I remember amber

I have this robot insect and a piece of amber. The rest is obvious. The amber by the way has the remains of termites embedded in it. The person who sold the piece to me said they were ants which I think would have been more exciting, perhaps because I know more about ants than termites. But it is still exciting to realize that complex social behaviors date to the Cretaceous period 145 million years ago.
