Fossil Starfish

Fossil Starfish

Starfish are one of the oldest group of animals in the fossil record. Their iconic body shapes have remain relatively unchanged through hundreds of millions of years, which is a testament to their evolutionary success.

This specimen is an Ordovician Petraster Starfish, which lived over 440 million years ago. Members of the genus could be found all over the world and resembled modern starfish in shape and behavior. These particular starfish come from the Katoua Formation in Morocco.

Please Note: Pictures on this page show typical specimens. They vary between 2 and 5 inches in size and may include smaller marine fossils alongside the main starfish. The shapes and colors of the starfish can vary, but they are all beautifully detailed pieces of the ancient ocean. Included stand may be clear acrylic or black metal depending on the thickness of the fossil.
