Trilobites were an exclusively marine group of arthropods that appeared in the Cambrian Period and persisted throughout the Paleozoic, eventually becoming eztinct in the Permian Period. Most were small, bottom-dwelling organisms that fed on organic matter in sediment on the sea bottom. The body is divided in three segments: head (cephalon), middle (thorax), and tail (pygidium). Many species had large, compound eyes.
