23-million-year-old lizard fossil found in Mexico
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.
Francisco Riquelme of the National Autonomous University of Mexico's Physics Institute told Efe that the find is a complete and articulated animal that also preserves remains of soft tissue and skin, Fox news reported.
The trapezoid-shaped specimen measures at about 1.8 inches by .5 inches and has been put on display at the Amber Museum in San Cristobal de las Casas. (ANI)
