This fossil frog is the first ever discovered in Antarctica, according to the new research published in the journal Scientific digs have unearthed the remains of less familiar. The fossils of dinosaurs, mastodons, mammoths and other creatures were pervasive parts of the natural landscape in the Greek and Roman periods, helping to account for why Greeks and Romans developed mythologies about giant creatures as they sought to understand the presence of these remains.

Fossils are the remains or imprints of prehistoric plants or animals. They are found in sedimentary rock (rock formed from sand and mud), coal, tar, volcanic ash, fossilized tree sap or frozen in ice.

Usually only the hard parts of plants and animals, like their bones and teeth, become fossils. Fossil Legends of the First Americans represents a major step forward in our understanding of how humans made sense of fossils before evolutionary theory developed.

Adrienne Mayor, an independent scholar of natural history folklore and the early history of science, is the author of The First Fossil Hunters: Paleontology in Greek and Roman. Fossils are the remains or traces of plants and animals that lived long ago.

Fossils give scientists clues about the past. For this reason, fossils are important to paleontology, or the study of prehistoric life.

Most fossils are found in earth that once lay underwater.Fossils are the preserved remains or traces of animals and plants. They form by a process called fossilization. Fossils are usually found in rock, but they can also be found in mud or gravel.

Most have lain buried for millions of years. The word fossil comes from the Latin word fossilis. That means “dug up,” and some fossils are discovered.

The female in question was Ida, a 47million-year-old primate, whose exquisitely preserved fossil was touted as the remains of our earliest human ancestor. She was, they said, the "link" between us.
