Still Waters

A 125 million-year-old fossil - described by scientists as an exceptionally cute furball - has been unearthed, scientists report.

The ancient creature has been preserved in exquisite detail, providing the oldest-known record of hedgehog-like spines and mammalian internal organs.

The creature, called Spinolestes xenarthrosus, was unearthed in Las Hoyas Quarry in central Spain.
