Fossils have five rare items, two being pets and there is also a mount.  Dig sites can be found in Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms. This is one of the four races you can Survey when first skill up Archaeology. (Surveying gives skill up until 100.)

Many players will find this mount early because of its required skill Fossilized Raptor .
