Love this, poor trilobite :(

I like how you make it seem like it's in a high speed chase, very dynamic and interesting to imagine.
Would suck to be that... Trilobite, is it?

Although this is an athropod, it's almost like you could see the beginning stages of fins in this animal, which makes me speculate whether the first coordinates were arthropods.

Anomalocaris is believed to have evolved from onychophora that had gill-bearing flaps above their legs, which eventually became functional fins.

Chordates, not coordinates.  And the first chordates were certainly not arthropods.  Apart from sharing common ancestry in the earliest of bilaterian, the relationship between the two phyla ends there.

These things were super-tiny and harmless like the Opabinia, right?
Olorotitan's avatar
it's about a meter in lenght. I'm not really sure that it's super-tiny. 
Enneigard's avatar
A meter is good. Not sure if it can bite off fingers, but still.
