Specimen of Fantasy ear-shaped.
Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology, Chinese Academy of SciencesCambrian explosion recently discovered a contract in Weifang, Shandong. A peculiar bug 500 million years ago, the head of this ancient bug resembles a pair of rabbit ears. Scientists named it”ear-shaped fanciful”.
Sun Zhixin, a post-90s graduate student at the Nangu Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who participated in the research, said that the 500 million-year-old”rabbit ear bug” was named”Fantasy”, partly because of the growth of this bug. It’s too weird. If you don’t see it with your own eyes, it’s really hard to imagine. On the other hand, I want to use research to pay tribute to Jay Chou’s classic album.
According to the introduction, Phantxis auricula is a kind of ancient arthropod trilobite. In the Cambrian period 500 million years ago, trilobites were well-deserved”overlords of the ocean.” The surface of their body is covered with a strong carapace, like a warrior in armor. From its emergence 520 million years ago to its extinction 250 million years ago, trilobites have survived on the earth for about 270 million years, showing the tenacity of vitality.
