The Big Freeze! (Petrification via Freezing)

Jump to: navigation, search

Freezing is a form of preservation that occurs when an organism and all it's remains are unchanged throughout time. The most well know frozen fossils that have been found would be of the Wooly Mammoth. These fossils are found in Siberia; with hair, soft tissue, organs, and even undigested vegetation in the stomach. Even though frozen fossils are very hard to find; the mode of preservation is quite remarkable.

It makes a lot of sense for these fossils to be in Siberia. It is tooooooo cold, at least for me. But I wonder how much more fossils are there that have not yet been discovered. Very interesting!!
