Today’s podcast is a brief report on my personal favorite Burgess Shale animals: Anomalocaris and Opabinia.
|Anomalocaris - up to 6 feet long|
|Opabinia - less than 3 inches long|
And here is a link to the February 2014 news report mentioned in the podcast (thanks to Colleen Elliott for finding this). And another link, with photos.
UPDATE: from predator to filter feeder
