Physical appearance and biologyEdit
Isotelus was a giant trilobite. Like all the other arthropods during the Ordovician, it had a large and thick carapace. Underneath its armour was a soft underbelly with a pair of long antennae and small legs.
Isotelus had large, compound eyes. The trilobite was black in colour but underwater, it appeared light blue.
The next day, as Nigel sailed into the open waters, a living Isotelus swam beneath his speedboat. He later threw the Trilobite cam into the water and waited for a Cameroceras to appear. As he waited, a Megalograptus attempted to feed on the carcass but it was deterred.
Later, a Cameroceras appeared and ate the Isotelus.
Behind the scenesEdit
Isotelus is never named on the show, but is called a trilobite instead. Its name was revealed in Sea Monsters: Prehistoric Predators of the Deep instead.
