Re: Burgess shale models/Trilobite molting habits killed 'em



Also apologising for an off topic post, there is an interesting news item at
:

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/11/021125072153.htm

concerning the molting habits of trilobites.   Danita Brandt argues that the
fact that trilobites didn't come out of the shell the same way every time
when molting might have contributed to their extinction.  Sounds a bit
speculative, but interesting nevertheless.  Also, I too would like to know
where to buy Burgess shale creature models.  Please contact offlist.
