Caption: Trilobites. Computer artwork of trilobites in the sea during the Devonian period. This lasted from around 408 to 360 million years ago. Trilobites were marine arthropods that were abundant between 500 and 200 million years ago. They had a pair of antennae and primitive compound eyes. They were bottom-dwellers, and scavenged for food on the seabed. At upper centre, three ammonites are seen, primitive cephalopod molluscs that were relatives of the modern-day nautilus. These animals were generated for use in the Devonian Ocean Simulator, an interactive virtual reality simulation of marine wildlife at this time.
