the Cambrian period 543 mya to 510 mya

The Cambrian is divides into epochs, the earliest to latest is a,b,c,d

Very early in the Cambrian the sea floor was covered by a “mat” of microbial life above a thick layer of oxygen-free mud.

The continents were shifting apart after the super continent of Rodinia that started to drift apart 700-650 Mya

The Cambrian's Continents were arranged into two large Continents, Gondwana and laurentia

All life during the Cambrian was under water
Amomalocaris was the largest predator of, and only lived in the Cambrian period

This period was part of the age of invertebrates

Life diversified in the Cambrian. Alge turned into red and green alge

The Cambrian period started with a mass extiction

The extinction was caused by a lack of oxygen in the ocean

Trilobites first appeared toward the end of the cambrian

In the early Cambrian, Earth was generally cold but was gradually warming as the glaciers of the late Proterozoic Eon receded.

the middle Cambrian was started by a extinction

hard-bodied brachiopods, which resembled clams; and arthropods — ancestors of spiders, insects and crustaceans evolved during this time

The end of the period was marked with a mass extinction
