Incredibly large Sea Scorpions once hunted in the ancient seas around Australia. Some of them were giants compared to humans.
A long time ago in Earth’s history between 500 million and 250 million years ago, animals with exoskeletons (shells on the outside of their bodies – similar to present-day crabs and lobsters) were exploring the seas.
Some of these creatures were the largest animals on Earth at the time.
Fossils have recently been found in Australia, of a giant scorpion-like creature over 2.5 metres long (about the size of a modern great white shark).
Luckily humans didn’t exist at that time – so no-one was swimming around in the sea.
