Mexican scientists are studying a complete lizard fossil that dates back 23 million years and was found preserved in amber.
The small piece of fossil resin, shaped like a trapezoid and entombing the skeleton, is a "complete and articulated animal," according to experts. It was discovered several months ago in the Simojovel amber deposits of the northern part of the southeastern state of Chiapas. The lizard was identified as a new species of the genus Anolis and is currently on display at the Amber Museum in San Cristobal de las Casas, according to EFE.
