A kind of fossil where an animal or plant leaves only its body impression in the mud?
This is called a trace fossil. or a mold.
A Fossil is the remains (or an impression) of a plant or animal that existed in a past geological age A trace fossil is the burrows, trails, etc, of an animal. A trace fossil is where something left a mark on something else, and then became fossilized. A body fossil is a fossil of a once living thing.
A fossil is evidence of a once living animal. A fossil is created when an animal dies in a mud or other soft dirt or sediment. Over time, the animal will decompose and leave the bones. Over time, these bones will get covered by dirt, rocks water, etc. After a couple thousand years the bones will get compressed into sediment, waiting to be discovered. Something similar to a fossil is and imprint. This is where…
When an animal or plant dies it lays in the dirt for millions of years. Over this time more and more dirt settles on top of it and compresses down harder and harder. Eventually the bones of the animal or harder parts of a plant are turned to rock or sometimes just leave an impression of themselves in a rock
Its a Noun, and here is the definition: A fossil formed when an animal, plant, or other organism dies and is covered by sediment, it flesh decays and bones deteriorate due to chemical reactions, and a cavity remains below the ground surface; the cavity's interior surface is an 'impression in the general form of the original organism's exterior surface.
Does the fossil record support the idea of evolution or the idea that God created each kind of plant and animal individually?
Fossils are made of rock yes. Most commonly this happens when a living organism (plant or animal) dies and its body is buried in mud before it has a chance to decay. The mud hardens into rock quickly, while the dead body slowly breaks down and leaves behind a hollow impression in the now solid rock around it. This kind of fossil is called a mold fossil, as the hollow remains empty like a jello…
