Prehistoric Creatures Trapped in Amber

What was life like on earth at the time?

The life trapped in amber is critical to our understanding of life long ago before humans ever existed.

Over a hundred million years ago, tree resin dripped from the trees in a forest. As it dripped and fell to the ground, it covered some insects as they went about their daily life. Amber itself is formed from tree resin that, over thousands of years, fossilizes to produce first copal and then thousands or millions of years after that, amber. The sticky resin traps anything in its way, preserving it for millennia. Most of the life-forms found in true fossil amber are now extinct. Baltic amber gives us all a great opportunity to view fascinating world of prehistoric times.
