painting: The Cambrian Ocean, Artist’s depiction of Cambrian life of the Saint John Group, 1995. J. Pennanen, Our Changing Earth, New Brunswick Museum. In this view of the Cambrian world, the giant trilobite Paradoxides regina dominates the scene. Smaller trilobites, brachiopods, ostracods and echinoderms are all part of the diverse fauna. The seafloor is marked by trails left by burrowing animals and bottom feeding mollusks.
