Something Really Old

This is the first new posting after switching to a new provider/server. We now have SSL. Isn’t that cool & modern. So just a quickie…

I thought I’d share a pic of a fossil Trilobite I’ve owned for a long time now—I picked it up at a dinosaur exhibit in Dudley, of all places, during the Jurassic Park craze in the summer of 1993. Happy 30th Anniversary, prehistoric bug.


I believe this particular Trilobite is a Flexicalymene from the Devonian period (unless an expert can tell me otherwise), making it somewhere around 450 million years old. So, he looks a bit crusty. Who wouldn’t?
