The work of archaeologists, paleontologists and scientists of all branches is of fundamental importance for understanding and reconstructing our past. Day after day, even the smallest fragments are examined, which contain immense knowledge within them.

The news we are about to cover comes from faraway Russia and sheds new light on what life (human and animal) was like in certain geographical areas of the country millions and millions of years ago. Let’s find out now and more closely what it is.

One of the oldest fossils in history has been discovered in the Yakutia region, and within it something even more amazing: the probable discovery of a new animal species. The news went around the world, leaving scientists speechless.

This animal species was found inside an amber and the most striking aspect is its perfect conservation conditions. But how is such a thing possible? How could this happen?

The researchers were particularly surprised, after the first analyses, to learn that the insect (belonging to the beetle family) could be more than 95 million years old and have lived in what is called the Cretaceous period.

But that’s not all, because this discovery took place in a region that is by definition poor in animals. This aspect, in fact, definitely skews the cards on the table about what is believed to this day. To date, this is only the second such discovery.
