Authentic Fossils for Sale Online

Fossilicious has a huge selection of quality fossil specimens and learning material for sale. If you are interested in finding out about the different fossil categories, we put together a quick overview!

What is a Fossil?

The short answer is a fossil is the remains or evidence of any creature or plant that once lived on the Earth. There are of course some finer points to this definition. There are basically two types.

Type I is the remains of the dead animal or plant or the imprint left from the remains. This could be bones, teeth, hair, the hardened shell or exoskeleton of an animal, or the impressions of any of these things.

Type II are something that was made by an animal while it was living that has hardened into stone. These are called trace fossils. Type II can be footprints, burrows, or coprolite (animal poop).

Vertebrate Fossils

Biologists classify all animals into 2 groups vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with backbones. Vertebrate specimens are any type I fossil made by a fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, or mammal and we have a great selection of these for sale.

Invertebrate Fossils

So there are lots more animals that do not have backbones. Specimens of any of these animals are called invertebrate. Some examples of fossilized invertebrates for sale you can find are snails, clams, jellyfish, coral, trilobites, and ammonites.

For proof just give one to any child between the ages of 5 and 12 and watch their eyes light up. Older kids, like me at 58, still have the same reaction.


You Can Buy Fossils for Sale here individually, in one of our many Collections, or in our Classroom Packs.
