What a nice day for a walk, I just wish that sun wasn't so bright, I can't see where I'm going!
AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!! Oh no!! I'm falling!!
Aw man! If I wasn't already dead my mum would kill me!
Millions of years ago dinosaurs roamed the earth...
Hey guys! It's me, Jimmy! Remember me from the rock cycle?
Sometimes they would die under the perfect conditions to create what we now call a fossil.
If the dinosaur is buried soon after death under layers of rock, mud, sand or volcanic ash, then a fossil can form.
I found a dinosaur fossil!!! I'm gonna take this back to the lab for analysis.
The body is buried under layers of sedimentary rock. The soft tissue (like skin, organs and muscles) rot away leaving only the bones.
The fossil rises to the surface and is exposed through erosion.
Millions of years Later!!!
Palaeontologists use these fossils to learn about where they came from and what it was like at that time.
