The Kid Should See This

The Pseudo Fossil Challenge

Watch more with these video collections:

Pseudo means that something isn’t real. A fossil is “the preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms from the remote past.” A pseudofossil might be mistaken for a fossil, but was actually created from inorganic materials or impressions. See: Dendrites.

In this video, Mike Wilson of Mike Likes Science challenges The Dinosaur Show‘s Dustin Growick to figure out if the three presented objects are fossils or pseudofossils.

It’s The Pseudo Fossil Challenge. Make your own guesses before the answers are revealed!
