Leaned something new! RE: Some Data ....

I never have heard that fossils could be in such
a condition.  I have seen some rocks that were easily
crunched up by hand - must be along the same lines.
When things like this occur, is it due to something that
has happened to the fossil "recently" - how could it
have survived up till now in such a state?
