The Natural History Museum in London presents images of three trilobites from Morocco recently added to the museum collection. Unlike most fossils -- often flattened by the weight of surrounding sediment during fossilization -- these trilobites have been preserved with their structures intact. Images of these fantastic creatures (the big-eye, mega-spined, and trident trilobites) may be rotated 360 degrees. Viewers also have the option of downloading a 3-D bird's eye view of one of the fossils (a high-speed connection is recommended). The site also provides interesting background information on each fossil.
