This one goes out to my buddy Pat.

He and I agree that trilobites are not to be trusted.

  1. That particular card was one of many that stumped me as a wee lad. You'd have to lie very, very still for quite a long time for trilobites of that size to do any serious damage.

    I was also entirely unaware that there was some manner of Dinosaur Devil involved in the Dinosaurs Attack! series.

  2. But but but trilobites are awesome! (and cute. but that's neither here nor there ...)

    Now an anomalocarid, those might kind of suck if they could come after you in swarms. Which is why I stole them ;3

  3. Trilobites aren't really fossilised; they're just biding their time. Patient, malignant, and ever-watchful they wait to regain the world they once bestrode like tiny beshelled colossi.

    (Three lobes and black moustaches (prehensile no less!): sure signs of infernal intent)

    Horrible way to go btw. *rasp, rasp, rasp, rasp* for hours

  4. I don't know what it is--maybe it's because they look an awful lot like giant cockroaches--but trilobites give me the serious willies. Hate to bump into a horde of those little buggers in some dusty corner of a dungeon.

    I can barely walk past a shoppe on the main street here that has a few trilobites and a nautilus shell in the window. I think that the trilobites play pinochle in that horrendous shell and plot their vile deeds there as well.
