Not Quite Dinos But: More On Preserved Muscle Tissue

The scientists claim that their discovery is unequivocal evidence that 
high-fidelity organic preservation of extremely decay prone soft tissues is 
more common in the fossil record - the only physical record of the history of 
life on earth. 
Previous examples of soft tissues fossilised in this way have been limited to 
samples extracted from amber or inside bone - a very rare set of circumstances. 
This latest discovery simply occurs inside the body of the salamander tucked in 
beside the spine.
