Details

Did you know that a fossil could be anything from a shell or bone to teeth or wood? From huge dinosaurs to tiny plants which can only be seen under a microscope? It covers everything from a preserved foot of the extinct Moa in New Zealand to a giant mammoth trapped and frozen in the ground in Siberia over 12,000 years ago.
