Products description

Fossil reptiles are naturally one of the rarities in the cretaceos amber from Myanmar. This Burmese amber features a very detailed fossil leg of a lizard together with an some insect remains. Lizards are relatively common in Burmese amber, compared to other Amber deposits. How ever it is remarkable that lizard leg often are entombed along with the remains of larger insects in the Burma Amber. This suggests that these gecko like lizards were feasting  the insects caught on the surface of the sticky araucaria resin. And may were occasionally also trapped in the resin. Perhaps these small lizards also lived on the araucaria trees. After all, the leaf scales of the these araucaria may have provided some good shelter in the Cretaceous jungle fur such small reptiles.

The present lizard fossil convinces with its high level of detail and the transparency of the surrounding amber. The lizards are often unsightly due to a veil on the upper surface of the scales. Not so with this copy.
The fossil lizard leg is about 9 mm long.
