How did Dino's get fossilized ?

To become a fossil, the remains of an organism must not decay away to nothing, but instead be buried in some medium (mud, sand, ash) which generally (but not always) happens in water. This must lie undisturbed for long enough and under enough pressure from additional sediments for the material to become mineralized and turn into a fossil.

Environments such as rainforests teeming with life and in a hot and moist climate are also poor places for fossils to form as a carcass can decay quickly and not have time to be buried.
