Curious about Redlichia Rex? 

Redlichia Rex is the largest trilobite to be discovered in Australia. It was found preserved in 513 million-year-old rocks on Kangaroo Island, South Australia.

Trilobites are shell crushing predators with a characteristically flat head and body, antennae,  and walking legs to help it crawl across the sea floor. 

“Redlichia rex would have certainly been the terror of the trilobites, and most other seafloor creatures for that matter. Bigger than a dinner plate, this species is one of the largest animals living in the oceans at that time.”
