What is a paleontologist?

Paleontologists study fossils. Once paleontologist collect fossils in the field, they take them to the lab.

Some paleontologists clean fossils in the prep lab. Others observe them under a microscope (i.e. fossil pollen).

Paleontologists combined different sciences such as geology, biology and chemistry.
