  • Abstract The taphonomic varieties of over 800 specimens of Kimberella (collected from the Vendian rocks of the White Sea region) provide new evidence of the animal's anatomy such as: shell morphology, proboscis, mantle, possibly respiratory folds and possibly musculature, stomach and glands. Feeding tracks, crawling trails and, presumably, escape structures preserved along with the body imprint provide insights on the mode of locomotion and feeding of this animal. The shield-like dorsal shell… CONTINUE READING
