fossils in my neighborhood
-from Joanna's notepad
This fossil excavation site is within bicycling/walking distance of my house.
Things of note in the article:
√ they found animal hair, which usually decomposes
√ it is pointed out that fossils are formed only under specific conditions, including rapid burial
√ it is noted that many species of large land animals all died out suddenly, they estimate 10,000-12,000 years ago
