Dinosaur World

Thursday, September 16, 2010


Day two of our fossil dig review... One of the many fossils we have in our Fossil Dig that you can take home with you as a momento of your trip is Amber.

Amber is fossilized tree sap. Somtimes, you can even find insect inclusions in our Fossil Dig amber. This is when insects were trapped in tree sap which then hardened and fossilized.

In the movie "Jurassic Park", scientists extracted dinosaur DNA from insects that had bitten dinosaurs and were trapped in amber.

We also have Amber jewlery for sale in the giftshop.
