Pair Of 7"+ Megistaspis Trilobites - Fezouata Formation, Morocco

This is a pair of large, Megistaspis trilobites from the Fezouata Formation of Morocco. Both are almost the exact same size at 7.8" long and they are located on a 10.4 x 8.4", unbroken piece of shale. No restoration on this piece.

Comes with a display stand.

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 with over 25k currently described species, filling nearly every evolutionary niche. Due in large part to a hard exoskeleton (shell), they left an excellent fossil record.
