Paleo Profile - Sea Scorpions

  • Published on: 14 September 2016
  • Today we examine the amazingly bizarre group of prehistoric arthropods, the Eurypterids or sea scorpions of the Paleozoic. We answer questions like: Where they really scorpions? How large did they get? And what are they exactly?

    A lot of illustrations used in the video belong to Satoshi Kawasaki, great thank you to him for illustrating many obscure animals

    maybe they molt and mate in the same place so the newly borns can eat the molted shell and have more calcium (crayfish do it to their own shells, so this doesn't seem to farfeched)

    I want to know more about the adaptation of internal gps in animals. Can you cover how bees find their way home, how these or extant crabs (also modern whales, monarch butterflies, grunions) know when / where to find these safe sies and how these traits would've evolved? I'm in bioscience and I've heard it brought up over and over but never heard how it happened!TREY the Explainer can explain anything <3
