Ancient Crustacean in Paris

Extinct Crustacean on the Facade of the Museum of Paleontology, ParisParis ~ October 14, 2008
Extinct Crustacean

I found this ancient crustacean high on the wall at the Paleontology Museum in the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. I have no idea what it is (and what a lovely flowing tail it has), but if you do, I'd love to hear it. For some reason the digital camera makes it look closer to the ground than it is. The museum door is so ornate, it's almost possible to overlook the critters on the facade. Once again, we arrived at the museum too late in the day to go in. (Sorry about the focus, it was getting dark.) From images I've seen of the inside of the museum online, it is a paleo-fan's paradise.
