Frozen In Amber: 100-Million Year Old Spider The Moment It Was Attacking A Wasp Trapped In Its Web

October 9, 2012 / amber, attack, cloning things, dinosaurs, freaky deaky, getting your kill on, i've always wanted a piece of amber with an insect in it but whenever i go to the gym and mineral show they're always charging an arm and a leg for one, insects, neato, old, spiders, whatever you do DON'T clone the f***ing spider that is a terrible idea

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. Sucks for you two! *tries to stand up but can't* F*** it, I'm peeing my pants.
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. I bet easily over $100.
Thanks to Georgia -- the lady, not the state. The state stopped sending me tips after I made fun of its peaches. IT WAS A JOKE, I love peaches.

I can't believe this was a common occurrence to begin with, then the chances of finding the thing a bazillion years later has to be astronomical. Gotta be worth at least 5-10$, right?
