"Dining out with the Trilobites"

 

Presented by Tom Rich

 

A lot of new research has uncovered some incredible science
about these extinct fossils. I spend a great deal of time everyday
trying to follow all the latest discoveries. We all assume these
charming little critters ate worms, bugs, and of course detritus
(waste), but have you ever wondered what the larger “critters”
ate? We know the “food demands” of an elephant and they
certainly cannot maintain their mass on peanuts alone. Well, the
fifteen inch Boston trilobite certainly was not eating beans, so
tonights lecture will reveal the recent discoveries about the their
diet. There will be no Pebble Pups meeting, but I certainly hope
the members will enjoy this presentation.
