Archaeologists Find 99 Million Year Old Frog Fossil

Scientists recently discovered a 99 Million year old amber fossil in Myanmar. What’s special about this one, shown above, is it contains a well preserved tropical frog. This is the oldest known fossil of its type, as small frogs typically don’t fossilize well. Previously, the oldest known frog fossil was about 40 Million years old. Needless to say this fossil tells us a lot about early amphibians.
