Prehistoric Treasures

Friday, April 15, 2011

The amazing prehistoric exhibits on view in museums around the world are created from diverse scientific input derived from various paleontological finds. Most prehistoric animal fossil and non-fossil discoveries, including dinosaurs, are comprised of foot imprints, skin imprints, organ and soft tissue imprints, feathers, bodily effluence and fossilized bones, claws and teeth.

In extremely rare instances, the fossilized remains are almost intact. Since most discoveries are fragmented, it takes numerous scientific fields to reconstruct the size, characteristics and identity of the creatures unearthed and the educated assumptions necessary to accomplish this are not exact. Irrespective of any disparities, quality replicas and reproductions of prehistoric fossils offer a priceless opportunity toward the learning and discussion of the earth’s development. What better way to approach the future than to observe the past?
