Fossils are the preserved evidence of plants or animals and must be over 10,000 years old to be considered such. The two types of fossils are body and trace fossils. Body types are the preserved physical remains of an actual plant or animal. Trace fossils are the remains of the activity of the animal, such as preserved impressions, footprints, fossilized egg shells, or nests. We at Fossil Age Minerals offer an extensive selection of animal and plant fossils. We enjoy educating the novice and can help identify unique specimens.
