If you’ve ever gone for a walk in the fall, you’ve noticed something. When leaves fall from the trees, it doesn’t take long for them to curl up and start to crumble. And yet fossil leaves are flat and look like they were freshly picked!
How could this be? Well, it’s only possible if three things are true:
- The leaves were ripped off while the plant was alive.
- The leaves floated in water long enough for them to absorb some water.
- The leaves were then quickly buried.
