This storyboard does not have a description.
When a rabbit dies you might think it would just rot away, but this is what really happens.
The rotting carcass will be eaten by scavenging animals and eventually sink down underground and be decomposed by bacteria.
After more time, the hard internal skeleton is the only remains of the rabbit left, but over time this will decompose.
Much later, the mud and rock form over the skeleton which is dissolved by ground water, and the area where the carcass of the rabbit would have been, leaves a perfect mold of the rabbit.
Ground water minerals start to fill the skeleton. These minerals form a rock in the mold, that looks exactly like the rabbit.
The finished result is a perfect fossil. The imprint of the rabbit in rock!
