What is known about fossils?

Fossils vary in size

Microscopic, single bacterial cells

Gigantic, such as dinosaurs and trees

Fossils normally are only a portion of the deceased organism

bones and teeth of vertebrates

hard exoskeletons of invertebrates.

Fossils may also consist of the

marks left behind by the organism

footprints

feces

Impression in rock


Fossils, Dinosaurs and Sea Monsters

What is known about fossils?

Only 1/109 become fossils

95% of fossils are marine invertebrates

4.75% of fossils are algae and other plant life

0.24% of fossils are insects and other invertebrates

0.01% are vertebrates, mostly fish

95% of mammal fossils deposited by the ice age


Fossils, Dinosaurs and Sea Monsters

Where are fossils found?

Most commonly found within sedimentary rocks

Sandstone, from grains of eroded rock

Limestone, from shell debris and planktonic skeletons;

Shale, hardened clay (deposited as mud).

Slate, shale exposed to heat and pressure

On very rare occasions within igneous rocks

Encapsulation before tissues are destroyed


Fossils, Dinosaurs and Sea Monsters

How are fossils formed?

Bone, feces, egg, etc.

Dissolved mineral deposits in pores

High pressure

Organism shapes, impressions, etc.

Dissolved mineral deposits in pores

Footprints, etc.

High pressure

Igneous rock impressions

Water under high pressure

Impossible without great flood
