DICRANURUS MONSTROSUS TRILOBITE
Atlas Mountains, Morocco
DEVONIAN PERIOD: 395 - 345 million years ago
SIZE 5.5 INCH X 5 INCH matrix
The Dicranurus trilobites are some of the most fascinating and
bizarre trilobites ever found.
Spines and shapes vary and it's easy to see how the monstrosus
species here got its name as they seem truly like small "monsters".
The specimen offered here is from the Lafhira area of the Atlas
Mountains of Morocco, North Africa.
They were shallow-dwelling marine animals that crawled across the
prehistoric ocean floors nearly 400 million years ago.
The horns were left in the sediment .
