This makes it even older than the 7-foot long lobster Aegirocassis benmoulae found in Morocco, which lived approximately 480 million years ago and fed on plankton with a special filter system for feeding, both of which pre-date the first dinosaurs which appeared on the planet about 250 million years ago.
