Other Fossils

FOSSILS are the preserved remains, impressions, or traces of living things – plants or animals - of a former geologic age. They are among the most valuable sources of information about the Earth's history, telling us about organisms that lived from about 3.8 billion years ago to the present. Fossils teach not only about the creatures and plants of our distant past, but how they grew, what they ate, how they interacted, and many aspects of their behavior. Fossils teach us how life evolved on earth, including human life.
