22. Have they have found fossils in Antarctica?
Great Question! With a long answer.
The simple answer is YES they have found fossils in Antarctica, including many dinosaur species. I cannot list all of the fossils they have found and where they were found. But I can provide some good links for you about Antarctic fossil research:

The above info is explored further through this link, which includes a great video interview with a fossil scientist about fossils and climate change:
A new species of dinosaur was discovered in Antarctica in 2003. Here is a link to the PIs website. Check out the 2003 photos of them excavating the fossils: http://www.antarcticvp.com/research.html
And turtle fossils found last month! http://www.livescience.com/animals/ancient-turtle-eocene-antarctica-101019.html

Have fun exploring the world of fossils in Antarctica. I learned a lot as I put together this post.
