Meaning of 'Trilobite'
A trilobite is an extinct marine animal that lived during the Paleozoic Era, about 540 to 250 million years ago. The word "trilobite" is derived from the Greek word "trilobos", meaning "three-lobed". Trilobites had a three-body symmetry and were equipped with a hard external skeleton divided into three parts: a head, a trunk and a tail.
Trilobites were an important part of marine life during the Paleozoic era and came in many different shapes and sizes. They are now extinct and are only found as fossils. Trilobites are highly sought-after fossils among collectors and are also used for scientific purposes to understand life in the distant past.
