Trilobites means “three lobes”, and Trilobites are a well-known fossil group of extinct marine arthropods(like ants, spider, lobsters,prawns and most insects). Trilobites form one of the earliest known groups of arthropods. The first appearance of trilobites in the fossil record is in the Early Cambrian period (521 million years ago), and they flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era. The trilobites were among the most

successful of all early animals, roaming the oceans for over 270 million years.
