Great Index Fossils Tell a Tale of History

Index fossils are very important to geologists because they help to tell the tale of our Earth’s history. Geologists use these specific fossils to determine the relative age of rock layers and to correlate those rock layers worldwide. Sound far-fetched? It isn’t really. Some fossils have such unique characteristics that if you find them, you know exactly where you are in the age of Earth. Good index fossils lived for only a short period of time but lived all over the world.

The Earth’s Biggest Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs include some of the largest land animals ever to roam the Earth. The Age of Dinosaurs began approximately 245 million years ago. A mass extinction 65 million years ago ended the reign of these creatures. Some dinosaurs were as small as today’s dogs and chickens, while others stood over five stories tall. Scientists believe that large dinosaurs were able be reach their massive sizes due to a huge metabolism.
