  1. order eurypterida

    Order Eurypterida, often referred to as sea scorpions, is a group of extinct arthropods that are related to modern spiders, scorpions, and horseshoe crabs. They existed from the Silurian to the Permian periods and were the largest known arthropods to have lived, with some reaching over 2 metres long. Eurypterids were aquatic creatures that inhabited both fresh and saltwater environments. While most species were carnivorous, some might have been detritivores. Their body structure is generally characterized by a large, flat carapace, segmented body, and two large, paddle-like appendages for swimming.
