Truly amazing…Miocene (~20 MYA) lizards, preserved in amber, “identical to their modern cousins.”
Ancient lizards in amber amaze scientists

A community of lizards from the Caribbean, preserved for 20 million years in amber, have been found to be identical to their modern cousins, say researchers.
This suggests the different niches inhabited by the lizards have – incredibly – changed little over the past 20 million-year, report the team, in this week’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
I guess the Warmists are wrong about climate change endangering lizards…
…because 20 million years ago, the climate was warmer than today, and the lizards lived through at 3.0°C temperature spike 15 million years ago.
