(LDO) – The monster with the same body as the alien creature in the movie has “appeared” completely intact, which is very absurd because it is a mollusk.
According to Science Alert, a new species fossil, named Tomlinsonus dimitrii, has been discovered near the eastern shore of Lake Simcoe in Southern Ontario – Canada, a world-famous “fossil mine”.

This monster is quite small – body length is only 6 cm – but has an extremely strange shape: No eyes, possesses an ornately patterned shield on its head, 2 curved horns covered by its feather-like spines, the segmented body resembles that of modern arthropods such as insects and spiders.

In its pairs of limbs there is also an unusual pair, extremely long, attached below the head, at the end of which are two “feet”.

The monster belongs to an extinct group of arthropods that lived about 450 million years ago, or the Ordovician period – a team of scientists led by researcher Joseph Moysiuk from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM – Canada) said.

But the most shocking thing about this little monster is not the bizarre shape, but the way it has appeared intact in the fossil, as new “through the air” from 450 years ago to the modern world. Because it is a mollusk.

Usually only hard materials can be fossilized, for example dinosaur bones, egg shells. The fact that soft tissues are preserved is extremely rare in the world, completely intact preservation like this is almost unbelievable.

The researchers believe that this particular case can only occur when some unusual, catastrophic event rapidly “freezes” the organism, most likely a sudden flood of mud, then the thick mud flows continuously accreted. This is how the shocking petrified remains of Pompeii were made – people covered in volcanic ash in an instant.
