Trilobites, true enigmas of complexity, are primeval crabs found in shale, evolved 500 million years ago. The exoskeleton is rigid and are sometimes found with antennae, appendages and complex eyes intact. There are approximately 20,000 different species, ranging in age from the early Columbian period to the end of the Permian period.

Trilobites were ancient creatures from age-old seas. These prehistoric beasties are sometimes called “insects of the sea”. They were the first to evolve sight, assisting their search for food. Their compound eyes had lenses of clear calcium carbonate. The Silurian trilobite could defend itself by rolling into a ball when threatened, ensuring that its shell, a protective coat of armor, was exposed to the predator.
