  • Official Inktober Prompt: Coat
  • Doodlewash Prompt: Bones

Did you know that fossils aren’t really bone? Over the years, minerals from the ground seep into the bone.

They sort of coat it, sink it, and gradually replace it.

  1. i did not know that fossils aren’t really bone until my very wise wife informed me of this fact. Neither did some of my coworker, when they saw the drawing she did for me.

  2. Your wonderful illustration confirms the fact that matter and energy simply change, over time. So great how these fossils preserve themselves and Nature continues to teach us about how life evolves.

  3. I also did not know that fossils aren’t really bone. Thanks for educating me on this interesting fact ! I like your “bony” creature.
