Bugs are cool, but lizards are cooler. Apologies to any resident entomologists. Here are some new vertebrates in my amber collection: - Chiapas amber from Mexico: 4cm lizard hips & tail on top of a nearly complete leaf (17-25myo) - Burmite amber: fat lizard tail (99myo) – is this a gecko? As a kid I had house geckos as pets and their tails were pretty similar. Maybe one day I'll be able to afford the whole lizard.
gieserguy posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHey all, I was just wondering if there has ever been a study comparing fossils of the organisms trapped in amber to similarly located/aged "conventional" rock fossils. It would certainly be interesting to see how the organisms compare between the two forms of preservation- one as a flattened impression and the other looking like it was just alive yesterday.
