Fossils are defined as any evidenceĀ of prehistoric life. There are two types of fossils: Body Fossils include remains of skeletal bones, shell, carapace, test and teeth. Trace Fossils are clues the organism existed such as foot prints, tracks, burrows and coprolites (fossil dung).

Ornithopoda meaning “bird foot”, are a group of herbivous dinosaurs that first appear in the fosil record during the early Jurassic Period. Ornithopods disappear from the fossil record at the end of the Cretaceous period at the KPG (formerly KT) boundry, marking the beginning of the Cenozoic Era.
