A 12 mill. year old praying Mantis.

Encased in amber, this creature's position of death is preserved eternally. The ancient geographer Strabo mentions how the people in the Baltic Sea used to gather it and sell it to the South, sometimes with finds similar to this one. It was sold in an auction, in 2016. #archeology #amber #paleontology #mantis
