Trilobites are a well-known fossil group of extinct marine arthropods. The name Tri-lobe-ite refers to the three-part, longitudinal division of their exoskeleton. Trilobites form one of the earliest known groups of arthropods, which are invertebrate animals such insects, spiders, or crustaceans. These animals first appeared at the beginning of the Cambrian Period approximately 570 million years ago. They flourished throughout the early Palezoic Era and the decreased in diversity until their extinction in the late Permian Period 240 million years ago. The trilobites were among the most successful of all early animals, roaming the oceans for millions of years. Most of our trilobites are native to regions in Morocco.
