We got sent a copy of the amazing “Travels with Trilobites” by world-renowned expert on the Trilobita Andy Secher. What a fantastic book! Trilobites are regarded by many scientists as being one of the most successful animals to have ever existed and their fossils are absolutely fascinating as well as stunningly beautiful. We can’t wait to read and then review this superbly illustrated guide to all things Trilobita!
