An Anomalocaris Explores A Middle
Digital Art - Illustration
An Anomalocaris explores a Middle Cambrian ocean floor about 500 million years ago. Growing to over three feet long, Anomalocaris is believed to have been a predator whose diet included trilobites. Anomalocaris may have also been one of the earliest arthropods. This image includes an Olenoides serratus trilobite and sponges genus Vauxia and Wapkia. The small, flower-like animals (yes, like the sponges they are rooted animals) are from the genus Dinomischus. Above and behind the Anomalocaris is an ancient jellyfish.
