649 words - 3 pages

Washington is a very diverse place for fossils and sedimentary rock, with relatively young deposits of rock found on the Western and Eastern parts.

They flourished in the Precambrian era, but about 800 years ago are believed to have been over eaten by organisms, and left in few numbers to fossilize. Because they grow so slowly, as organisms began eating more and more, they were pretty much eaten off the planet.
