This is a nearly complete lizard in Chiapas amber. Found this year (2018) near Simojovel, in Chiapas Mexico, this is an impressive piece. A little over an inch in length, you can see the outline of the body, some vertebrae, arm bones, and even some of the head bone structure. The entire piece of amber is about 2 x .5 x .25 inches.
This item is found on the Chiapas amber lizard page.
Berothidae is very closely related to the thorny lacewings which are often included in the Berothidae as subfamily "Rhachiberothinae". They are also occasionally considered to be the distinct family Rhachiberothidae or included as a subfamily in the mantidflies.
I love this piece. Here is a worker ant that no one in their right minds would bother. The jaws on this guy are just plain impressive. This is a trap door ant, Hymenoptera, Formicidae:Ponerinae. Trap door ants have jaws that will close at 145 mpg. These ants are rarely found in amber, an even rarely found in such good shape - this one is perfect. There is a nice piece of wood near the head of this defender ant.

Dinosaur's were plagued by ticks.
Feathered dinosaurs were covered in ticks just like modern animals, fossil evidence shows.
Parasites similar to modern ticks have been found inside pieces of amber from Myanmar dating back 99 million years.
One is entangled with a dinosaur feather, another is swollen with blood, and two were in a dinosaur nest.
Scientists say the discovery, which has echoes of Jurassic Park, is the first direct fossil evidence that ticks fed on the blood of dinosaurs. The BBC page has an article on this.
