Why We Love Fossils
The Backyard Naturalist loves fossils. They can be breathtakingly beautiful and their histories are awe-inspiring to contemplate.A mysterious plant or animal, millions of years old, preserved in rock? Mind-boggling!
No two are ever alike, either. Because each specimen is unique, every individual collection is unique, too! This opens a world of opportunity for collectors at any scale.
Fossils Make Great Gifts
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind, thoughtful and inspirational gift, a fossil is a present anyone of any age will appreciate. A 100 million year old trilobite or fossilized Coprolite (dinosaur poop) could spark a child’s lifelong interest in the ancient world. For someone celebrating a milestone birthday, unwrapping a stunning, 270 million year old fossilized Chrysanthemum is guaranteed to make them feel younger by comparison!
