Taylor Made Fossils molded these beautiful trilobites in the summer of 2008. They were both in very nice condition, well restored with every appendage visible and clear. Either of these casts will add to anyone’s trilobite collection.
The original fossils (pictured) that these were molded from are now sold, but resin cast replicas are available for $20 for an unpainted cast or $35 for the painted version.
Trilobite means three lobes, and their exoskeletons are divided into-you guessed it!-three parts lengthwise. The middle (axial) lobe protected the digestive system while the outer (pleural) lobes are where the legs attached.
This specimen shows that these animals are also divided into three major sections, starting with the head (cephalon) then the accordion-looking thorax, pygidium bringing up the rear.
This now-extinct group of marine arthropods roamed the oceans for years. Simple but successful.
