What could you infer about an animal from fossil or jaw bone?
From the fossil or jaw bone of the animal, you can determine it's approximate age. You can also distinguish the species of the animal, its habitat, and significant injuries. Another thing you can find out is its preferred diet. Some animals are herbivores, omnivores, or carnivores. If it's a carnivore or omnivore, you can also find out if it was a scavenger or a hunter. The jaw can also tell you the size of possible prey that the animal caught and ate. Some animals have large strong jaws made for snapping. Others have jaws that can move side to side for grinding food. Still others have double hinged jaws that allow them to open their jaw really really wide and eat gigantic prey.

I suggest you visit either a doctor or the local free clinic if you have no insurance coverage. There will be an entry in the phone book for your town or a nearby town. …It may be a harmless cyst (assuming the lump isn't the result of something obvious like a hammer to the jaw). A cyst is small and round, not much bigger than a large pea, and it will float around a little. But you must get medical help.
It is a viral or bacterial infection in the parotid gland called parotitis, you may have a salivary duct stone/stones or it can be infected from poor oral hygiene. Being… that it is a salivary gland, sour will increase the pain, so will pinching it. Treatment consists of antibiotics, warm compresses, massaging the gland and try to express the content through the duct into your mouth and if it doesn't get any better, your doctor may have to drain it surgically.
either: cast fossil petrified fossil imprint fossil trace fossil
yes but they wouldn't be able to do anything or stand up
No. Because the brain is tissues, and not bone the brain can not be turned to stone, but decompose and wither away. - Mr. Seidshlag
Pecten fossils are mostly found on the east coast of the United States.
No, normally all traces of the bone are gone, leaving only the impression of where the bone was. This impression may be very detailed.
only the bones of the organism (or shell) well make a fossil because the bones are much more dense and well survive a beating better than flesh.
Scientists can learn from a fossil of animal by its age, diet, and physical characteristics, depending on the condition of the fossil. For example, scientists would not be abl…e to tell of a hominid was a new species or not if a few bones were missing, because of the fact that they could determine different or similar traits than other species of hominid.
As they are so hard and sharp it is able to crush bones
An animal bone becomes a fossil when it dies,just like the dinosaurs. Although, animals these days are not consitered fossils (yet). Fossils are really old bones, so animal bo…nes today can't be consitered fossils. The only way things can become fossils is for example a shell getting covered by a hard cover of dirt that dries over the shell. So the shell leaves an imprint in the hardened dirt.
The inference is that both continents were once one singleland-mass.
