Imagine being able to hear the sounds of a prehistoric forest – the calls of long-extinct creatures echoing through the canopy. While time travel remains in the realm of science fiction, recent discoveries in the field of paleontology have brought us a step closer to this reality. Fossilized amber, the hardened resin of ancient trees, is not just a beautiful gemstone – it can also act as a remarkable time capsule, preserving not just the physical remains of insects and other small organisms, but also traces of their sounds!
