Fossils are pieces of living things that have been saved in the Earths crust for a very long time! Fossils can come from ANY part of a living thing; so all fossils are not made of the same material. The hard parts of the body usually last the longest, like bones and teeth, which are made of minerals. Fossils can also come from plants or bacteria if they are covered in amber, dried tree sap.
