THE FOSSIL WORM
❃ Hallucigenia is a bizarre-looking creature that lived during the Cambrian period, about 505 million years ago. It was discovered in the Burgess Shale, a fossil deposit in British Columbia that is famous for its exquisitely preserved soft-bodied organisms
❃ At first glance, Hallucigenia looks like a creature from another planet. It has a long, narrow body with seven pairs of spiny legs that stick out in all directions. Its head is shaped like a hammer, with a circular mouth at the end that is surrounded by sharp teeth.
❃ Despite its unusual appearance, Hallucigenia is an important organism for understanding the early evolution of life on Earth. Its combination of primitive and advanced features has made it a key player in debates about the origin and diversification of animal life.
