Ural – one of the areas of our planet, which in various geologicheskie was hidden at first – Paleobalkan ocean, and later the West Siberian sea. In the later epoch on the territory of the southern Urals many millions of years, remained large reservoirs (with a giant lake or small sea) – the remains of the last sea. In the waters of the ocean and seas were inhabited by a variety of plants and animals that, upon death, was delayed in their day. For tens – hundreds of millions of years all bottom sediments turned to stone. Now the second century, researchers and nature lovers engaged in search and study of fossil organisms that once lived on the territory of modern South Urals.
