it's funny because scientists discovered petroleum isn't made from dinosaurs afterall, it's plant matter not animal.

It is a mixture of biological matter, primarily plant. But dino's, mammals, and insects, are all present as well in the matrix.

as a matter of fact, the bacteria that exists within the digestive tract of living animals causes the organic tissue to break down and decompose long before the fossilization process can occur. in other words, oil does not contain animal flesh. peat is, however, another story.

The same bacteria types are present in all biologic life, plants or animal. All are effected equally by time, and all fossilize, UNLESS that matter seeps into the soil during decomposition and/or is buried and compressed along with other biologic waste over millions of years.
