Frozen In Amber: 100-Million Year Old Spider Attacking A Wasp

This is a 100-million year old spider about to attack a 100-million year old wasp, destined to remain frozen in the pose forever thanks to tree resin covering them at that exact moment. It’s pretty unbelievable. George Poinar, Jr., a zoology professor at Oregon State University, explains:

“This was a male wasp that suddenly found itself trapped in a spider web. This was the wasp’s worst nightmare, and it never ended. The wasp was watching the spider just as it was about to be attacked, when tree resin flowed over and captured both of them.”

 

Obviously, the first question on everyone’s mind is whether or not that spider has any dinosaur DNA in it, and, if so, whether John Hammond can assemble a team to clone it. But the SECOND question on everyone’s mind is what they’re going to charge for admission when they finally do open a Jurassic Park.
