Other cool things about Trilobites
People have been collecting them for at least tens of thousands of years, as they've been found in Native American burial mounds. One tribe has a name for them that means "Little water bug in a stone house."

There's a genus of trilobite found first in China named "Han" after the Chinese dynasty. There's one species in that genus that only has one single current fossil found, scientists named it "Han Solo." That sounds like a dad joke, and it probably is, but it's also true.

The extinction even that wiped out the last trilos (which we talk about on Eons) wiped out 90% of the species on Earth.
