Up for sale is a Reedops Trilobite from Morocco, North Africa. The trilobite measures 2 1/2. Reedops trilobites date back to the Devonian time period approximately 390 million years ago. These two trilobites are in a curled up position - these bugs would roll up into a ball sometimes, just like a modern-day rolly-polly! Included with the trilobites is a certificate of authenticity. A lot of trilobites are just found as partials and then they sculpt and paint the rest, which is very common. That does not appear to be the case with this piece as it appears to be all original. Another thing to be aware of with these trilobites - the way these trilobites are recovered is by breaking the rock and looking for something inside. If they find evidence of a trilobite inside, they will glue the rock back together and then prep out the trilobite. That's how they are able to get such well-preserved specimens. It's the fact that they are encapsulated in rock that preserves their great detail. So there may be those types of repairs present. This is a great fossil for any collection!
