Crabs / Lobsters / Shrimps

Crustaceans are arthropods, and include crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill and barnacles. They started out all the way back to the Middle Cambrian. Most of the earlier crustaceans are rare, but fossil crustaceans from the Carboniferous onwards are abundant.

We also have a dedicated fossil website with more fossils to choose from.
