We spend a lot of time on this site discussing fossils. And why would we do such a thing?

Do we even need to answer that?

They are gateways into the past, time-traveling artifacts, and objects where fact and imagination turn into creatures of fantastic possibilities. Also, did we mention that dinosaurs rule?

And how do we know this?

As it is over 65 million years since the last dinosaur walked the Earth, it's a miracle that we know about them at all. How much of a miracle, exactly? Let OWLconnected's General KnOWLedge explain as we break down what goes into the making of fossils.
