New SiteTrilobites, like the ones fossilized here, emerged more than 500 million
years ago in what’s called “the Cambrian explosion,” a period when large numbers
of novel species with skeletons, eyes and limbs evolved with remarkable
suddenness. Trilobites are so called because of the three parts, or lobes, of
their bodies. From Morocco. Credit : Andrew A. Sicree #GeologyHere #Fossil
