Trilobite’s prehistoric diet revealed: A glimpse into ancient ocean life

In a groundbreaking discovery, scientists have unveiled the dining habits of an ancient marine creature that roamed our seas 465 million years ago. Trilobites, armored and pill-bug-like, were previously a mystery when it came to their diet. However, a remarkable find near Prague has provided unprecedented insight.

Using cutting-edge technology, researchers peered into the preserved gut of a trilobite specimen and found a diverse array of shell fragments from small clams, crustaceans, and more. This suggests that these creatures were opportunistic scavengers, feasting on anything they could find on the seafloor, shedding light on their intriguing ecological role.
