Bargain Crotalocephalina Trilobite Fossils - 2 1/2 to 3 1/2"

These are 410 million year old, Crotalocephalina trilobite fossils collected near Atchana, Morocco. They have been prepared using airscribes to remove the hard limestone surrounding them and they look like they are ready to crawl off the rock. They measure between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2" long if outstretched.

These are real trilobite fossils but the preparation is rough compared to the ones we sell individually, hence the bargain price. Many have some shell weathering, or some degree of shell restoration.

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.
