Adjust font size:

A handout image released in London November 21, 2007 shows a sea scorpion, a creature living before the age of dinosaurs. Scientists have found the fossilised claw of a 2.5-metre (8-foot) sea scorpion, a nightmarish creature living before the age of dinosaurs. The discovery of the 390-million-year-old specimen in a German quarry suggests that prehistoric spiders, insects, crabs and similar animals were much larger than previously thought, researchers at Britain's Bristol University said on Wednesday.
