[In response to a post that says: "I guess a little more hand-holding is in order. When the soft tissue fossilizes, it gets replaced by minerals."]
here...let me help you...... scientists refer to a "fossil" as the preserved remains of a creature (usually thought to be ancient) that has been dug up. the word fossil, in Latin actually means "dug up." it has nothing to do with its mineralized state. a fossil CAN be mineralized (or not) but a fossil is just a dead animal that was dug up. now stop trying to teach me things -- it's not working. you don't have the chops.
