Crotalocephalina & Reedops Trilobites - (Special Price)

This is a very aesthetic, natural association of two Crotalocephalina gibbus and a Reedops trilobite from Atchana, Morocco. The specimens has been painstakingly prepared to remove the surrounding limestone, leaving the trilobite fossils perched in an beuatiful display. All of the trilobites would be around 2 1/2" long, if they had been outstretched, but they are all curled over. Almost no restoration, just a few touchups along the repaired cracks.

Be sure the check out the video.

Trilobites were a very diverse group of extinct marine arthropods. They first appeared in the fossil record in the Early Cambrian (521 million years ago) and went extinct during the Permian mass extinction (250 million years ago). They were one of the most successful of the early animals on our planet: over 25,000 species have been described, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to their hard exoskeletons (shells), they left an excellent fossil record.
