    Trilobite Tuesday - Erbenochile issoumourensis is a spinose acastid trilobite with impressively tall schizochroal eyes. Poor little Diademaproetus sp. (left) is very plain by comparison!
     
    These specimens are from the Devonian (~397 million years), Morocco.

    And people, if you go to the Spiders Exhibit at the ROM, you will find even more amazing facts! To all those who have Arachnophobia, there is hope, as any phobia is curable with the right therapy. 😊

    Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day.
     
    Recognizing our institutional history & past practices, we’ve been taking small steps on the long road to reconciliation. We still have a lot of work to do but are working together to move forward. As a reminder on this important day that our Indigenous Peoples Gallery is now free to the public. We encourage everyone to visit this gallery to gain a deeper understanding of this land which is told through the vital stories of indigenous peoples.
