Pictures of fossils, fossil finds from Everything Dinosaur field trips, photos of fossils sent in.
Today from our collections vault we have some trilobites. Trilobites are a well-known fossil group of extinct marine arthropods that form the class Trilobita. Trilobites form one of the earliest known groups of arthropods. Trilobites had many life styles; some moved over the sea-bed as predators, scavengers or filter feeders and some swam, feeding on plankton. #ScienceVault
