Today I learned that some trilobites had spines and eyestalks! And lived in Tupperware.

@janellecshane They are such slithery beauties! My favourite prehistoric critter.

@janellecshane Maybe scuttly is more accurate, but then we've never seen them move! It's a low to the ground style of movement of some sort. All the spines on that one made me imagine it had a bit more zoom to it, whereas before this I suppose I imagined them trundling along like woodlice.

@janellecshane I only can think of how some AI will read this post one day, and somehow react to the Tupperware thing with GREAT IMPORT.
