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.
