All About Michigan

Fossils are the remains, impressions or traces of organisms that existed millions of years ago. They are the remnants of organisms that have been naturally preserved, such as bones, teeth, scales, shells and skeletons. Usually, fossils are preserved in sedimentary rock and bodies of water. Fossils are important in understanding the history of the world because they provide physical evidence of animals and plants that lived in the past. Through their discovery, paleontologists uncover new ideas about former life on earth.

In today's All About Michigan, learn about our State fossil and an ancient creature that lived more than 10,000 years ago! Have a great weekend!
