Large Scyphocrinites Elegans (Sea Lilly) Fossil
11.5x10.5” Double Sided
Crinoids are a group of ancient fossil that first appear during the mid Cambrian about 300 million years before the first dinosaurs showed up. Despite commonly being called "sea lillies," crinoids are actually animals instead of plants.
Crinoids lived through the Mesozoic and even survive to present day, though there are differences in their modern counterparts. They are a true feat of evolution, having lived through some of the worst mass extinction events to affect our planet.
