Trivia

The title is an allusion to the phrase "dead man walking," which means a condemned prisoner walking to the death chamber, or someone who is doomed to die. The fossilized species was historically doomed to extinction. See more »

Goofs

When the rock containing the fossil is found smashed at a crime scene, there are pieces of white bone interspersed among the black rock fragments. This is impossible as fossil bones are essentially part of the rock they are contained in and must be extracted by carefully carving the rock away from the fossil. If the rock had been smashed, the fossil would have fractured along with the rock, not been broken out of the rock. The fossil would also not be white as it is also technically rock due to the process of fossilization converting the bone to minerals, and so the fossil would be a dark stone color. See more »
