Fossil Mount FAQs

I’ve added a Fossil Mount FAQs┬ádocument to the top of the page. As the name suggests, this is meant to answer some of the questions about mounted fossil skeletons that I am regularly asked during outreach programs. Right now, the document mostly covers how mounts are created and how they can be interpreted, but I plan to expand the list of questions as needed. Please leave a comment if there is something you think should be included.
