Here is an example of Eurypterus remipes from the Upper Silurian of New York. This particular type of fossil has been designated the ''State Fossil Of New York''. Eurypterids, or ''sea scorpions'', were the terrors of the Silurian seas. This specimen displays the head, body, and even some walking arms and swimming palles are preserved. The dark grey fossil contrasts wonderfully with the light grey matrix. The extinct arthropod is well showcased on the plate of dense limestone that also contains a large, partial paddle. This is a very affordable specimen of this unusual Silurian arthropod.
