"Australian scientists on Thursday hailed the discovery of a pair of insect-like eyes belonging to a freakish prehistoric super-predator which trawled the seas more than 500 million years ago. Measuring three centimeters (1.2 inches) across and with a whopping 16,000 individual lenses, the fossilized eyes, from a huge shellfish-type creature called anomalocaris, were found in rocks on Australia’s Kangaroo Island."
