Researchers at Oregon State University discover a new type of insect fossilized in amber.
The 100 million-year-old specimen has unique features like bulging eyes with 360-degree vision, sticky feet to find and snare its food and an elongated mouth.
It measures a whopping five millimeters — less than a quarter of an inch..
It’s called Palaeotanyrhina Exophthalma.
The insect is so different from anything alive today that it needed to be placed in its own extinct family.
