Anomalocaris

Anomalocaris a frightening predator that ruled the oceans 500 million years ago. Anomalocaris – meaning ‘abnormal shrimp’ – was the stuff of nightmares.

Anomalocaris



It was an invertebrate over three-feet long with a soft body, formidable grasping claws and a circular mouth lined with tooth-like serrations.

New evidence shows that it also possessed astonishingly large compound eyes, giving the creature powers of vision rivalling or exceeding that of most living insects and crustaceans.
