Trilobites are fossilized marine arthropods; their name means “three lobed”, referring to their three-part body. They flourished during the Paleozoic period and later died out around 250 million years ago. Mostly they inhabited ocean bottoms as scavengers, although some species swam and fed on plankton. They can be found in Utah, where the Ute Indians wore them as an amulet, and are found worldwide in limestone and shale beds
