This is a very beautiful eurypterid fossil. It is a complete Eurypterus remipes from the Silurian of New York. Eurypterus remipes is the State Fossil of New York, and is one of the most unusual arthropods in the fossil record. Eurypterids are thought to be one of the first aquatic animals to explore onto land. This specimen is large and complete with both paddles, long telson, and many ''walking arms'' preserved. The extinct arthropod is nicely showcased on the rectangular block of dense waterlime. This is a very striking eurypterid fossil that simply displays beautifully.
