Bag of Prehistoric Fossils

Share

Hold the past in your hands.

You want to know the real circle of life? Everything that was in the past becomes the paperweights for the things that are in the present. That means, in the future, when humankind has evolved into space-faring, giant, monkey-chickens, all your stuff will just sit on their desks. But today is the present, so you don’t have to worry about the future just yet. For now, be content with putting the past on your desk. And no easier way than with a Bag of Prehistoric Fossils!

Fossils!

With each Bag of Prehistoric Fossils, you’ll get four different fossil species. Let’s list ‘em, just for fun.

  • Crinoids (Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Echinodermata) – Also known as sea lilies and feather stars
  • Gastropods (Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca) Also known as snails and slugs
  • Ammonites (Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca) Extinct group of marine animals. Closest living relatives are the octopus, squid, cuttlefish, and nautilus.
  • Clams (Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca) Delicious when fried (but then, isn’t everything?)

Fossils!

See, you get all sorts of good remnants from the past. Also, you get a scary thing from the present: a shark’s tooth. Why? Because sharks predate the dinosaurs (yikes). So, grab a Bag of Prehistoric Fossils and hold prehistory in the palm of your hand.

Please Note: Because these are real fossils (and not like Grandma or the snack chips you found in your sofa cushions), expect natural variations if you order more than one. Life is too diverse and wonderful to look mass produced.
