Welcome to the Fossil Mall Science Section!

One aspect of our business of which we are very proud is having served the education community since our inception a decade and a half ago. By educational community we mean teachers from elementary through university level, particularly the publishers of educational media, from books (we stopped counting at around 50 books) to numerous websites, museums, professional paleontologists, and even the Wikipedians whom we preceded on the web. We maintain a large library, electronic and hardcopy, follow the scientific literature closely, and really do our research on the fossils we sell. We strive to add value to each fossil we sell in descriptions that portray a taxon's importance within the tree of life, evolution and geologic history. It's been said that plagiarism is the highest compliment. If that be true, then we’ve done our job well, because the pithy summaries we provide have propagated all over the web, and you can find a myriad of them on EBay, for example.
