The Fossilization of Trixi Triceratops - Video Story
This is the story of Trixi Triceratops who after an early demise on a sunny Jurassic beach finds a new life 65 million years later as a popular fossil in a museum. This movie describes the formation of fossils in an engaging and informative way and would be useful as an introduction to the topic of fossils for young students or learners of ESL.
