What Is The Deal With Trilobites

Josh Welch

A trilobiteTrilobites are one of the most well known fossils, partly because they were preserved so well, but mostly because they can be found nearly everywhere! 

They were one of the most successful organisms that we know of, so why did they suddenly disappear after surviving at least 3 previous extinction events? 

This new series named PBS Eons explores the history of life on Earth and this episode about trilobites is only the first of many. 

Hosts Hank Green, Kallie Moore and Blake de Pastino will take you on an adventure to learn all about earths inhabitants from the dawn of life all the way to the end of the most recent ice age.
