extremely hard calcite and calcium phosphate minerals to protect the soft internal organs, and as a result they are quite well represented in the fossil record. This specimen was found in Morocco. It’s 500 million years old (Cambrian Period).

These Trilobites make a beautiful and affordable addition to any collection. A fascinating peek into the depths of time, they make educational and inspirational gifts for young naturalists!

Individual fossils vary, but yours will resemble the pictured examples.
