In order to become a fossil, a human, plant or animal needs to be quickly and completely buried. Humans caught in the World Wide Flood (found in the book of Genesis chapters 6-9) would logically try to save themselves any way possible. It is probable that as the Flood waters rose, humans continued to seek higher ground. As the humans and animals died, many would float and eventually sink - only to be washed away at the end of the Flood, when the mountains rose and the waters rushed off of the earth. Also, there were only two humans to start with - but lots of different animal kinds. So one would expect to find a lot more animal fossils than humans.
