Who doesn't love seeing a little trilobite in stone? When we see them they remind us of the rich history of all who came to this earth, land, and space before us. This little sucker was in what is now called Denube, NY over 251 million years ago!
Trilobite, any member of a group of extinct fossil arthropods easily recognized by their distinctive three-lobed, three-segmented form. Trilobites, exclusively marine animals, first appeared at the beginning of the Cambrian Period, about 542 million years ago, when they dominated the seas. Although they became less abundant in succeeding geologic periods, a few forms persisted into the Permian Period, which ended about 251 million years ago. (reference 1)
