Casts are a type of replica that is created from an original fossil. Although not genuine, such replicas are usually scientifically accurate and many of the Dinosaur skeletons you see in museums are casts. The real ones are kept for scientific study. Notable replicas include the many casts of Archaeopteryx. Casts can be made of resin, plaster or plastic.
