Eurypterid (sea scorpion) fossil from the Indiana State Museum.

This eurypterid (sea scorpion) fossil from the Indiana State Museum’s collection is from the Ordovician and Silurian periods. Its general shape is scorpion-like, with significant differences. Fossils of these predators are rare and almost always found as molt fragments.
