Cockroach Fossil - Age: 108 - 92 Million Years
FOSSIL NO: SI0022
AGE: 108-92 million years
LOCATION: Crato Formation, Ceara, Brazil
Brazil's Araripe Basin is home to a fantastic array of exquisitely-detailed Early Cretaceous fossils, some of which have been preserved in three dimensions. The pronotum (head shield) and the venation of the wings of this cockroach can be examined in detail. This fossil, typical of the cockroaches alive 108 to 92 million years ago, is the same as ones living today, which shows that the theory of evolution is invalid.
