DrogaMleczna posted a topic in Fossil IDA while back I bought this baltic amber piece with 2 insects that look like mosquito and a tick. It's likely real, since it glows in 385nm UV light, but what's its age and what are those insects inside it? Each square on the photos is 5x5mm. Thanks for any help!
Paleontologists have found ticks grasping a dinosaur feather entombed in cretaceous amber. Those buggers will outlive us. Although not yet published they probably contributed to their extinction https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-017-01550-z
