Extinct ~ Trilobite
The story of life on Earth through the planet's major mass extinctions. In book three, it's Trilobites, some of the first anthropods. TV scientist Professor Ben Garrod makes top level science accessible to everyone, whether you're 8 or 80! He presents a unique exploration of the most iconic animals ever to walk, swim, waddle or stalk our planet in this collectable, full-colour eight-book series, illustrated by paleo-artist Gabriel Ugueto. 50,000 species of Trilobites had survived for over 300 million years, and two mass extinctions. Then came the End Permian mass extinction, now known as the Great Dying. The Trilobites were some of the first arthropods – animals with jointed legs – which now includes insects and their relatives. But then they were gone, with the greatest mass extinction ever leaving the oceans, lands and skies almost empty. Ben Garrod explores the Trilobites evolution, anatomy, behaviour, habitat and food chain to reveal what led to their extinction. With an additional 'Ask the Expert' section, stunning full-colour art on every page, glossary and pronunciation guide, each book will reveal a different extinction story, from mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega volcanoes, to over-hunting by humans and habitat destruction.
