Yes, some volcanic eruptions can bury plants and animals. Eruptions such as the famous, documented eruption of Krakatoa generate pyroclastic clouds that obliterate everythin…g in their path. Pyroclastic flows are superheated rock and ash that move hundreds of miles per hour. This is generally in the late stages of an eruption, though. In cases like the famous eruption near Pompei, ash rains down from the eruption for a prolonged period of time, covering (and burying) plants and animals below, which can often preserve them for hundred of years.
