Sea Scorpions

Sea Scorpions

THESE RELATIVES of modern scorpions and horseshoe crabs were found in freshwater and sea between 440 million and 250 million years ago. Sea scorpions used their paddlelike limbs to swim rapidly. The larger species grew up to 7 feet (2.1m) and caught fish with their huge pincers.

This sea scorpion, about 5 inches (12.5cm) long, became extinct about 250 million years ago.

The modern Limulus is similar to Mesolimulus - an extinct horseshoe crab that live in the sea about 150 million years ago.
