Fossils are remnants of prehistoric life, naturally formed from animal bones, leaves, or shells. The imprints of plants or animals that were once alive create body fossils, whereas trace fossils show evidence of where an organism lived, such as tracks or burrows. Shells are of the most common fossil type, largely ammonites, having lived between 240 and 65 million years ago.
These fossilized Rhus Nigricans leaves are dated to the Eocene Period. It was collected from the Green River Formation in the Uintah County of Utah, in the United States. The Green River Formation consists of multiple lake basins, containing well-preserved fossils dated between 5 and 53 million years of age.
