Now THAT'S Well preserved!
MUMMY DINOSAUR has 90% of its bones and 80% of its skin according to a
report in National Geographic news (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2002/10/1010_021010_dinomummy.html) 11 Oct 2002.
The Hadrosaur (duck-billed dinosaur) is so well preserved it has been
called a "mummy" rather than a fossil. As well as impressions of skin and
other soft tissues, the specimen contains the remains of its stomach
contents, a mixture of over 40 different kinds of plants including algae,
ferns, liverworts and angiosperms (flowering plants).
ED. COM. Such good preservation can only occur if a creature is rapidly
and deeply buried. Otherwise the structure of the soft tissue is
destroyed by micro-organisms, rather than turned to stone. This specimen
is good evidence of catastrophic flood burial. It also confirms such
dinosaurs lived and dined in a world of lush and varied vegetation,
similar to that described in Genesis prior to Noah sciencemag.org flood. (Ref.
