Ancient four-legged whale with webbed feet and hooves uncovered in Peru
Read this news article found on the Natural History Museum website about a new fossil discovery of this amazing creature. Read about how it was thought it had formed and where it had come from.
Task: Use the picture below to create your own fossil. To make your fossil you could use playdough, straws or salt dough. I have put a recipe for salt dough below but please make sure you are doing this with adult supervision.
- Combine salt, flour, and water in a small bowl or dish. Mix well until a soft dough forms.
- When the dough forms, roll out the dough so that it is an even thickness.
- Carve your fossil outline in to the dough using a pencil.
- Bake at 200 degrees until your fossil is dry.
