Animation of life on the seabed of a shallow sea in the Edicaran period. The Ediacaran lasted from 635-541 million years ago, and was the period immediately before the Cambrian. Life in the Ediacaran is not well understood, and most of the organisms disappeared in the Cambrian Explosion that followed, in which most of the current animal groups (and many others) evolved. The fossils that exist from this period are mainly of sessile sea pen-like animals and grazing mollusc-like animals, although their relation to these groups is not established.
