The creatures, known as anomalocaridids, were giant predators (ranging from 2 to possibly 6 feet in length) with soft-jointed bodies and toothy maws with spiny limbs in front to snag worms and other prey,
and a series of blade-like filaments in segments across the animal’s back, which scientists think might have functioned as gills.
"They were really at the top of the food chain," said researcher Peter Van Roy, a paleobiologist at Ghent University in Belgium, and formerly at Yale. "The uncontested top predators of their time."

True that, but only if I get him first...those six footers might be dipping us some seaweed and calling it lunch. Captain Caveman may have coined the phrase "Don't go in the water!".
