Accurate Sculpture Of Ancient Sea Creature

It's a face that only a mother could love. Agnostus pisiformis lived between 506 to 492 million years ago, ending its brief reign during the early stages of the Upper Cambrian period. These trilobite-like arthropods lived in huge numbers, leaving an abundance of fossilized traces in England, Scandinavia and Russia. Scientists have known about Agnostus pisiformis for centuries. It was first introduced to the literature in 1729 by Swedish scientist Magnus von Bromell, who described its weird appendages as "small beetle-like worms."
