What's Cool About Trilobites ?

Trilobites were one of the most diverse type of marine invertebrates that lived during the Paleozoic Era. They are extremely important, archetypal fossils symbolic of an archaic world that once dominated the ancient seas. They persisted for close to 300 million years -- almost twice as long as the dinosaurs.

The ancient sea is long gone, but with Devonian rocks exposed from near Albany to the western end of the state, New York has become a haven for Devonian Trilobite hunters from around the world.
