Washington, July 9 (ANI): Scientists have found a 23-million-year-old whole fossil of a lizard in Mexico.

The fossil, which was discovered several months ago in the Simojovel amber deposits of the northern part of the southeastern state of Chiapas, has soft tissues of the new species of the genus Anolis that were preserved in amber.
