    Here’s another trilobite I purchased from a museum gift shop. I’m pretty sure this one is Elrathia. #fossil

    • This one was also from the Wyoming Dinosaur Center gift shop, by the way.

    • Does anyone know how to uncover a fossil in such a clear and clean manner like this?

    • @susy-quinn I think the trilobites I buy in the museum gift shops are all prepared, meaning people have used drills and chemicals to clean them up. I’ve never found one in the field as complete as this, but I have split open rocks to reveal parts that are relatively clean. You can check it my specimens to see examples. 😁
