Thanks so much for all the good C&C's for the Ammonite upload.
Here's another fossil from my little collection, a Trilobite.
This is Macro shot, the specimen just 2" in length.
Trilobites are remarkable, hard-shelled, segmented creatures
that existed over 520 million years ago in the Earth's ancient seas.
They went extinct before dinosaurs even came into existence, and are
one of the key signature creatures of the Paleozoic Era, the first era to
exhibit a proliferation of the complex life-forms that established the foundation
of life as it is today and are found in the rocks of all continents.
Thanks for looking folks.
