Attention all fossil enthusiasts - are you fascinated by ancient creatures that once widely roamed our earth and oceans? You can own a piece of prehistoric history with these fossilized trilobites.
Best of all - you don’t need a time machine to get your hands on these ancient and unique specimens.
What Are Trilobites?
Trilobites are hard-shelled specimens that are classified as arthropods. They have many different genus, order, families, and species. These were exclusively sea inhabitants and once roamed in prehistoric oceans. Though the ancient trilobites are extinct, these creatures exist today in fossilized form. These invertebrate animals have a protective shell and would even roll themselves into the shape of a ball as a defensive mechanism.
Here are just a few of many interesting facts about these organisms:
- Over 20,000 species have been documented
- Trilobites have been found on every continent
- Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania all have a trilobite as their official state fossil
There is so much to learn about these ancient creatures.
If this piques your interest, Whaler’s Locker has you covered with a collection of trilobite fossils - any of which make the perfect Hawaiian gift at less cost than a plane ticket.
Trilobite Fossils: Unique and Niche Gifts
Fossils can be a unique gift - even more so when you learn more about what the animal has left behind. So what is a fossil all about anyway? Trilobite fossils can be created by the creature shedding its external shell and leaving a lasting imprint. It is rare to see a relic of the actual trilobite creature. This rarity makes them a wonderfully unique gift.
At Whaler’s Locker, we carry a variety of trilobite fossils, which have all been sourced from the Hamar L'Aghdad Limestones in the Anti-Atlas Mountains of Morocco. If you’re looking for another item to pair well with the trilobite fossil, check out our ammonite fossils - they are beautiful cephalopods from Madagascar.
