Cornuproetus Trilobites

Cornuproetus trilobites are a very uncommon trilobite from the Devonian period.  They lived some 400 million years ago and were among the earliest creatures with fully developed eyes.  Curnuproetus trilobites have been found as fossils over the past several years and some have been found completely rolled into a ball with only their spines sticking out.  It is thought that this was for protection.

Large African Trilobites - You would not want to squish one with your foot!

Trilobites were some of natures most successful creatures.  They survived for over 270 million years.  They took on many sizes and shapes.  This week we will give a look at many different types and adaptations.

Cambropallas Telesto trilobites are known to have inhabited the earth during the Cambrian Period 500 million years ago and were among some of the largest trilobites of that, or any time.  They are most commonly found in the Sahara Desert area of northern Africa.

These trilobites are most often found in Morocco, where they are also faked because of the ease to replicate them.  You must be cautious in purchasing them because there are so many fakes on the market.

From beginning to end, preparing a fossil is the ultimate jigsaw puzzle.  This is a 52" long prognathodon skull that was just prepared by us.  This monster is the largest member of the mosasaur family.  These amazing creatures roamed the seas at the same time as T-Rex roamed the seas.  This blog will follow us through many of our fossil projects, as well as share fossil news and discoveries.
