How Old is that Lizard?

Plastic lizard embedded in clayI think it’s time to put on my Detective Dog hat because my person was cleaning up pine needles in my yard and look what she found. A lizard fossil.

This raises all kinds of questions. How did that lizard fossil get here? Where did it come from? How old is that lizard anyway?

I bet some paleontologist (did I say that word?) would be really excited to find this lizard. But he didn’t and I did – so I get to answer all these questions.

I bet this lizard lived thousands of years ago and this one got stuck in the mud way back when the rocks around here were white instead of red like they are now. Since I’ve never found any other kind of fossils, that proves that lizards are the oldest creatures around here – except for dogs, that is. Everyone knows that dogs have always been here – fossils or not.

When God created dogs He put them everywhere on earth because everyone needs to have a dog around. But lizards, they’re so scared they run away whenever they see somebody. They probably ran here because they were so busy running away from somebody somewhere else.

What, person? What do you mean? My younger person stuck that lizard in that rock when he was a little person? Well, that doesn’t make sense.

My younger person must be older than he looks to have stuck that lizard in that rock thousands of years ago. Maybe he’s into time travel. Oh boy, I think I’ve got another mystery on my hands.
