100-Million-Year-Old Spider Attack Recorded in Amber
“Looks like this 100-million-year old spider didn’t get to enjoy its final meal.
Trapped in a piece of amber, the juvenile spider appears to be on the cusp of devouring a male wasp that was caught in its web. Such a grisly scene between spider and prey has never before been found in the fossil record.”
