      • Do these look like cells in tissue?



        Sure do, don't they? A lot more than than these:


        They are both fossilized tissue. The reason that the first one looks so much better is that it was completely fossilized and all the organic matter was replaced by minerals. The second one looks less lifelike, because it was only incompletely fossilized, and the heme and collagen were not replaced, but merely preserved by excess iron.

        This is a common thing in marine paleontology; there are many instances where organic molecules (but not individual cells or tissue) remain preserved for millions of years.

        They aren't really cells or tissue; they are the shapes of cells, but the original molecules are mostly or entirely replaced by minerals.

        It would be pretty cool if that could happen; obtaining DNA or organelles from ancient organisms would be a real advance for biology. Still, there are things we can tell from the scraps of organic matter that remain...

        The test of heme (fragment of a hemoglobin molecules) showed that it was immunologically closest to birds and mammals, and was dissimilar to that of snakes, again confirming evolutionary predictions that archosaurs, including birds and dinosaurs, are more closely related to each other than they are to other reptiles.
