Shipping: 5 pounds ($300 insurance value)
Audience: 5th grade – adults
Included: One less-mineralized dinosaur bone (either leg or rib piece will be sent).
Instructions: One of the great “trade secrets” of paleontology is that many dinosaur “fossils” are still just bones! In fact, some leading fossil collectors even state that many of the dinosaur bones found in the Cretaceous layers are only 40% mineralized, with as much as 60% of the bone being original material–appearing “just like they were buried yesterday after scraping off just the outside layer of mineralization” (see Biddle, “Genesis as History,” p. 112).
