Life has endured for a finite number of years on the earth. Little markers here and there can be found within the written history of the earth within the layers of rock. These little mile markers, or fossils, aid in the timeline of geologic history. The fossil record shows not only the flora and fauna living in the area, but allow for the understanding of the environment and how it's changed through time.
Have a look through our fossils, wonder over the delicate structure of the vertibrates and you might find a spineless friend who won't disappoint you.
