Fossil Starfish - SOLD 6.48" Petraster Trio

Fossil Starfish - SOLD 6.48" Petraster Trio

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

This specimen is a 6.48" Ordovician Petraster Starfish, which lived over 440 million years ago. Two smaller starfish are also present within the fossil matrix. Members of the genus could be found all over the world and resembled modern starfish in shape and behavior. This particular starfish comes from the Ktaoua Formation in Morocco.
