Trilobite on a seabed. Computer artwork of a Olenoides serratus trilobite crawling among prehistoric Vauxia sp. (branching) and Wapkia sp. (tubular) sponges on the seabed, 500 million years ago during the Middle Cambrian period. Trilobites are extinct hard-shelled, segmented arthropods that lived between the Cambrian and Permian periods around 542-250 million years ago. They were mainly bottom-feeding scavengers and are considered one of Earth's earliest, complex life-forms.
