Dinosaur skin rapid fossilization

Normally, when an animal dies it decays quickly—the skin decays and the bones fall apart, or disarticulate. Finding fossilized 'soft tissue' such as skin implies very rapid burial—before it decayed. Describing a duck-billed dinosaur unearthed in South Dakota. One researcher said, 'You can see the individual scales ... Because of the presence of skin and the complete articulation of the animal it was obviously not killed and it was obviously not scavenged.' A worldwide flood would rapidly bury animals—and rapidly buried animals (not buried slowly) are exactly what we see in the fossil record.
