Prehistoric tiny bugs found trapped in amber

13 posts in this topic

Scientists have found three well preserved ancient insects frozen in amber — and time — in what is Earth's oldest bug trap.

The discoveries of amber-encased insects in Italy may sound like something out of "Jurassic Park" but these bugs are even older than that. They are about 230 million years old, which puts them in the Triassic time period, and about 100 million years older than what had been the previously known oldest critters trapped in fossilized tree resin, or amber.

Our six-legged brothers and sisters the insects - evolving side by side through the perils and vastness of time.
