New fossil finds

A new fossil discovery in Argentina Pategonia was found that marks the existence of bees 100 miliion years ago. This revelation of the oldest bee nest indicates that bees were alive earlier than previously thought based on preserved skeletons and body outlines. However, many other forms of and traces of life are found such as nests and burrows, footprints or imprints and pieces of faeces. All of these different forms add to the pieces completing the puzzles for Palaentologists and they provide evidence and clues to animal behaviour and moments in time.
