Jurassic Fossilhead is a zombie encountered in Jurassic Marsh in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It has no special abilities. Rather, the Jurassic Fossilhead is just a tougher Buckethead Zombie, which is a trait that shares with Knight Zombie and Blockhead Zombie.
Fossil skulls not only provide a huge amount of damage absorption, but are also extremely classy.
Contrary to his name, Jurassic Fossilhead's fossil head isn't actually a fossil. That's skull's maybe a week and a half old, tops.
Jurassic Fossilhead absorbs 99.25 normal damage shots and changes its appearance upon absorbing 27, 54, 90 (when its skull is destroyed), and 95 normal damage shots before dying at 99.25 normal damage shots.
Like Knight Zombie and Blockhead Zombie, this zombie can be problematic if you do not prepare. Additionally, Jurassic Fossilhead has the highest toughness out of the three when using certain instant kills. Just like Blockhead Zombie, its skull cannot be pulled off by Magnet-shroom, making it the hardest to deal with. If you spot it in the seed selection, choose instant kills (such as Chili Bean, Potato Mine, Shadow-shroom, or a Plant Food-enhanced Sun Bean) to kill it instantly. Especially, a Sun Bean fed with Plant Food is highly recommended, as a full-health Jurassic Fossilhead will give a huge amount of sun when killed. However, it should be kept in mind that a single Squash cannot destroy it. This zombie is doubly dangerous if combined with Jurassic Bucketheads, Jurassic Gargantuars, Jurassic Bullies, and dinosaurs. Try to use a Blover quickly when it is affected by a raptor, stegosaurus, or ankylosaurus, as this zombie can cause massive havoc if you do not act fast enough. You can also use a Celery Stalker to defeat it quickly.
Among the introduced plants in Jurassic Marsh, Primal Peashooter can help push back Jurassic Fossilhead. It is best to have at least two Primal Peashooters and a Primal Wall-nut on one lane for a great combination. Primal Potato Mine is also useful due to its fast arming speed and can even defeat groups of Jurassic Fossilheads.
- It has the strongest headwear in Plants vs. Zombies 2 and is the second toughest in the series (only surpassed by the Giga-Football Zombie's black football helmet).
- It, Camel Zombies, Admiral Helmet Zombie, Knight Zombie, Blockhead Zombie, Bug Zombie are the only new zombies in Plants vs. Zombies 2 which can degrade into a regular Zombie.
