Trilobites

Thought I'd give you a look at some of the trilobites we brought back from Utah.  Trilobites are an extinct marine arthropod from the Paleozoic era.  When I was trying to describe them to my sister I told her they looked like Egyptian scarabs, Mac says they were like prehistoric cockroaches.


Anyway, here they are.

  1. Fascinating. I think I like the fossils better than I would the living creature though ;)

  2. Their name makes them sound like some kind of hors d'oeuvre. Definitely scarab-like!

  3. They do look rather like scarab beetles. I suspect that Mac would enjoy the Jurassic coast of Dorset and Devon - have you been there?

  4. We have visited the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, have always meant to return.
