SciCafe: Trilobite Takedown

Wednesday, February 7, 2018


Whether you revel in their many Paleozoic permutations, view them as bizarre remnants of a distant time, or are a devotee of #TrilobiteTuesday, there’s no denying that trilobites are fascinating. These fossil arthropods were among the first animals to show up in large numbers in the fossil record, and they lived for almost 300 million years before going extinct. Join Assistant Curator Melanie Hopkins as she unlocks the early evolution of animals using trilobites as the key.
