Only fossils that are over 100,000 years are considered as a
Minerals would seep into the decaying bone and this process
of fossilization is known as permineralization with filling up of spaces with
Today scientists have found soft tissue in 195-million-year-old
Amazing to find preserved organic protein, Palaeontologists
say they’ve found collagen, a protein.
Most animals did not fossilize, as they just decayed and
only small percentage of animals will be found fossilized.
