My frisky little Phacops with the crystal eyes

My frisky little Phacops with the crystal eyes
From the Silurian-Devonian, and that, folks, was a heck of a long time ago!
He was a kind of trilobite and he could see well. His big eyes had lenses made of rock crystal. If you don't believe me, google it.

No, like most of his kind, he's from North Africa. I've seen a few trilobites in situ in California, but none like him.
