Trilobite, meaning "3 lobes", occupied different levels of the food web including predator, scavenger, and prey. Trilobites molted their exoskeleton much like lobsters of today and are one of the first animals known to have the sense of vision. Trilobites vary widely in size and shape. They can be so small enough to view with a microscope. They can also be quite large. Isotelus rex could grow 2 feet long. They are typically found by splitting sheets of shale and hard limestone deposits.
Each Master Replicas Group fossil replica is hand-cast and hand-finished at our facility in Pennsylvania, USA. Every replica is cast in super-strong Smooth-On resin for durability. Imported fragile polystone is never used in our recreations. MRG replicas are made to last a lifetime! Each Trilobite comes with its own Riker box.
