Trilobites are an extinct marine arthropod that lived from about 521 million to 252 million years ago, making them one of the most successful animals ever to live on Earth. There were over 17,000 different species and their fossils are found in ancient seabeds worldwide. Peronopsis' are unique among trilobites because they're head (cephalon) and booty (pygidium) are very similar. These little cuties didn't grow much bigger than a few millimeters long and were eyeless.
