Opabinia regalis (Walcott, 1912)
British Columbia, Canada
Length: 7 cm (9.4 cm with proboscis)
Long before plastic and radioactive garbage filled the oceans, Opabinia patrolled the seafloor, snatching up soft prey with her trunk and then shoving them into her backward pointing mouth on the underside of her head.
